HUMAN ENGINEERING STUDIES OF HIGH SPEED PEDESTRIAN CONVEYORS

A STUDY WAS MADE OF HUMAN ENGINEERING ASPECTS OF PEDESTRIAN CONVEYORS DESIGNED TO RUN AT SPEEDS OF 10-16 KM/H. THE THREE BROAD ASPECTS STUDIED WERE: THE TOLERANCE OF PEDESTRIANS TO THE MOTION OF THE ACCELERATOR OR DECELERATOR, THEIR ABILITY TO TRANSFER BETWEEN ACCELERATORS, DECELERATORS AND CONVEYORS, AND GENERAL SAFETY, THE LABORATORY EXPERIMENTS DESCRIBED PROVIDED NEW DATA TO BE USED IN THE SELECTION OF APPROPRIATE ACCELERATIONS, DECELERATIONS, SPEED DIFFERENTIALS OR TRANSFER LENGTHS. ATTEMPTS ARE MADE TO ESTIMATE FULL-SCALE STATION LENGTHS AND THE STATION LENGTHS FOR VARIOUS TYPES OF SYSTEM ARE COMPARED. SOME SUGGESTIONS ARE MADE FOR REDUCING THE LENGTH OF STATIONS. /TRRL/
