Next-generation haptic platform for advanced driver-assistance and mitigation of car accidents

Project description

Device in driver’s seat to prevent crashes

Driver distraction is a serious safety problem. Car drivers spend up to 30 % of total driving time on distracting activities, such as talking on a mobile telephone. Up to a third of all road crashes involve driver distraction. To address this situation, the EU-funded Tactronik project is developing an advanced driver-assistance platform integrated into the driver’s seat. Specifically, this new platform will be able to predict impending hazards and alert the driver to prevent accidents and increase driving safety. This new platform can easily connect to sensors on advanced driver-assistance systems to deliver attention-grabbing tactile sensations through advanced haptic technologies. Since Tactronik integration is plug-and-play, its commercialisation is easy.
