Vibrating Gas Pedals Help Drivers React Intuitively
The haptic feedback driving system that saves fuel consumption
Bosch has designed an active gas pedal that helps drivers make more informed choices through haptic feedback. This new kind of interaction between the vehicle and the driver is based on data connection technology that continuously provides information from various sources.
Signals are delivered to drivers, prompting them to push down or ease off, which allows them to intuitively correct driving behavior. Knocking, vibration, or counterpressure from the gas pedal means drivers don’t need to glance at the cockpit display and they feel more confident in different traffic situations.
