    Summary:Daily walking keeps our body healthy. However, it is difficult to continue walking as a daily habit. To promote the habit of daily walking, we focus on the effect of team work. We often achieve big goals with others by working as a team and assisting each other. In this paper, we propose a system that helps users work as a team in daily walking. Our system uses a smartphone and a web application to allow users to see not only his/her own activity but also his/her team members' activities. We expected that seeing the exercise data of team members would encourage an individual to exercise. We held a one-month field trial in Nagahama City as a walking event. A total of 457 participants (96 teams and 85 individuals) were enrolled in the trial. Each participant was asked to walk 40km within 10 days, which is equivalent to 10,000 steps a day. At the end of the trial, 87 out of 96 teams achieved this goal. Analysis of participants' records for teams consisting of 5 members showed a difference in walking distance of over 20km among team members in 80% of the teams. This finding indicates that even though not all members of a team walked the same distance, they achieved the team's goal by sharing target distances according to their capability. Web access records show that 85% of the team participants watched his/her team members' activity more than once every 2 days. Participants' responses to questionnaires showed that 73% of team participants used communication within team members to motivate themselves. Additionally, the number of people who walk everyday increased even three months after the trial. These results suggest that the team effect has the potential to motivate members to continue their exercising activities.

    Summary:In Japan, although the rapid aging of the population has caused serious traffic problems, only a few studies have investigated the behaviour of elderly drivers in real traffic conditions. The authors have been developing a system to automatically evaluate safe-driving skill through small wireless wearable sensors that directly measure the driver's behaviour. The authors aim is to promote safe driving by providing a personalised training program according to the individual's own shortcomings in driving behaviour. By employing the sensors together with GPS and driving instructors' knowledge, our system can automatically identify shortcomings in driving skill with an accuracy of over 80%. In February 2010, the Kyoto Prefecture Public Safety Commission, in Japan, certified our system as the first and only support tool for its mandatory retraining course for elderly drivers' that all elderly drivers, aged over 70 years, are required to take when renewing their driver's license. In this study, the authors discuss the effectiveness of our system and investigate elderly drivers' behaviour through a large-scale demonstration experiment, involving 749 elderly drivers, in the mandatory driver-retraining course on public roads. The authors results reveal that although elderly drivers are able to maintain a safe vehicle speed, their tendency to not scan around their vehicle to ensure safety makes their driving risky.

    Summary:In this paper, we describe an ongoing project to develop a collaborative safety mechanism based on mutual sharing of a driver's information (attention and performance). Most conventional driving safety approaches aim at assisting individual drivers by providing various types of safety information to the driver in the vehicle. However, the effect of such a system highly depends on the driver's response (performance), and it is unreasonable to expect sufficient performance in cases where the driver's cognitive performance is decreased due to fatigue, aging, or other factors. In our approach, we aim to share information on the driver's current performance level with other drivers and pedestrians. Using this sharing mechanism, the various people in a traffic environment will be able to better predict drivers' behavior, allowing them to take proactive actions to prevent accidents. We are now developing a system providing such a mechanism using both a performance-detection algorithm and an information-sharing method. For the detection part, we employ a behavior-based driver-evaluation method using multiple sensory devices. For information sharing, we are investigating both a method using vehicle-mounted displays and a method using wireless communication. In addition, we have also conducted a large-scale questionnaire investigation, involving more than 1,500 participants, to clarify the social acceptance of the proposed mechanisms.
  • Multimodal analysis of spatial characteristics of a real-world learning field, Masaya Okada, Masahiro Tada, Proceedings 2012 17th IEEE International Conference on Wireless, Mobile and Ubiquitous Technology in Education, WMUTE 2012, Proceedings 2012 17th IEEE International Conference on Wireless, Mobile and Ubiquitous Technology in Education, WMUTE 2012, 25 - 32, 2012 , Refereed
    Summary:Real-world learning is important because it encourages learners to obtain knowledge through various experiences. To increase the learning effects, it is necessary to analyze the diverse learning activities that occur in real-world learning and to develop workable strategies for learning support. Our viewpoint is that a real-world learning field is the key to promoting diverse learning interactions. Using the technologies of multimodal sensing and knowledge externalization, we propose a method to capture the time-series occurrence of real-world learning and to analyze the spatial characteristics of a learning field that draws out diverse intellectual interactions. Our data analysis found that each region in a learning field draws out different real-world learning. The analysis also showed that real-world knowledge is ubiquitously but unevenly distributed. Our method contributes toward discovering knowledge useful for learning support. © 2012 IEEE.

