Development of ‘Motion-Sensor Moustick’ Controller and A Study of Usability Improvement While Driving 2012-01-0038
This ‘Motion-Sensor Moustick’ is a sort of new concept control device as if a combination of PC mouse and joystick. It has three simple buttons and a haptic wheel designed for a faster and easier use to learn the vehicle infotainment functions. In addition it has a motion sensor to call a menu via hand approach to change media channels or to display status with just a driver's hand motion within a certain distance. Also this development includes a new concept GUI(graphical user interface) which is compatible with the ‘Moustick’ device. This development could be very helpful to use a car infotainment system.
