Haptics System View: Click to enlarge

Immersion’s TouchSense 5000 solution takes haptics to a new level of fidelity. The solution leverages high fidelity actuators and offer manufacturers and designers:

Powerful and Crisp Haptic Effects 

  • Wide haptic bandwith (1 - 350 Hz) – increased range, strength and precision
  • Superior effects isolation – actuator can be mounted to touchscreen or housing
  • HD Haptic Synthesizer – converts sampled or captured waveforms into compelling effects
  • Instantaneous Touch Feedback – low-latency design can reduce haptic lag time below human perception
  • Quiet Haptics – innovative electro-mechanical reference design and signal control algorithms can reduce noise below audible; effects operate almost silently
  • Designed to play an unlimited number of haptic effects for multiple applications
  • The ability to mimic almost any measurable haptic event and download haptic-enabled media and applications
  • All the features of TS 4000, including support of 16 distinct actuators

Easy to Integrate Haptics

  • Great flexibility in piezo location with a variety of mechanical mounting options available
  • No conventional motor necessary, improving mechanical resilience
  • TouchSense Studio tool enables easy design and integration of haptic effects

Fully Programmable Haptic Platform

  • Haptic effects for the 5000 player are created using the TouchSense SDK – 5000 Series. Haptic effects can be adjusted by the target product’s applications (for example, by a game).
  • Developer’s support via Immersion’s TouchSense Studio

Our TouchSense System 5000 Series solution includes:

A TouchSense 5000 Player: Software embedded in the phone that controls an actuator to play haptic effects which consists of:

  • API – TouchSense effects management software used by applications
  • Kernel – algorithms and drivers that produce and control the full range of TouchSense effects
  • Bridge Software – software that connects a target product with the TouchSense Studio – development tool, allowing fast and efficient design and real-time playback of TouchSense effects
  • Integration guidelines (Mechanical, electrical & software) – 5000 Series