    Summary:Recently, underestimating traffic condition risk is considered one of the biggest reasons for traffic accidents. In this paper, we proposed evidence-based automatic hazard zone mapping method using wearable sensors. Here, we measure driver's behavior using three-axis gyro sensors. Analyzing the measured motion data, proposed method can label characteristic motion that is observed at hazard zone. We gathered motion data sets form two types of driver, i.e., an instructor of driving school and an ordinary driver, then, tried to generate traffic hazard zone map focused on difference of the motions. Through the experiment in public road, we confirmed our method allows to extract hazard zone. © 2010 ACM.

  • Public's Attitude and Acceptability to Driver's Cognitive Status Display System Based on Web Survey : Questionnaire Research in North America, TACHIBANA Hiroyuki, SHIDOJI Kazunori, UTSUMI Akira, TADA Masahiro, YAMAMOTO Naoki, MATSUO Noriyoshi, TORII Takeshi, 電子情報通信学会技術研究報告 = IEICE technical report : 信学技報, 113, 491, 31, 35,   2014 03 13 , http://ci.nii.ac.jp/naid/110009861451
    Summary:We have been proposing a system that informs surrounding people of the cognitive status of a driver. In this study, a web questionnaire (528 participants) about whether our proposed system is accepted socially or not was carried out in North America. As a result of the questionnaire, 24% of the respondents replied that they did not want to provide their cognitive condition. Meanwhile 19% of the respondents did not want to provide information about the vehicle movement information (speed, acceleration and direction of movement of the vehicle). In addition, 34% of the respondents did not want to provide the drivers personal information (gender and age). Considering the results, the idea of informing surrounding people of the cognitive status of a driver may be accepted in North America. The results are similar to those we conducted previous year in Japan.

    Summary:Despite the great efforts that have been made to improve vehicles and road safety equipment, the number of traffic accidents, especially those involving elderly drivers, is still at a generally high level. In addition to focusing on vehicles and roadside safety, driving behavior should also be considered in schemes to reduce traffic accidents. We have been developing a system to automatically evaluate safe-driving skill through small wireless wearable sensors that directly measure the driver's behavior. Using the system, we trained over 1,000 drivers by providing a personalized training program according to the individual's own shortcomings in driving behavior. In this paper, using the measured driving behavior data in our training program, we investigate driving characteristics of drivers. We also introduce our real-time safety driving advice system.

    Summary:We have proposed the system which informs nearby traffic participants about drivers' cognitive status to prevent traffic accidents. In this survey, we conducted a Web survey (n=1, 545) on whether the proposed system is socially accepted. Seventy-three percent of the licensed driver (n=1, 030) answered they permit to give the information on their cognitive status. Considermg that the information on the vehicle (velocity, acceleration or direction) was 91 percent and private information (sex or age) of the driver was 32 percent, the results suggests that providing the information on driver's cognitive status may be possible accepted socially. The trend which respondents who considered that the provision of information about the driver's cognitive status was useful in road safety were affirmative to provide information was observed.

    Summary:Car-pedestrian accidents were mainly caused by inattention and lack of risk perception of both drivers and pedestrians. We proposed new support system for driving safety to reduce such accidents that shares the information about driver's cognitive status with other traffic participants. In this study, we investigated the effect of visual information for alerting pedestrians. The results indicated the possibility that visual information reduce the number of accidents between car and pedestrians.

  • Human Tracking Using Particle Filters Based on Detecting Direction of Transitions between Regions, SAKAMOTO Tatsuya, TADA Masahiro, OHMURA Ren, NAYA Futoshi, NOMA Haruo, TORIYAMA Tomoji, KOGURE Kiyoshi, SANO Mutsuo, IEICE technical report, 108, 45, 43, 48,   2008 05 22 , http://id.ndl.go.jp/bib/9527198
    Summary:Existing works for human tracking mainly considering two areas: (1) open area having very few obstacles and/or partitions, (2) partitioned area spacially divided into regions with walls. However from the viewpoint of practical applications, we should consider semi-open area (e.g. shopping malls, convenience stores) having many partitions but not spacially divided into regions. In semi-open area, whereas sensor signals (e.g. radio) could freely fly over partitions, human could not go through them. In this paper we propose a novel method for human tracking in semi-open space. By using multiple particle filters for error detection/correction, our method allows to estimate human trajectory with precision 85.7%.

    Summary:In this paper, we propose a method for directly measuring and analyzing driving behavior using wire less 3D-accelerometers. Whereas existing systems installed many sensors into a specially equipped test vehicle to indirectly measure driving behaviors, our method uses wireless 3D-accelerometers attached to a driver for directly measuring his/her behaviors in a vehicle. After applying independent component analysis(ICA) to reduce car-caused noise, our method detects anomalies in driving behaviors using one-class SVM. By directly measuring driving behavior, our method allows to point out anomalies in driving behaviors characteristics to novice drivers with precision of 85.7% and recall of 65.1%.
