Abstract

In this paper, we investigate the impact of face direction during traveling by Standing-Type Personal Mobility Device (PMD). The use of PMD devices has been a popular choice for recreational activities in the developed countries such as in the USA and the countries in Europe. These devices are not completely risk free and various accidents have been reported. Since that, the risk factors leading to accidents have to be investigated. Unfortunately, the research studies on the risk factors on riding PMD devices have not been matured as much as the studies on driving cars. In this paper, we evaluate the impacts of face angle on travelling trajectory during travelling in a PMD. We showed by experiments that, the face direction is an important factor in risk assessment for traveling by a PMD.
