ln this paper we evaiuate a recognizability of elevato ゼs open / close signs , Aims of this research are to examine which sign is easy to recognize among three type signs ; English, Chinese ideograms , Arrows、 and which factors infiuence recognition . A task of the expehment was showing avideo − soene , in which someone tries to get on or off an elevator , so the subject should seleCt a suitable sign, it was found out that [ OPENiCLOSE ] is good, and 【 開 ノ 閉 1 is not bad, but Arrow sign is bad
more » ... Arrow sign is bad to recognize from the result of experiment . Therefore , we canied out door experiment to investigate the reason why [ 開 1閉 】 was hard to be reoognize than [ OPEN / CLOSE 】 by comparlng [ PushlPul1 】 With [ 押ノ 弓1 } . The result showed that [ 押/ 引 】 was easier than[ PushlPull 】 . Thus 、 we can say that resemblance of the sign ' s shape is an important亀 ctor that infiuences recognition . And , we can say that adeptness to the charaCters is important too, from the result which English − speaking subjects distinguished better English ideogram , and Japanese subjects distingulshed better Chinese ideograms . Also , we oonsidered some issues: why arrow sign is bad , and the importance of showing a real situation , and so on
