The content mainly includes the following three parts: 1. General arrangement of the universal design philosophy and principle, collect literature on the evaluation of universal design and user group categorization, summarize the construing essentials of the evaluation system and establish the user group categorization that can be applied in the transportation environment. 2. Investigate the evaluation indicator characteristics of transportation environment through interview method and observation method. 3. Establish a universal design evaluation system that can be applied in the transportation environment and verify and check on its applicability through the movement line of B1 of Taipei Railway Station.
The essentials of the evaluation system：(1)Based on the user viewpoint of plurality category including facility administrator, its result is comparatively objective.(2)Depending on the evaluation requirement of the evaluation target chrematistics and establish the evaluation detail item according to characteristic in order to facilitate evaluation.(3)Aiming at the facility environment, the systematic universal design viewpoint used in what kind of system cannot be ignored.(4)The calculation method of various organizations shall aim at conformity with the level of agreement of the evaluation direction to give score and only that the class of level of agreement is different.(5)The display method of the evaluation result can allow the evaluator to analyze easily and to compare the universal design achievement level and characteristics of the facility.
The research summarized into 15 categories of evaluation indicator characteristics of transportation environment: (1) Equality(2) Accommodation(3) Operational (4) Information(5) Whether the facility can be discovered easily(6) Toleration and safety (7) Effort saving(8) Peace of mind(9) Reasonable planning(10) Durability(11) Economics (12) Maintenance condition(13) Comfort(14) Beauty(15) Environmental protection and energy saving
The evaluation system including：(1)The essentials of the evaluation system.(2)Evaluation framework and process.(3)Evaluation tables.(4)Amend after evaluation. And research findings show：(1)The evaluation item be simplified is better.(2)During the evaluation, the feeling is more accurate when the user uses the facility the first time.(3)The number of the evaluator group should be even as much as possible so that the evaluation result can be more objective.(4)Add in the evaluation of correlated facility and this is helpful to reflect the problem of continuation during usage of facility.(5)Suggest the wheelchair user can distinguish between electrical wheelchair and manual wheelchair.(6)Simulated experiment and real condition may have slight difference, suggest real condition user has priority.(7)During evaluation, consider add in the interview method, can know the problem more suitable.(9)If full blindness fill in on behalf, people with amblyopia can not fill in easily.(9)The English edition and Japanese edition is required.
