Motion Sickness Relief Scent Cartridges
For mobility markets, the use of specifically formulated scents based on natural and safe ingredients are released with a precision dry-air diffuser to provide passengers with relief of motion sickness in mild to moderate cases, both during and after their ride.
Motion sickness is expected to be more of an issue in ride-sharing and self-driving vehicles than in conventional vehicles. The reason behind this is based on three specific contributing factors: conflict between vestibular and visual inputs, inability to anticipate the direction of motion, and lack of control over the direction of motion are known to be elevated in self-driving vehicles. Additionally, the propensity to look down at a phone, tablet or other screen adds to the sensation.
By combining ingredients that are known to reduce the effects of motion sickness into a special scent formula that is released using a precision dry-air mobility diffusion system, Inhalio can reduce the number of motion sickness incidents, as well as improve recovery times for passengers. The company’s Motion Sickness Relief Solution has been tested in multiple live-course scenarios and found to reduce or eliminate, in mild-to-moderate cases, the effects of motion sickness for passengers.
It is expected that approximately thirty-three percent (33%) of all people will experience motion sickness in mild circumstances or inside an autonomous vehicle, according to The University of Michigan’s Transportation Research Institute. The study also revealed that unchecked, twenty-two percent (22%) would actually become physically ill (vomit). The report’s finding: Self-Driving Cars Will Cause Motion Sickness ‘Often’ to ‘Always’. The frequency and severity of motion sickness is influenced by the activity that one would be involved in instead of driving.
