Touch Haptics

Haptic reference system

The TouchFeel-Box makes it possible – within the scope of quality assurance of materials – to check the tactile properties of the surface.

With the help of the TouchFeel-Box, the touch feeling can be broken down into different impressions and assigned to haptic descriptors. The relevance of the haptic descriptors has been determined by numerous studies.

Measuring device for contact temperature

By knowing the absolute values of the haptic touch temperature, the perceived quality can be influenced. This is possible with the HapTemp by a simple and fast measurement.

Therefore, studies with distorted results are no longer necessary. The measurement result is independent of transparency, gloss or color of the materials. HapTemp generates an absolute value in the Sensotact® scale. This scale correlates with the human sensation of the touch temperature.
