A STUDY OF PASSENGER BEHAVIOUR ON A SLOW SPEED TRAVELLATOR SYSTEM

An investigation has been completed of the behaviour of passengers boarding a slow speed travellator system. Film was obtained and the behaviour of 274 passengers subjected to a detailed slow motion analysis. The extent of human factor problems is indicated by the surprisingly large number of system users (31%) who experienced some degree of loss of balance when boarding the travellator. The study indicates that there is a definite relationship between the boarding style of passengers and any subsequent loss of balance they might experience. Several design recommendations are made on the basis of this study. (A) /TRRL/
