Bosch plans to incorporate Immersion’s haptics technology in automotive applications.
Immersion Corp., a developer and licensor of touch feedback technology, has signed a multi-year license agreement with Robert Bosch Car Multimedia GmbH, a subsidiary of Robert Bosch GmbH. The deal provides Bosch with access to Immersion’s patented haptic technology for use in its automotive solutions.
Immersion’s TouchSense technology enhances in-vehicle interfaces and applications. Increasingly, haptics – the study or use of tactile sensations and the sense of touch as a method of interacting with computers and electronic devices – is being designed into automotive applications as more and more vehicles incorporate high-quality tactile effects for operations such as entertainment, navigation and climate control.
