Haptic Feedback

turnSetUp some potential feedback interactions for turning, direction and stopping

…. some peer reviewed resources on haptic feedback and navigation

Notes:

-applying forces, vibrations and/or motions to a haptic enabled device
– memory recall tests – humans require spatial studies in order to navigate their environment: a mental representation of that environment and the ability to determine a route
– navigation requires location, distance and orientation
– a user’s interaction with their environment must always be paramount to user’s interaction with navigation system – egocentric or allocentric spatial strategies (user or environment)
– systems that define shortest routes as opposed to pre-programmed routes
– different vibration sequences used to indicate distance to targeted way points
– they work without visual aids and with distractions
– afford greater interaction with the environment
