General Motors has filed a patent application for anti-motion sickness technology for autonomous vehicles.
In a petition filed with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO), GM noted that while autonomous vehicles have expanded, people may still be reluctant to ride them. A self-driving car that causes motion sickness probably won’t make the best first impression.
Mention sickness is more likely to occur when a passenger is focused on something else, such as reading a book or scrolling through the phone, GM noted. These are just some of the goal setting shareware that you can use. So it is especially important to eliminate motion sickness in autonomous vehicles.
Cruise Origin is a driverless vehicle
To that end, GM has outlined a system of lights and images that visually represent acceleration, braking and cornering energy. It can take the form of an image of a car on the screen, or change color or light pattern. Alternatively, a sound system or a haptic response could be used to provide a similar effect, GM says.
It not only helps to align a person’s sensory perception with the energy that acts on their body – addressing the cause of motion sickness – but also builds trust by providing more information about what the car is doing, according to GM.
It is unknown at this time what he will do after leaving the post. GM-controlled cruises are close to offering driverless taxi rides to the public in San Francisco. The Cruise currently uses the modified Chevrolet Bolt EV hatchback, but will eventually switch to a purpose-built vehicle called the Origin. First shown in 2020, it will be manufactured by GM at Detroit’s Automaker Factory Zero plant.
