What about a Tall cardboard Box
48" Tall !8" Wide 8"Deep
Used to ship guitars
Would That work?
You seem to know quite a lot answer this if you can
When i First Got My 2019 Leaf SL late September and I Charge it Home for the First Month it Read 176 Miles Of Charge
Now 60 Days Later it Charges to 152 miles and the Charging is done at home with a 220 Nissan Charger
on its own dedicated 30 amp Breaker and wired up with the Proper Wire the same charger i used for 4 years on my 2015 model

Cardboard can do much more damage than plastic bag material.

The range estimator is called the "Guess O Meter" because it tries to predict the future, based on past driving. The current readings are closer to accurate.

I had the "opportunity" to test my 18 SL pedestrian braking and emergency braking features recently.

For the ped test, I was driving along in the evening, dark outside, slowed to an intersection, preparing to turn right. Vehicle had not come to a complete stop and BOOM a random woman decides to fast walk right past my vehicle not even paying attention. Vehicle beeped loudly with the huge triangle and exclamation point, causing my reaction to slam on the brakes. The person was nearly invisible coming from the side in the dark.

For the emergency braking again at night, I was pulling to an intersection when the vehicle in front, which was very close, suddenly stopped. In this case my LEAF sensed I was too close, beeped / display turned triangle AND slammed on the brakes for me.

Fairly impressed that in both situations it detected the pedestrian and stopped vehicle before I could react. I agree with using a large plastic bag, maybe with a large styrofoam filling (like from one of those huge tv boxes) could be a good simulation.

Try a large garbage bag with a quart of water in the bottom, filled with air.
Plastic and styrofoam are going to be essentially 100% radar transparent. A foil-lined bag would probably work.

Mine will beep at me when I put it in reverse in a parking lot with someone walking behind the car. How about just having someone walk by you as you back up (slowly, don't hit anyone!!) and see if it notifies you? This does not test the automatic braking part, but the sensing part is tested.

Are we sure that it uses radar alone...?

The Rear Alarm Works fine
So do the Lane Markers Right And Left
The Blind Spot Alarm as well
And the Self Steering which is Pretty wild deal
when you take your hands off the wheel and it steers itself
Until it yells at you to get your hands back on the wheel
Still have not been able to get the Front Emergency Braking to work
tried the Trash Bag With Water no dice Nothing happened!
I thought more of the car when it Fully charged to 176 miles
it was great now at 152 miles when Fully charged it seems to go
down quick almost bringing back the Range Anxiety this colder
weather the last few day has really affected the mileage range
I expected that on my 2015 but not this 2019 i wonder if the battery
is losing storage capacity already hope not its a 2018 Fall Build

The range estimate doesn't represent the battery capacity - it only represents how far the car thinks it can go under the most recent driving conditions. Cold weather reduces range.

I'm sorry the garbage bag test failed. Another poster may have been right: if the car uses radar only for pedestrian detection, then you may need a foil-lined bag. I find it odd that radar is used to detect children, though...

In this video, starting at 2:03 it shows the Europe testing of the AEB for vehicle obstructions and pedestrians. I wonder what material is in the fake walking person in there?
