Chevy Safety Alert Seat
It is always a challenge to make vehicles safer and more secure with each new model. Safety it important for every vehicle, no matter the make or model. That’s why automotive companies put so much time and energy in creating safety features that can help drivers and passengers stay safe. This year, Chevrolet is introducing an all new feature with the Chevy safety alert seat. This new technology uses vibration pulses to help alert the driver and avoid crashes.
No matter how cautious of a driver you are, accidents can still happen. That’s why GM has developed this Chevy safety alert seat. This new driver’s seat technology re-creates the sense of touch by using left and/or right “tapping” vibration pulses to direct the driver to the location of the threat. This feature is already available on select 2015 Chevy models including the Silverado, Suburban and Tahoe. This is a particularly useful feature for hearing-impaired drivers. This gives an added alert that can help prevent collisions.
This vibration technique used in the Chevy’s Safety Alert Seat is called haptics. Similar technology is actually used in space and military applications. It can help cut through visual and auditory clutter to reach the driver’s attention in a different manner. This feature works in partnership with the lane departure warning. When the camera detects a vehicle is leaving the lane without an active turn signal in that direction, small motors generate the vibration pulse. This also works with the forward collision alert technology.
This is just one of the many innovative safety features that Chevrolet and GM have developed. It is always exciting to see what the skilled engineers and experts of GM develop for new vehicles.
