Ultrahaptics Limited Key Developments

Ultrahaptics Introduces a Development Kit for Evaluation and Prototyping of Mid-air Haptics in Touchless Gesture Controls

Ultrahaptics introduced a development platform that allows companies looking to evolve innovative control solutions a route to easily evaluate and appreciate the benefits of gesture controls enhanced by tactile feedback sensations. The UHDK5 TOUCH Development Kit provides a complete hardware and software package with an architecture that can readily be embedded in product designs, from prototypes right through to volume production. With its patented core technology, Ultrahaptics uses ultrasound to provide a unique touch sensation that can revolutionise the human-machine interface, enabling users to 'feel' virtual buttons, switches, dials and other objects in mid-air. Touchless controls are hygienic for use in medical, industrial and domestic environments, such as hospitals, kitchens and restrooms, while their use for automotive infotainment and dashboard functions enhances safety, allowing drivers to keep their eyes on the road. The disruptive nature of gesture control with haptic feedback, providing two-way communication with devices, also opens up new possibilities in consumer electronics, computing and gaming applications. Ultrahaptics' self-contained plug-and-play UHDK5 TOUCH development kit works straight out of the box and can be up and running in just a few minutes to provide demonstrations that require no technical knowledge from the user.

Ultrahaptics to Support Jaguar Land Rover with Mid-Air Touch

Ultrahaptics has announced that it is supporting Jaguar Land Rover in the investigation of a mid-air touch system for its Predictive Infotainment Screen. With the up-take of touch screens in automobiles, the temptation for the driver to take their eyes off the road increases. Ultrahaptics has developed a technology that uses ultrasound to create feeling in mid-air, known as haptic feedback. Using the Ultrahaptics solution, the driver's hand can be located and tracked as it is moves across the interactive field; the system locks on and creates a physical sensation to indicate connection. The user can feel virtual objects and control switches and buttons, giving the ability to control them in mid-air and receive feedback to confirm their action has been successfully completed.
