Vibromotors and GPS turn by turn navigation Answered

Hello, for one of my university courses I have to develop a prototype that give turn by turn signals to a person by means of vibromotors. First I would like to say that my background is mechanical and I have no idea whatsoever of electronics or software. My full Idea (Don't know if feasable) is to use the turn by turn information of a smatphone navigator that uses GPS (like the one of google maps) to activate one of two vibromotors, there would be one vibromotor on the right arm and the other on the left, if a next turn is needed to be made (info from the navigator) a signal will be send to the the motor on the left arm, It will vibrate and let the user know that this next turn needs to be done. I need urgent help since I don't know which components I may need and how to develop the software or anything I will appreciate any hint.

Well, ask your professor or teacher - or next time take a course that suits your skills ;)
As for school kids, students are the same: Do your own research, get the stuff you need, get it going - and if by then you still have a little problem someone might help out here.
Might a be a good idea to check if you change courses, maybe knitting or cooking is better? ;)
