Inform the driver of possible warnings through haptic feedback
In collaboration with Volvo Cars Copenhagen, I have been researching about multimodality and the use of other senses in the automotive field. The result of these studies yielded to CARess low-cost haptic interface – presented to Olof Person, Volvo’s CEO, and Thomas Ingenlath, Senior Vice President Design, Volvo. The prototype is a matrix of 12 vibrating motors, which permits the creation of complex tactile feedback. The work has been presented at the conference Eurohaptics 2014 in Versailles - France.
My role within the project was to frame the challenge, design, build and evaluate the interface and the design of the haptic stimuli.
