I am so lucky that what I have chosen to study in college is Industrial Design. Design gave me a stage to show myself in a free way. When doing the project, although it won’t be so easy at all, I enjoy the process. No matter how hard the process is, when see the perfect result, it always give me more confidece in the end. In the process, we always have trouble of the project, in the same time, we doubt ourself as well. But in the end, when seeing the final and best solution of product, we finally can get a perfect result and the best defination of ourself. I think it’s what the design give me.

Sensory Guide Designer : Ni -Feng Liu , Ju-Ming Huang Sensory Guide is a steering wheel which could navigate drivers the right direction with vibration intuitively. With it, the driver could safely on the right direction and avoid dangers arise from distraction of looking at the navigator or mistook in left and right.

It could properly navigate the direction with vibration before drivers make a turn, even if the steering wheel is rotated at any angle. 2012 - YSED 9th - Nominated
Increase the danger arise from distraction of looking on the navigator.
Using vibration to navigate, the driver can concentrate on the road directly without looking at the navigator.
Turn RIGHT Turn RIGHT
People who canâ€™t distinguish left and right would increase the danger even you have the navigator.
It could also let the people who cannot 09 distinguish between left and right, know which direction is correct.
Complicated delivering way of traditional navigation The delivering way of the traditional navigation is too comlicated for the driver. The driver would consume more his concentration to understand the complicated information.
Combine the PND and steering wheel Combine the PND and steering wheel. Reduce more information to let driver could use a easier way to understand the information and concentrate on the road.
A more clear navigation replace the traditional navigation The traditional navigation was popular. But it was discovered some defects. The Sensory Guide would develop a new navigation system to replace the traditional navigation.
Somatosensory-guide steering wheel By using vibration, the driver could concentrate on the road without staring at the navigator and also let people who canâ€™t distinguish left and right follow the instruction of the navigator.
Touch screen& car horn Touch screen could remind drivers the destination, journey time, the name of destination and steering wheel remains the original function of car horn.
Built-in gyroscopes Ensure the steering wheel could properly navigate the driver with vibration when it was rotated.
Process First of all, we using the electronic component of vibration to creat the vibrate feeling. Trying the position of the vibrate component when user can touch it accurately. Using the bearing to rotate the steering wheel soomthly. In the end, combine all the component together. 12 13
