VibroTac – a new dimension of perception. The German Aerospace Center and SENSODRIVE are pursuing the common objective of establishing vibrotactile feedback systems in industry, in entertainment as well as in medical technology.VibroTac uses the fact that vibrations can also be very well perceived on skin despite an acoustic and visual overstimulus. The patented system produces vibration patterns via several elastically connected motors. These patterns can be clearly interpreted by its user. Vibro Tac is controlled by means of a wireless connected console terminal. The cordless system is flexible and comfortable to wear. Numerous studies have impressively proven its effectiveness for air traffic controllers and the visually impaired among others.
