  • ruttelflug a wrist worn sensing device for tactile vertical velocity perception in 3d space
    International Symposium on Wearable Computers, 2016
    Co-Authors: Erik Pescara, Michael Beigl, Matthias Budde

    Abstract:

    Engine-less flight like Paragliding or Hang Gliding heavily relies on leveraging thermals to prolong the experience. At the same time, descending Air Currents or abnormal weather conditions potentially lead to extreme sink or lift, endangering the pilots. So-called variometers measure the vertical velocity and use auditory and visual encoding to inform pilots of their movement. However, this is often perceived as intrusive, as the loud sound of the devices can spoil flying experience or distract the pilot, especially during takeoff and landing. Vibrotactile cues offer an alternative to communicate velocity changes unobtrusively. This paper presents RuttelFlug, a wrist-worn tactile variometer. We conducted initially a formative study to explore suitable vibration patterns that can clearly be distinguished by users. The system was implemented and evaluated in-flight by experienced paraglider pilots, who rated the system as attractive and unobtrusive.
