AN INVESTIGATION OF ROAD CROSSING IN A VIRTUAL ENVIRONMENT

This study investigated the road crossing behavior of children and young adults using a virtual reality system and head mounted display. Results indicated that younger children tended to have more collisions and/or tight fits than older children, although there were no age effects on the timing measures employed. Overall pedestrians performed better in uniform speed than uniform distance trials, suggesting that pedestrians may base their road crossing behavior primarily on inter-vehicle distance.
