  • Publication number: 20170220115
    Abstract: A system that produces a dynamic haptic effect and generates a drive signal that includes a gesture signal and a real or virtual device sensor signal. The haptic effect is modified dynamically based on both the gesture signal and the real or virtual device sensor signal such as from an accelerometer or gyroscope, or by a signal created from processing data such as still images, video or sound. The haptic effect may optionally be modified dynamically by using the gesture signal and the real or virtual device sensor signal and a physical model, or may optionally be applied concurrently to multiple devices which are connected via a communication link. The haptic effect may optionally be encoded into a data file on a first device. The data file is then communicated to a second device and the haptic effect is read from the data file and applied to the second device.

  • Patent number: 8981915
    Abstract: A system that produces a haptic effect and generates a drive signal that includes at least two haptic effect signals each having a priority level. The haptic effect is a combination of the haptic effect signals and priority levels. The haptic effect may optionally be a combination of the two haptic effect signals if the priority levels are the same, otherwise only the haptic effect signal with the highest priority is used. The frequency of haptic notifications may also be used to generate a drive signal using foreground and background haptic effect channels depending on whether the frequency ratio exceeds a foreground haptic effect threshold.

  • Publication number: 20130311881
    Abstract: Systems and methods for haptically enabled metadata are disclosed. One disclosed embodiment of a method comprises receiving, by an electronic device, an electronic list corresponding to a plurality of data items. The method further comprises analyzing, by the electronic device, metadata within the electronic list to determine a haptic effect associated with a first data item in the plurality of data items. The method further comprises generating a signal, the signal being generated when information corresponding to the first data item is initially displayed on a display associated with the electronic device, the signal configured to cause the haptic effect. The method further comprises outputting the signal.
