Advantages of Piezoelectric Actuators in Haptic Feedback
Date:7/31/2013

ate into any application.

Midé first started developing its haptic feedback actuators when it won a DARPA contract to develop a tactile actuator (tactor) for the purpose of supporting communication between land based soldiers in degraded audio and visual sensory environments. The solution was a stand-alone unit that can communicate independently, or be part of a body worn array of tactors.

Following the success of the tactor development, Midé is now launching its piezoelectric haptic actuators into the broader, but specialized, bio-medical, electronic gaming, and industrial markets.

Midé also offers the SHIVR HEK-200 Multi-Actuation Evaluation Kit; a complete kit which drives its piezoelectric haptic actuator in three different scenarios – direct actuation, bonded actuation and inertial actuation. The kit generates four pre-written haptic patterns and provides an optional user input.

Jared Keegan, a Senior Engineer at Midé and the SHIVR product manager stated, “We are very excited about the response we’ve already received regarding our haptic feedback evaluation kit. It’s an educational tool that allows users to really get a feel for the different types of haptic feedback scenarios piezos are able to offer.”

If you’d like more information about this topic, please visit our website (http://www.mide.com), or to schedule an interview with Jared Keegan, please call Jared at the contact information provided.
