  • Publication number: 20190369734
    Abstract: A system is provided for generating variable haptic feedback. The system comprises a first haptic feedback device configured to generate haptic feedback according to a received output signal, an input device configured to receive instructions from a remote source, the instructions comprising a haptic feedback output identifier, and a memory device for storing a plurality of haptic feedback profiles, the haptic feedback profiles defining unique haptic feedback patterns characterized at least by a duration and intensity of feedback to be generated by the first haptic feedback device, and said haptic feedback profiles being associated with a haptic feedback output identifier. The system also includes a processor configured to generate and transmit an output signal to the first haptic feedback device according to a haptic feedback profile associated with a received haptic feedback output identifier, said output signal comprising a haptic feedback pattern defined by said haptic feedback profile.
