Less-distracting haptic feedback could make car navigation safer than GPS audio and displays | KurzweilAI

Human factors/ergonomics researchers at General Motors and an affiliate have performed a study using a new turn-by-turn automotive navigation system that uses haptic cues (vibrations) to the temples to communicate information to drivers on coming turns (which direction and when to turn), instead of distracting voice prompts or video displays.They modified a prototype smart-glasses device with motors in two actuators…
