  • Discussion on differences in frequency band required for horizontal sound localization by age

    Okuno T., Hirakawa R., Kawano H., Nakashi K., Nakatoh Y.

    ACM International Conference Proceeding Series      2019.05  [Refereed]

     View Summary

    © 2019 Association for Computing Machinery. In this paper, the horizontal sound image experiment of the real sound source was performed under the head resting condition using the band - limited noise using the low pass filter and the band pass filter. Then, the effect of each frequency band on direction perception of the hearing person and the elderly person was clarified. Five people with healthy men in their twenties and five elderly people in their 70s male hearing white noise pass through low-pass filters (2, 3, 4, 5, 6 kHz) and band-pass filters (1-4, 2-4, 2-5 [kHz]) passed through the directional perception experiment. As a result, similarly to the previous study [1], it is difficult to perceive directions sufficiently if two or more frequency bands are included, and it is difficult to perceive the direction of band-pass noise through a band-pass filter of a narrow frequency band. As a result of this research, Direction perception was found that the frequency band around 4 [kHz] and 6 [kHz] is small as an element of direction perception and the frequency band around 5 [kHz] is an important clue for direction perception.

  • Study on watching system for door-to-door sales detection and risk determination

    Hirakawa R., Kawano H., Nakashi K., Nakatoh Y.

    ACM International Conference Proceeding Series      2019.05  [Refereed]

     View Summary

    © 2019 Association for Computing Machinery. In recent years, malicious visit sales are increasing in Japan, targeting elderly people living alone and dementia patients. Since it is difficult for them to deal with problems with their own power, it is necessary for surrounding people to support damage deterrence. So, we aim to realize a watching system that anyone can use if there is only a smart speaker. In this study, we propose a method to detect door-to-door sales from conversation information of elderly people and visitors with the aim of realizing a system to prevent elderly consumers' troubles. In the evaluation experiment, we evaluate how accurately door-to-door sales can be detected out of the conversation dataset. In addition, we try to determine the risk degree by learning the door-to-door sales sample data given the risk label.

  • Study on method of veering correction by vibration transmission in walking support for visually impaired people

    Hirayama T., Hirakawa R., Kawano H., Nakashi K., Nakatoh Y.

    ACM International Conference Proceeding Series      2019.05  [Refereed]

     View Summary

    © 2019 Association for Computing Machinery. In Japan, accidents are occurring when visually impaired people go out. For example, a collision with an obstacle such as a person or a wall, or a fall from the station platform. A current measure for this problem is a voice guidance. However, visually impaired people place importance on auditory information. Therefore, it is difficult for them to hear surrounding sounds during listening the voice guidance. There is a previous research that trying to guide the visually impaired people to their destination by vibration transmission. However, although this study have realized the guidance of the visually impaired people to their destination without interrupting environmental sounds, this method cannot correct the veering in real time. For above reason, we propose a veering correction system by vibration transmission, which does not disturb acquisition of auditory information. This is a system that gives them vibration by wearing a vibration motor on their shoulders and corrects the veering. In this article, we conducted verification experiment of the effectiveness of the veering correction by vibration transmission as a preliminary study in the development of the veering correction system. As a result of the research, we were able to keep the deviations from over 100 cm to less than 100 cm. As a conclusion, vibration transmission is effective as a method of correcting the veering of visually impaired people.

  • Study on evaluating risks of routes damages at Earthquakes for evacuation guidance system

    Mihara Y., Hirakawa R., Kawano H., Nakashi K., Nakatoh Y.

    ACM International Conference Proceeding Series      2019.05  [Refereed]

     View Summary

    © 2019 Association for Computing Machinery. In recent years, the damage caused by the earthquake has become very large in Japan. Secondary disasters such as tsunami and fire are the main causes of death due to the earthquake, both of which are causes of evacuation delay. Rapid evacuation is important in the event of a disaster. However, due to the earthquake, various obstacles will occur in the aisle. Obstacles may occur due to the collapse of houses due to the earthquake and it may take time to pass. If you can obtain information about the aisle in advance and avoid evacuation routes in advance, you can complete evacuation safer and more quickly. As a method of acquiring traffic information, We thought that the use of SNS is useful from the viewpoint of the real-time nature of information and the penetration rate of young people aggressively actively communicating information. In this research, we proposed an evacuation guidance system to evacuate users with a safe shortest route. Then we examined the danger of passing through obstacles. As a result, "road shredder" is evaluated as the most dangerous, and "road crack" is evaluated as the most secure.

  • In load collapse prevention system Examination of the relationship between truck vibration and load inclination

    Inoshita C., Hirakawa R., Kawano H., Nakashi K., Nakatoh Y.

    ACM International Conference Proceeding Series      2019.05  [Refereed]

     View Summary

    © 2019 Association for Computing Machinery. ACM In recent years, the demand for the logistics industry has increased enormously due to the spread of Internet mail order. On the other hand, the number of fatal accidents caused by trucks is more than 10,000 a year in Japan. Above all, there is a problem that there is an annual fatal and fatal accident due to truck load collapse. In this study, using the drive recorder, we calculated the inclination of the package photographed during driving by using KCF of object tracking method of image processing. Comparing the change of the Luggage tilt and the amount of change in 3-axis acceleration attached to the vehicle/ time of each frame in all the data, frames at each maximum value point almost agreed at the time of” When riding over convex part of inclined road”. On the other hand, “When a sudden steering wheel during driving”, a point where the absolute value of the change in package inclination during one frame reaches 0.005 ° and the point where the maximum change occurs after that. It almost coincided with the point where the curve was reached in the video. As for the 3-axis acceleration sensor, there is no difference in tendency between the curve and the straight running, and it is considered as the main cause that the influence of the roughness of the road is greatly influenced rather than the influence at the time of the curve.
