Real World Walking Speeds of Young Pedestrians 2001-01-0897

This paper provides a reference for “real world” walking speeds of young pedestrians. The subjects of the study were unaware elementary school children crossing at marked crosswalks adjacent to elementary schools. The unaware pedestrians were videotaped at 30 frames/second with a camera hidden in a parked vehicle that was not visible from the crosswalks. The pedestrians' constant walking speeds were ascertained from analysis of the video recording. The walking speed data was categorized according to gender, estimated age, number of pedestrians in a group and time of day. The observed trends were compared to data from existing studies.
