This project has reviewed the state-of-the art in developments in innovative active travel modes and investigated techniques for monitoring and evaluating their health impacts. The review has covered cycling, skateboards, scooters and electrically assisted vehicles such as Electrically Assisted Pedal Cycles (EAPC; also known as e-bikes), powered scooters, skateboards, hoverboards and Segway scooters, also known as Personal Light Electric Vehicles (PLEVs). It brings together a diverse range of evidence related to active travel and health benefits in one place, to provide a starting point for identifying fruitful areas for further work aimed at further encouraging active travel and in particular innovative forms of active travel.
The project carried out a review of the technologies involved in e-bikes, personal light electric vehicles and electrically powered mobility aids and has created a single source of reference on these technologies and the standards which are in operation or under development.
