BuzzWear: alert perception in wearable tactile displays on the wrist

  title={BuzzWear: alert perception in wearable tactile displays on the wrist},
  author={Seungyon Claire Lee and Thad Starner},
We present two experiments to evaluate wrist-worn wearable tactile displays (WTDs) that provide easy to perceive alerts for on-the-go users. The first experiment (2304 trials, 12 participants) focuses on the perception sensitivity of tactile patterns and reveals that people discriminate our 24 tactile patterns with up to 99% accuracy after 40 minutes of training. Among the four parameters (intensity, starting point, temporal pattern, and direction) that vary in the 24 patterns, intensity is the… CONTINUE READING
