Ultrahaptics’ (Bristol, England) development platform allows companies looking to evolve innovative control solutions a route to evaluate and appreciate the benefits of gesture controls enhanced by tactile feedback sensations. The self-contained, plug-and-play UHDK5 TOUCH provides a complete hardware and software package with an architecture that can readily be embedded in product designs, from prototypes through to volume production. With its patented core technology, Ultrahaptics uses ultrasound to provide a unique touch sensation, enabling users to ‘feel’ virtual buttons, switches, dials and other objects in mid-air. Touchless controls are hygienic for use in industrial environments, while their use for automotive infotainment and dashboard functions enhances safety, allowing drivers to keep their eyes on the road.
