In the simulation at the end of this video, the hood has blown before anything touches it. Gotta be dependent on the front impact sensors..

I brake for animals, but since those actuators cost $244 each, and I am not sure what triggers them, obviously I don't want several thousand $$$$ in collision repair for an errant kitty. My wife hit a wild turkey and it costs us about $760.

If the hood actuators are triggered by a small animal, there's nothing you can do about it so why are you concerned about this matter? Braking or swerving to avoid the animal is the only option you have to avoid this from happening.

If you hit something, anything, it's always gonna involve some cost, so avoid it altogether whenever possible.
If it absolutely cannot be avoided, then whatever cost associated with it cannot be avoided, therefore there's no benefit to figure out exactly how much..

I'm sure all the animals, on their own forums, are asking the same question "Which car to Kamikaze that will cost the owner the most amount to repair" LMAO

If you think this may be a expensive fix, the next generation will cost more as they are planning a fully deployed airbag for the entire width of the front window and will also pop up the hood.
