Abstract : A close-fitting garment has a pattern of tactile stimulators arranged on its surface. The stimulators can be selectively energized from some remote point in accordance with threats to a person wearing the garment. The stimulators are controlled by a radio receiver fed by a radio transmitter. The relative position of an energized stimulator on the garment is indicative of the relative position of the threat to the wearer. Frequency or amplitude of the stimulator can be used to give information such as threat speed or relative danger. (Author)
