Abstract

Hiroshima City is surrounded by mountains on its three sides, the east, north, and west, except the south facing the sea, and besides, its urban area places delta region. For this reason, the population of Hiroshima City is concentrated in the slope residential estates at the surrounding mountains of the city. However, the living environment of the suburban slope residential estates doesn't seem so suitable for vulnerable road users, mainly elderly people. Thus in this paper, based on the traffic attitude survey results for residents in the slope residential estates at Itsukaichi district, Hiroshima City, previously conducted by our previous works, we examine an effective way to support vulnerable road users and to enrich their life. Especially, we develop a prototype system to support the transportation for residents living in a place where public transportation is not sufficiently developed.
