Abstract

In this paper, we propose a device that indicates the direction to evacuate. Our proposed system, which would present the direction through the tactile sensation of the head, could be used in no visibility environment such as filled smoke. This paper describes a feasibility of our proposed system and indicates problems to be solved.
