Cadillac Haptic Safety Seat Alert

New Technology Helps Drivers Steer Clear of Danger

Did you ever get behind the wheel a little sleepy and wish you could find a way to keep yourself awake while driving?

Well, now there is new technology available in some luxury automobiles that acts as a physical reminder as opposed to a sound reminder. It alerts you if you are about to veer out of a lane, a car is in your blind spot, or you are about to hit someone head-on. The safety alert seat uses vibrations to communicate direction of a crash threat and works very similar to somebody tapping on your shoulder.

We have video and soundbites detailing how this new technology works and how it can make drivers safer in the future.
