Despite recent developments in information technologies and user interfaces for the automotive field, the affective aspects of the driving experience are still under-explored. Advancements in sensing technologies make it possible to measure physiological data in the car environment, opening up the possibility of harnessing such data for just-in-time feedback to drivers.
We present designs and techniques for measuring breathing patterns and inducing behavior change in the driver through shape-changing materials and visual feedback, thereby providing increased safety and improved user experience.
This work presents a non-invasive sensor-powered system for changing the behavior of a car driver through tactile and visual feedback that influence the respiratory patterns, and thus inducing change in the driver’s arousal state.
