Abstract

In this study, we propose a method of displaying unaware-usage haptic sensation of navigation. People view a map when they visit an unfamiliar place, but when they are taken away their eyes from the map, their attention is diverted and margin of the heart. However, when we are relaxed and do not worry about getting lost, we can discover the intrinsic beauty of the unfamiliar land. Therefore, we have focused on the sense of touch and ensured security by using a support such as a wall or a handrail in the streets, along with the sense of touch. Therefore, we propose a haptic navigation system to release human eyes from the requirement of constantly looking into a map in order to enhance the experience of our daily walk or sightseeing.
