Hypotheses and Research Questions
The focus of this research work is on automotive interfaces and in-vehicle interaction. Out of the five human senses vision, audition, tactition, olfaction and gustation, the last two (smell and taste) provide only marginal contributions to Driver-Vehicle Interaction. Of the remaining three, the modalities vision and hearing are highly stressed in today's human-machine interfaces – the utilization of the sense of touch is relatively uncommon and originally emerged from communication systems for the visually or hearing impaired , such as “Braille” or “Tadoma” (see appendix E: “Alphabets Related to Touch”). Further potential can be seen in the class of physiological senses, for example in the vestibular sensory system (also known as balance).
