Research on Improved Design of Distance Measuring Wheel for Measuring Traffic Accidents

Conference paper
Part of the Advances in Intelligent Systems and Computing book series (AISC, volume 1217)


When a traffic accident occurs, the scene of the accident must be quickly ruled out, The most time it takes for a traffic police to handle a traffic accident is to measure the scene of the accident. The main tool for measuring traffic accidents is distance measuring wheel. The plan takes the distance measuring wheel as the research object, and intends to improve its design through research and investigation to improve the work efficiency and reduce the danger of traffic police. This research is divided into 5 stages including the first stage of observation method, the second stage of user experience interviews, the third stage of Kanano mode and satisfaction factor survey, the fourth stage of the improved design of the ranging wheel, and the fifth stage of product usability. The improved design obtained through research and investigation results is (1) telescopic storage of the measuring wheel and a spherical shaft; (2) the addition of night-time reflectivity and night-time lighting functions; (3) the use of liquid crystal optical ranging; (4) direct upload to the cloud for measurement report. The results of this study can be used as a reference for the design of R & D ranging wheels, and can improve the efficiency, convenience and reduce the danger of traffic police work.
