The driver is easy to hear it exclusively while the person sitting in the front passenger seat can not hear it. Tachi-S said a warning sound from the driving assistance system resonates on the inside of the car without disturbing passenger comfort.

The vibrator is embedded beneath the surface of the seat and will vibrate to alert the driver of potential hazards. If the vehicle is off the track and more inclined to the right then the right side of the seat surface vibrates to alert the driver.
