im Rahmen seiner beabsichtigten Dissertation einen Vortrag mit dem Titel
Supporting route guidance of car drivers with a tactile display on urban roads
Der Vortrag findet im OFFIS, Escherweg 2, Konferenzraum F02 statt.
Following a route is an essential driving task. Conventional car navigation systems are designed to provide turn-
by-turn route guidance to the driver. Visual and auditory displays successfully complement each other in present-
ing route information in conventional car navigation systems. However, a car navigation system increases the de-
mand on the driver's visual and acoustic attention and can distract drivers from the primary task of driving, such
as maneuvering the car or observing the traffic. The driver performs many primary and secondary tasks on visual
and auditory displays increasing the mental workload, which is harmful for the safety of driving.
Tactile user interfaces can provide an alternative way to display spatial information in the car. Nevertheless, how
exactly information should be presented in a vibro-tactile way is rarely explored. Tactile parameters need to be
