     View Summary

    <p>In the suburbs of medium-sized cities in Thailand, which are expected to be dependent on automobile mobility due to development without public transport, individual differences in mobility are expected to arise depending on the availability of vehicles and the degree of physical ability. Therefore, in this study, we evaluated the mobility of suburban residents in Khon Kaen city with consideration of individual differences. First, all the modes of transportation in the target area were identified, and then, based on the Capability Approach, the availability of each mode of transportation was clarified from the status of possession of goods and conversion capacity. In addition, a cluster analysis with the availability of each mode of transportation possessed by an individual as a variable was conducted to categorize the mobility of the residents. The results demonstrate the diversity and individual differences in the mobility of suburban residents, which are divided into three categories: "Mutual aid type" which various modes of transportation are available, "Private car dependent type" which only private cars are available, and "Public aid and Motorcycle type" which transportation services such as taxis and motorcycles are available.</p>

  • EVALUATION ON BUS ROUTE BASED ON THE STRUCTURE OF ROAD HIERARCHY

    KATO Keita, TANAKA Shinji, NAKAMURA Fumihiko, ARIYOSHI Ryo, MIURA Shino

    Journal of Japan Society of Civil Engineers, Ser. D3 (Infrastructure Planning and Management) ( Japan Society of Civil Engineers )  76 ( 5 )   I_1013 - I_1021   2021.04  [Refereed]

    Joint Work

     View Summary

    <p>The idea of road hierarchy is suggested in UK in 1963 to improve urban environment. This idea has influenced the road planning policy of the world including Japan. However, the standard of the bus service on each road is not indicated. In addition, bus route is determined based on demand and the road hierarchy is not considered. This study aims to evaluate bus route based on the structure of road hierarchy. Study area is Tama new town in Japan, because road in the area is designed systematically. This study revealed the trade-off relationship between the bus travel distance, number of lines, walking distance, and travel time. We found that from the viewpoint of the bus operator, it is preferable to set bus route on higher level roads, from the viewpoint of the bus user, it is preferable to set bus route on lower level roads.</p>

  • A STUDY ON THE COORDINATED TRAFFIC SIGNAL CONTROL CONSIDERING BOTH AUTOMOBILES AND BICYCLES

    FUKUYAMA Daichi, TANAKA Shinji, NAKAMURA Fumihiko, ARIYOSHI Ryo, MIURA Shino

    Journal of Japan Society of Civil Engineers, Ser. D3 (Infrastructure Planning and Management) ( Japan Society of Civil Engineers )  76 ( 5 )   I_1361 - I_1369   2021.04  [Refereed]

    Joint Work

     View Summary

    <p>Recently, as for bicycle traffic in Japan, traveling space has been improved throughout the country. However, there is still little discussion about traffic signal control. The coordinated signal control is also in this situation. In this study, we set the objective to obtain knowledge for traffic administrator to operate the coordinated signal control considering both automobile traffic and bicycle traffic. In the theoretical analysis using through band width, we showed that the conditional expression for operating the effective coordinated signal control considering both automobiles and bicycles is determined corresponding to both automobile's speed and bicycle's speed. In the examination of practical application using traffic simulation, comparing the results of multiple cases in the case study, we showed the optimal traffic signal control for both automobiles and bicycles. In conclusion, based on these two analyses, we summarized various factors that have the effect of coordinated signal control.</p>

    Joint Work

     View Summary

    <p>Recently, there are many streets that is aimed to be comfortable and walkable in Japan. Ideally, the most walkable street operation is pedestrian mall, however, some people are opposed to it. Therefore, the way of making good streets without shutting out cars is needed. This article aims to make clear the interaction between pedestrians and cars in shared space in Japan. The interaction is frequently occurred when a person and a car pass each other on a narrow road, especially in shared space. That situation looks dangerous, but they may recognize safety distance. We analyse video and kept record of positional relation, speed and the type of cars and pedestrians. As a result, it seems that they avoid each other by observing the other's behavior, and get the minimum safety distance that is needed when pass each other, that is about 1m.</p>

    Joint Work

     View Summary

    <p>For the future development of planning method including topographical factors, this study aims to reveal the evaluation method of topographical factors in current urban transportation plans in Japan. Through the review of transportation plans, it was found that 12 transportation plans by 9 cities have evaluated topographical factors. Those evaluation approaches can be classified into 3 groups and their indices, relationship with transportation projects in hilly districts and problems on those methodologies were revealed through interview survey with municipalities and topographical analysis with GIS.</p>
