CREATING HOLISTIC HMI SOLUTIONS WITH A SPECIAL FOCUS ON HAPTIC TECHNOLOGIES
Intuitive and immersive user interfaces need to address our visual, auditory, and tactile senses. This might sound obvious but is in reality a goal that is rarely achieved. The art in HMI design lies in the combination of various solutions and technologies. Its hardest challenge, however, is getting them to work together.
Integrating different technologies into one product is a complex and expensive task – often resulting in a compromise of cost-efficiency and user experience. In addition, the UX requirements of today are many-faceted and rapidly changing. This is especially true when it comes to the meaningful integration of our tactile senses. With many technologies on the rise, smart haptics design is still unfamiliar territory for many.
To address this challenge, the Haptics Alliance brings its members together to co-develop smart HMI solutions that go beyond the silos of individual technologies – creating holistic UI systems with a special focus on next-level haptic technologies.
