Haptics In Automotive

Haptics use tactile interfaces (for example, steering wheels and seats) to provide touch or force feedback as part of the user interface (UI) in vehicles (for example, a vibrating seat to inform driver of a pedestrian about to cross the street). Haptic technology has the potential to add new forms of driver communication to a vehicle, and to improve the overall usability of vehicles and their information applications.
