Basic Research on the Effects of Electric Motorcycle's Quietness on Pedestrian Safety


Since the traveling sound of an electric motorcycle is smaller than that of a gasoline motorcycle, pedestrians may not be able to easily recognize the traveling sound of an approaching motorcycle. The authors conducted a running test of a typical electric motorcycle sold in Japan to determine the distance needed for pedestrians to recognize its approaching sound. Further, the distance traveled from the occurrence of a hazardous event until the riders stopped their motorcycle was estimated in order to consider the measures necessary to ensure safety.電動二輪車の走行音はガソリン車よりも小さいため歩行者に気づかれにくい可能性がある.国内で販売されている代表的な電動二輪車の走行試験を行い,被験者が車両の接近を音で認知できる距離を調べた.さらに危険事象の発生からライダが二輪車を停止させるまでに移動する距離を推測し,安全の確保に必要な対策を検討した.
