Tangible Driving Safety

The Inumflis system was designed to work in tandem with existing driver protection features like HUD and  radar object sensors. In addition to the visual or audio indication of surrounding object detection, the system communicates with the user by sending pneumatic pulses to the steering wheel grips. The user can not only see and hear information about their surroundings, but actually FEEL the indication as a reinforcement for safe driving.

Communication to the user is achieved by inflating the air cushions in a certain rhythm and intensity, corresponding with the speed and distance of an approaching vehicle. When a distant object is detected, the pulse will start with a low rate and intensify gradually as the object approaches.
