A vibrotactile display for use in navigation has been designed and evaluated. The arm and the torso, which offer relatively large and flat surface areas, were chosen as locations for the displays. The ability of subjects to identify patterns of vibrotactile stimulation on the arm and torso was tested in a series of experiments using the vibrotactile(More)
Despite the increased interest from educators to make science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) education more connected and integrated, there is little research on how to best do it. Although some studies suggest that integrated STEM education can have a positive impact on student learning outcomes, the studies contain some gaps and(More)

ABSTRACT The current understanding of the dynamics of the human head, and the demands placed on its control and stability systems, is based largely on the results of experiments conducted in(More)
The posture of the head and neck is critical for predicting and assessing the risk of injury during high accelerations, such as those arising during motor accidents or in collision sports. Current knowledge suggests that the head's range-of-motion (ROM) and the torque-generating capability of neck muscles are both dependent and affected by head posture. A(More)
