Abstract

This paper presents results of a basic study on tactile navigation using vibration motors. It includes studies about appropriate position finding for information presentation navigation that used a vibration motor. We examined skin vibration and vibration strength generated by a vibration motor by physical measurement. Section 1 discusses the need for a new car navigation device that meets the needs of those with hearing problems. Section 2 discusses three experiments for measuring (1) skin hardness, (2) vibration, and (3) discrimination threshold. Section 3 discuss results of experiments.
