Study period:2002 - 2003
Research overview:
We are now investigating using sliding manner of white stick about validity of pedestrian information set forth based on the result of the previous study conducted with accompaniment of visually handicapped people. We imagine the manner to use a white stick must be somewhat different in the busy area such as station plazas and commercial districts. In this study we inquire of visually handicapped people by hearing about use of white stick and walking manner and will propose an information providing method to pedestrians paying attention to shapes and materials of pavement.
