TouchSense Lite is a turn-key, cost-efficient solution enabling standard quality haptics leveraging a pre-designed library of tactile effects. This offering is easier to integrate as it is implemented at a higher level of the software stack and packages predefined built-in effect sets tuned for a range of common hardware configurations in the mobile market. Integration guidelines and haptic design best practices are also provided in the product package to help OEMs facilitate implementation.
This agreement for TouchSense Lite builds on a previous license agreement formed two years ago between the companies. In 2015, Kyocera signed a multi-year worldwide license in the mobile market for Immersion's TouchSense® software technology as well as its IP.
Immersion's TouchSense technology enables mobile products to engage users' sense of touch by incorporating high-quality tactile effects and feedback in user interfaces and applications to simulate the connected experiences of the real world.
"We are pleased to see Kyocera become our easy-to-integrate TouchSense
Lite licensee," said
In 2016, Kyocera released the DuraForce XD Android smartphone with Immersion's TouchSense technology.
