Introduction & Scope

INTRODUCTION
Haptics derives its name from the Greek word haptesthai, literally meaning ?to touch.? Haptics technologies are associated with the sense of touch, in particular about
providing the very important tactile feedback that lends completeness to a user's experience. Haptics technologies can be regarded as fallout of increased sophistication in devices. As the ability of devices to amplify user inputs grew, users were largely oblivious to the impact their imports exerted on the devices. Examples of such early realization are in the field of aviation, wherein a pilot had little idea about the extent of enormity of the powers vested in the controls of the cockpits. System designers therefore began to devise mechanisms within the user would have some idea in the form of tactile feedback about the impact of inputs provided to devices. While aviation, robotics and gaming are the early adopters of haptics, the decisive push was imparted when haptics broke into the mobile device segment.

The confluence of haptics technology with mobile devices has multiplied the effect on the market size for haptics technology. It has also triggered enormous interest about
how haptics technologies work, and how they can impact the prospects of devices that they are embedded in. In that sense, this report provides a timely analysis and forecast
of a technology that is at the frontlines of information and communications technology (ICT) innovation.

When all the hype around haptics technologies is removed, the mechanisms governing haptics technologies are quite uncomplicated. After all, haptics is about providing
tactile feedback, which in its most basic form can be conveyed through simple vibrations. However, in their quest to emulate realistic tactile responses, haptic technology designers have embarked upon an ambitious spree of actuator material and technology exploration. Much of these technologies are largely futuristic without any known market testing in place. This report provides forecasts for technologies that are well entrenched as well as for those technologies that are yet to see commercial
launch as of date.

REASONS FOR DOING THE STUDY
Haptic technologies have a fairly uncomplicated mandate, but the impact of meaningful haptic intervention is disproportionately more effective than the effort
imparted in embedding haptic technology in the respective device. Haptics technology offers designers the opportunity to create a lasting impression and provide user
experience that would have been unimaginable until a few years ago. The exponential change in user perception of haptics has happened primarily due to quantum jumps in
haptic actuation evolution. At the broadest level, haptic actuators have graduated from motor-based design to material-based designs. Reliance on materials allows designers
to free themselves from the vagaries of power supply variations in characteristics.

Having gotten a freer hand in engineering haptic responses, designers have now focused their attention to fine tuning, calibrating and targeting haptic feedback in
order to achieve maximum impact. This movement has two fronts:
- The most obvious one is on the actuation front, as explained earlier.
- The less obvious development is in the area of associated software development.

It should be clarified that the size of software and firmware licensing market is negligible as compared to the haptic actuator and driver markets. At the same time,
advances in haptic actuation have empowered haptic systems designers to engage software-based constructs in a more meaningful and effective manner. Unsurprisingly,
the most active patent holder in the haptics domain consensus activities are firmware and software management. While this report does not get into the quantification of
software market, it delves into the more effective impact it has on the hardware market.
