Haptics: Actronika leads the way
Actronika provides advanced solutions that enable person-machine communication through touch. Haptic interfaces can in many cases operate on their own or synergistically with visual and auditory displays when the fundamental neural principles of multisensory integration are observed. The idea of using the sense of touch in human-machine interaction is more than one century old. It was popularized by the mobile device industry for notifications through buzzing vibrations, or in simulators for training through force feedback.
How we provide high quality rendering ?
Actronika’s technology provides advanced haptic effects such as the perception of fine textures, depth, or material properties. It employs wide-bandwidth proprietary actuators featuring very short mechanical time constants. These actuators are not only highly effective in haptics but also excel in the auditory range.
The actuators are controlled by a physical and perceptual engine that goes much beyong classic haptic rendering. Actronika’s hardware/firmware system, the Tactronik® engine, is embedded in a module that can be integrated in our clients’ devices. These proprietary hardware and algorithmic components result from many years of scientific research. When appropriate, the Tactronik® engine can also accommodate third-party actuators.
