Touch feedback technology makes it safer for drivers to operate a vehicle’s HMI and reduces driver distraction. As the first licensee of Active Sensing technology, Alps Alpine can provide advanced realistic touch feedback solutions to automotive HMI applications for buttons, dials, switches and textures in suspended touch displays and surfaces. With higher fidelity haptics, automakers can introduce advanced features and continue to evolve the user experience in the car.
Active Sensing technology is an advancement beyond standard haptic software technologies. It provides real-time control over actuator vibrations enabling clean, crisp and instant responses to a user’s interaction. It uses a robust algorithm to react to the actuator’s current state, making command decisions every sub-millisecond to produce high-fidelity haptic effects.
“We received positive feedback from our customers at CES 2020 on the product demo that combined Immersion’s Active Sensing technology and Alps Alpine’s actuators and advanced touch surface technologies,” said
“This new phase of technology collaboration and product license with Alps Alpine signifies an important milestone for Active Sensing technology,” said
This licensing agreement builds upon a long-standing collaboration between Immersion and Alps Alpine to jointly develop and co-market new haptic solutions.
