Systems and methods are provided for enhancing pedestrian safety, particularly in or near sensor-equipped smart spaces. A pedestrian indicates to a security service of a smart space that he wishes to walk from a starting location to a destination. The service identifies a plurality of pedestrian routes to the destination. The service also receives, from a nearby connected vehicles, information indicating what areas are coved by sensors of those vehicles. For each route, the system calculates a security metric based at least in part on the proportion of the route covered by the vehicle sensors. The system informs the pedestrian of the different routes and their associated security metrics. In some embodiments, the system may direct an autonomous vehicle to reposition itself to improve sensor coverage along a selected route.
