Research and Markets: Next Generation Haptics on Mobile Devices: Market Analysis and Forecasts

Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/9nkdp9/next_generation) has announced the addition of the "Next Generation Haptics on Mobile Devices: Market Analysis and Forecasts" report to their offering.

Haptics is the science of applying tactile sensations when interacting with appliances, whether smartphones or industrial controls, and ranging from simple vibrations when a handset is turned on, to complex effects used in gaming. A haptics system simulates different surfaces by varying the shape, frequency, amplitude, duration and direction of a vibration, which is detected by sensors in human fingers. It may also perform sensing functions, as well as actuating functions.

When coupled with a display, audio system and input devices, this creates a wide range of interactive effects. There has been rising use of haptics in mobile devices, such as smartphones and tablets, to make experiences and interactions more realistic and responsive. The technology will be increasingly important to handset vendors as they seek to differentiate their products and user experiences.
