  • Patent number: 11120674
    Abstract: There is provided an information processing apparatus, an information processing method, and a program for performing more appropriate haptic presentations. The information processing apparatus includes a signal processing section configured such that in a case where the presentation timing of a first presentation with haptic sensation based on first data overlaps with the presentation timing of a second presentation with either haptic sensation or a sound based on second data, the signal processing section generates a haptic signal for controlling a haptic presentation device performing at least the first presentation based on sensory characteristic data regarding the haptic sensation and on the first data in such a manner that a combined sensory effect on a user receiving both the first presentation and the second presentation becomes an effect merging a first sensory effect of the first presentation with a second sensory effect of the second presentation.
