Motion sickness can occur when using a device with a screen in a moving vehicle when rapid or significant changes in direction or speed take place. Motion sickness can potentially be alleviated by breaking focus on the screen at the onset of sickness and looking elsewhere, e.g., out of a window. This disclosure describes techniques to alleviate motion sickness by monitoring vehicular velocity and route, with user permission. When a sudden or substantial change in speed and/or direction is detected or shortly anticipated, a notification is provided to the user that they should shift focus from the screen to the road to avoid motion sickness.
