Solution against motion sickness in self-driving car

TU Eindhoven

Two Malaysian researchers from the faculty of Industrial Design at the Eindhoven University of Technology, Nidzamuddin Md. Yusof and Juffrizal Karjanto, have found a solution against motion sickness in self-driving cars.

To test this solution, they use the Mobility Lab. This is a specially equipped car that acts as a simulator of a self-driving car.

People who read or watch a video in a self-driving car often suffer from motion sickness. Motion sickness usually arises because passengers in a self-driving car are surprised when the vehicle suddenly accelerates, slows down or stops. When passengers are more aware of the environment and the intentions of the car, the risk of motion sickness decreases.

The researchers have developed four devices that subtly inform the passenger about the position of the car without having to look outside. Two of these devices provide information through visual hints, the other two with vibrations.

Yusof and Karjanto will defend their dissertation on 3 and 4 July at the TU/e.
