Design of Intelligent Obstacle Avoidance Gloves Based on Tactile Channel

Conference paper
Part of the Advances in Intelligent Systems and Computing book series (AISC, volume 795)


Nowadays there is a global concern with driving safety issues. This article proposes a system based on tactile cues, designed to help drivers find obstacles while driving and achieve safe driving. The feature of this system compared to other systems is that it uses a tactile perception and reminding method that has not been used in the previous designs of the same type to build a simple tactile display to prompt the user. In addition, a user use test was performed for the vibration mode proposed in this issue, and the accuracy and naturalness of the system were evaluated by the detection of the user’s use of sensations. At the same time, the design is completely independent of the vehicle’s system. It can be installed not only on bicycles and motor vehicles, but also on special vehicles such as disabled bicycles and urban sweepers.
