Abstract: Research has shown that two popular types of wearable tactile displays, a back array and a waist belt, have successfully aided pedestrian navigation. Each type has its proponents and each has been reported as successful in experimental trials. However, it is not clear which of the two is more effective for tactile-based navigation. In this short paper, we summarise the results from a direct experimental comparison of the back array and waist belt approaches. Results indicated that the tactile belt allowed participants to perform significantly faster and more accurately than the tactile back array.
