MSC Technologies supports Kyocera's Haptivity touch feeling technology for touchscreens

MSC Technologies supports Kyocera's Haptivity touch feeling technology for touchscree (PresseBox) (Stutensee, ) MSC Technologies, a business unit of Avnet, Inc. (NYSE: AVT), supports the market introduction of Kyocera’s newly patented touch feeling technology called 'Haptivity'. The virtual reality technology enables a real touch feeling through mechanical feedback of a user interface or a display screen.

The operating safety of display systems can be increased significantly with Haptivity technology, because the touch of a button is not only registered visually, but also a mechanical feedback of the Human Machine Interface (HMI) system occurs. The new touch feeling technology is interesting for a broad range of applications such as industrial and consumer equipment or in the automotive industry.

With Kyocera’s Haptivity technology, the Pacini nerve in the finger is being stimulated to create the feeling in the brain of having pressed a real mechanical button. The impression of having pressed a real button is composed of the combination of various pressure feelings in the finger. If a specific, programmable trigger value of the pressure is exceeded when pressing the virtual button, the touched surface starts to vibrate, whereby the second phase of the switching process is simulated.

The pressure detection and the resulting vibration inducement of the surface create the feeling of pushing a button or an increment wheel, etc., although the actual mechanical movement only occurs in the micrometer range. Various touch effects can be created and controlled by corresponding programming of the device software. As a result, the design of a wide range of individual display systems is possible.

The first products with Kyocera’s patented touch feeling technology will be presented over the course of this year.
