Résumé / Abstract
Low-floor vehicle design proves to improve the accessibility of urban buses to people with reduced mobility. In France, owing to the experience gained from the low-floor tramways, it soon appeared necessary to have a system approach and consider the low-floor bus within its urban environment. This paper describes the results of the research and development project initiated by the Grenoble network in order to reach efficient guidance solutions at would ensure minimal gaps at the bus stops. Operating conditions of accessibility equipment on the vehicle (kneeling, access ramp) as well as drivers' capabilities to dock at the bus stop have been investigated from the results, an improved bus stop was designed and two prototype systems - gibus visual aid and visee guidance system - were conceived and tested. Their evaluation during operation on a bus city of Grenoble, concentrated on assessment of the systems performance and human factors so that recommendations were drawn before implementation.
