Revision of E3028-16e1 Standard Practice for Computing Wheelchair Pathway Roughness Index as Related to Comfort, Passability, and Whole Body Vibrations from Longitudinal Profile Measurements


This work item is intended to move E3028-16e1 toward reapproval. However, two items have been identified as needing attention. 1. Confirm that the sample code and sample data do indeed provide the result presented in the standard. 2. Consider making revisions to accommodate surfaces that are on running slopes. As it stands, surface profiles that go up or down hill have higher roughnesses due to the overall change in elevation of the surface.
