AT&T Vibrating Steering Wheel Keeps Drivers Focused On The Road
Haptic feedback might be able to reduce accidents caused by in-car distractions.
AT&T Lab hopes to reduce accidents caused by distracted drivers by inventing a steering wheel that provides haptic feedback. The steering wheel is equipped with 20 actuators that can vibrate in various patterns. When it sends vibrations in a clockwise direction, it lets the driver know to turn right; while vibrating anti-clockwise suggests to turn left.
