In recent years, many new technologies have been developed to enhance the perceptual and intellectual abilities of the user. Some examples are: improving the user's memory and attention, creating a new sensory modality to perceive the magnetic north, and sharpening the user's aesthetic and moral perceptions. Integrating all these approaches, a long-term goal of this research is to develop a generally applicable framework for sense enhancement by cognitive technologies. As the first step to realizing this vision, this study project aims to develop a sense enhancement prototype to create a new sensory modality to perceive safety and evaluate its cognitive impact on the users. This project will be conducted within the scope of a bilateral exchange-of-scientists program with Prof. Dr. Bipin Indurkhya and Prof. Dr. Arthur Gunia from Jagiellonian University Krakow. Our goal is to create awareness for the bike rider by incorporating objects and people in the vicinity. This awareness, produced by perceptual enhancement technologies, would create a new sense for the rider – the safety sense.
