Stewart II


Haptic interface for a self driving car

Stewart II is a tactile interface between a passenger and his or her autonomous car. The device provides continual haptic and visual updates on the car’s intended and upcoming movements. If the passenger disagrees with the automated decision, he or she can use the Stewart II device to change the car’s course. Occupying a space between user and machine-operated, the Stewart II rethinks the shift to automated control.
