Haptic Technology PPT

What is Haptic Technology?


Haptic technology, or haptics, is a tactile feedback technology which takes advantage of the sense of touch by applying forces, vibrations, or motions to the user. The word haptic, from the Greek word haptikos, means pertaining to the sense of touch and comes from the Greek verb haptesthai, meaning to contact or to touch.

Haptics is enabled by actuators that apply forces to the skin for touch feedback, and controllers. The actuator provides mechanical motion in response to an electrical stimulus. 

Generation of haptic


  • First generation – use of electromagnetic technologies which produce a limited range of sensations
  • Second generation - touch-coordinate specific responses allowing the haptic effects to be localized to the position on a screen or touch panel, rather than the whole device
  • The third generation - delivers both touch-coordinate specific responses and customizable haptic effects
  • Fourth generation - pressure sensitivity, i.e. how hard you press on a flat surface can affect the response
Touch plays a huge role in the way we perceive our surroundings and also how we interact with them. Haptics technologies have come a long way in bringing this technology into reality. Currently, it is limited to consumers. Future generations of mobile devices and game console accessories will implement more haptic feedback. Increasing applications of haptics the cost of the haptic devices will drop in future. This technology brings us one step closer to the virtual world. Haptic Technology PPT explains the tactile feedback technology which takes advantage of the sense of touch by applying forces, vibrations, or motions to the user.
