Immersion Reaches 3,500 Issued and Pending Haptics Patents
Immersion’s extensive background includes 25 years of experience in haptic R&D, UX design, prototyping, mechanical design, and integration. The company works with many of the world’s leading device makers and system integrators, designers, and developers to create a digital world, rich with touch experiences.
Immersion’s technology makes the human-to-machine interface more intuitive, immersive, and powerful in applications and devices spanning numerous industries including mobile, automotive, gaming, AR/VR, and wearables. In mobile, haptics effectively simulates real-world experiences on a handheld device for people on the go. For instance, a smartphone user can sense rain falling when checking the forecast on a weather app or feel shutter clicks when using the device’s camera function. In automotive, the sense of touch enhances in-vehicle interfaces such as entertainment, navigation, and climate control, providing drivers with a more instinctive experience. Drivers can feel the physical sensation of buttons on their touchscreens, reducing distraction by keeping their eyes on the road.
“As the adoption of haptics becomes more widespread across industries, we are continually innovating and expanding our portfolio to deliver value for our customers,” said Ramzi Haidamus, Immersion’s CEO. “I am proud of our employees, who create technology that makes people’s digital lives more personal, vivid, and meaningful through the power of touch.”
Immersion enables its customers and partners to incorporate the value of touch into their products by providing reference hardware and software solutions, as well as expert integration support along the entire touch technology stack, from actuator selection to experience design. These technologies are licensed under the TouchSense® brand, which organizes Immersion’s innovations into creation tools, haptic effect encoding and haptic effect rendering. Through the continual updates of TouchSense technologies, customers and partners have access to the latest haptic features and know-how for automotive, gaming, wearables, and mobile use cases.
