Embedded Safety Communication System for Robust Hazard Perception of Individuals in Work Zones

This project developed an Embedded Safety Communication System to help workers in harsh construction environments sense hazards better than they do just through their innate abilities, such as vision and hearing.  Vibrating motors and sense of touch form the heart of this wearable system, and the study identified optimal spacing and configuration for motors embedded in the back of a waist belt worn by a worker.
