Immersion Signs LG Electronics to a Multi-Year Renewal License for TouchSense® Software
License to the HD haptic software enables the phone maker to expand the use of touch effects throughout its mobile apps in all LG phones
Haptics is now a presumed feature in smartphones, used to turn flat surface areas into buttons as well as enhance device functionality and user experience. Innovations in mobile haptic use cases will continue to improve people’s interactions with their digital devices, making them more intuitive to use.
TouchSense software makes it easy to program haptic effects for basic and intricate use cases that require high fidelity haptic rendering to feel real. The software optimizes haptic system performance to deliver high-quality effects. It enables phone makers to turn around effects in a shortened timeframe and add enhancements to their phones as they are being readied for the market and with software updates.
“The LG brand is innovative, forward-thinking, and synonymous with high-quality products,” said
Immersion’s haptic technology enables device manufacturers to simulate the experiences of the real world, digitally. With TouchSense software, device manufacturers can design high-quality tactile effects that enhance the user experience for mobile apps and device UI.
The terms of the deal between Immersion and LG Electronics are confidential; however, the license agreement falls in line with Immersion’s per-unit royalty model, quarterly payments, and revenue recognition.
