Title (EN) HAPTIC FEEDBACK CONTROL ASSEMBLY
(FR) ENSEMBLE DE COMMANDE DE RÉTROACTION HAPTIQUE
Abstract:
(EN) A control assembly provides haptic feedback to the user of a device such as a smartphone. The button includes a shape memory alloy actuator which moves the button laterally with respect to the finger press. The actuator can be programmed and controlled to provide a variety of haptic waveforms. The control assembly may be used in combination with a capacitive sensor provides a tactile feedback which is not otherwise present with a capacitive control. The control assembly used in combination with a mechanical control provides a range of haptic waveforms not otherwise possible with a mechanical control. The control assembly can be used in smartphones, wearables, keyboards and other portable electronic devices.
(FR) Ensemble de commande fournissant une rétroaction haptique à l'utilisateur d'un dispositif tel qu'un téléphone intelligent. Le bouton comprend un actionneur en alliage à mémoire de forme qui déplace le bouton latéralement par rapport à la pression du doigt. L'actionneur peut être programmé et commandé pour fournir une variété de formes d'onde haptiques. L'ensemble de commande peut être utilisé en combinaison avec un capteur capacitif qui fournit une rétroaction tactile qui n'est pas par ailleurs présente avec une commande capacitive. L'ensemble de commande utilisé en combinaison avec une commande mécanique fournit une plage de formes d'ondes haptiques qui n'est pas par ailleurs possible avec une commande mécanique. L'ensemble de commande peut être utilisé dans des téléphones intelligents, des articles portables, des claviers et d'autres dispositifs électroniques portables.
