Abstract:
Many researchers have attempted to solve existing traffic problems. One potential solution to these problems is to reduce traffic volumes in urban areas. In order for this to happen, a modal shift from conventional passenger vehicles to public transportation and eco-vehicles, including personal vehicles, should be considered. There are several types of personal vehicles; in this study, we focus on standing type personal vehicles for solving last mile/first mile problem. As opposed to bicycles, few people have experience in using standing type vehicles; the skill of riding these vehicles depends on the individual. By understanding the differences between skilled riders and unskilled riders, we would like to study for educational programs or assistant system for riding standing type vehicles. The objective of this study was to analyze the differences between skilled and unskilled subjects riding standing type vehicles. The experiment was performed to gather riding data for comparing the difference. We employed two standing type vehicles for the experiments. One is small, and the other is large. In the experiments, two types of subjects traveled the same course, and yaw, pitch, and roll data, and x-, y-, and z-acceleration data of each subject was gathered as riding data. In addition, time duration to finish the goal was evaluated. From the gathered results, the time duration was considered in this paper. In particular, by using the t-value, it was found that there was a significant difference in the time duration between skilled subjects and unskilled subjects when using a large type standing type vehicle. Thus, if we analyze the skill level for using standing type vehicles, we should consider the time duration to complete a slalom course.
