Abstract:Since motorcyclists figure disproportionately in accident statistics, safety feedback devices can be important life saving measures. Motorcycles also face a woefully underdeveloped set of tools to help them navigate the road. This scenario offers a unique set of challenges as well as a rich opportunity to improve. This thesis describes the design process used to develop a polysensory haptic system, built into a motorcycle helmet that could effectively warn drivers when they are in imminent danger of collision, and help them to keep their eyes on the road when navigating.
