Measurement of sidewalk profile using portable profilers developed in Japan

After the Japanese legislature passed a law called "transportation accessibility improvement law" in 2000, portable profilers were developed to easily, rapidly and accurately measure sidewalk evenness and incline. This paper presents the mechanism of these portable profilers and the methodology for calculating the profile from the measured data. It also discusses the accuracy and repeatability of portable profilers using data obtained by on-site measurements.
