     View Summary

    For the purpose of the acquisition of the new user and the increase in user, various use promotion measures are carried out by the community bus. Today, The measure for the purpose of bringing up attachment and support awareness for the bus is worked on.<br>In such situation, it is that following two are important. First, evaluate a measure transversely and clarify the difference of the evaluation. Next, clarify about the relationship with the actual situation of the use and the evaluation and the attachment and support awareness to a bus.<br>In this study, we took up community bus &ldquo;Taco-bass&rdquo; of Akashi-shi, Hyogo as an example. We clarified the influence that the relation with the community bus such as the evaluation for various use promotion measures or the use of the bus, or the situation of the movement limitation, gave to support awareness, and showed consideration for the breeding of the support awareness.

  • AN EMPIRICAL STUDY ON VERBAL MAP GUIDELINES FOR VISUALLY-IMPAIRED PEOPLE NAVIGATION CONSIDERING DAILY MOBILITY NEEDS

    TAKAHASHI Mei, UCHIDA Takashi

    Japan Society of Civil Engineers, Journal of Japan Society of Civil Engineers, Ser. D3 (Infrastructure Planning and Management)  72 ( 5 ) I_1085 - I_1094 2016  [Refereed]

     View Summary

    Unlike sighted people, visually-impaired people cannot use a high performance pedestrian navigation system. Therefore, they must ask sighted people to take them to a place to which they have never walked before. And, they cannot know peripheral facility and scene in a place walking in everyday life. In this way, a digital divide occurs between visually-impaired people and sighted people.<br>The purpose of this study is to revise verbal map guidelines that show rules for describing features in a town to enhance everyday mobility. Therefore, this study figures out feature information visually-impaired people use in everyday life.<br>This study presents a review of earlier studies and related studies, and make a speech augmented reality (AR) application. Because a speech AR application can get information only for hearing, it is available to visually-impaired people like sighted people using a AR application. Then, two kinds of field experiments are conducted. The first experiment is a monitor experiment and has visually-impaired people use a smartphone which implemented a speech AR application in everyday life. The second experiment is a site experiment and has them use a pedestrian navigation system and walk in a course we set according to it. Finally, from the hearing result of those experiments, verbal map guidelines are revised.<br>This study shows a pedestrian navigation system necessary for visually-impaired people considering daily mobility needs. This system will lead to the early practical use and expansion possibility of a pedestrian navigation system for visually-impaired people.
