Virtual Prototyping of Tactile Displays (PROTOTOUCH)

Start date: May 1, 2013, End date: Apr 30, 2017,

"It is estimated that touch screen module revenues will reach $23.9 billion by 2017. These user interfaces have become one of the most common input devices for digital media, e.g. in mobile phones and computers. Current devices incorporate relatively primitive vibrotactile haptic-feedback. The aim of PROTOTOUCH is to develop tactile displays with high fidelity haptic recognition, so that buttons w ...
