  • Publication number: 20190354187
    Abstract: One embodiment provides a multi-directional actuating module capable of moving in various directions and capable of delivering various tactile senses such as knocking or rubbing as well as vibration by controlling at least one of the intensity, direction or frequency of a magnetic field generation unit. Further, the multidirectional actuating module according to one embodiment may comprise: a moving body capable of moving in at least two or more axial directions by means of an external magnetic field; a support for supporting the moving body so as to be movable; and at least two or more magnetic field generation units which are in the form of a coil to generate the magnetic field.
