Lynette Jones of MIT created an array that accurately tracks vibrations through skin in three dimensions.
A senior research scientist at MIT's Department of Mechanical Engineering and a designer of wearable tactile displays, Lynette Jones, has created an array that accurately tracks vibrations through skin in three dimensions. The array contains miniature accelerometers and pancake motors - a type of vibrating motor which is currently used in cellphones ... Jones stated there are many potential applications for these types of tactile displays, such as aiding drivers or joggers, directing firefighters through building or helping emergency workers navigate through a disaster site.

Zee News - Vibrating vests to warn soldiers of impending danger

"They are interested in a way to communicate simple commands in situations when the hands are doing other things, or radios can`t be used," said Lynette Jones, the MIT engineer leading the project.

Along with colleagues Brett Lockyer and Erin Piateski, Jones has been testing different symbols on volunteers wearing the vest.
"We have created 15 with very high recognition," Jones said, adding that eight of the symbols are derived from hand signals already used by the US military.
"They communicate things like stop, look left, run, proceed faster or proceed slower.When four corners of the array vibrate, for example, this means stop.And a vibrating column, moving from one side to the other, means turn left or right," Jones added.
"This is best suited to command-based situations like the military or fire-fighters," said Jones.
"It could also be used to direct blind people around a city, but because their path is less defined, that would be more difficult," he added.
According to Jones, the vest can operate continuously for around five hours, which should allow it to function for several days under normal conditions, as messages would not be relayed continuously.
