LCM haptic feedback touchscreen
Consortium parner Linz Center of Mechatronics GmbH (LCM) developed an innovative touch screen with haptic feedback features. The heart of the recently patented system is a transparent plate, which is actively deformed by piezoelectric actuators. The plate provides haptic feedback precisely at the moment it is touched, rather similar to the impression obtained by physically tapping a conventional key. Interaction with touch panels becomes more intuitive, and input accuracy increases. More can be found in attached PDF.

Fraunhofer IZM premises in Berlin

On 26./27. October the SILENSE partnership will have its second meeting, hosted by our Berlin partner TU Berlin in the premises of Franhofer IZM. It will be a great opportunity to assess the work of the first months and bring everyone together again since our kick-off. It has already become clear that a key element for success is the collaboration between the work packages. It is a crucial part of our project and this meeting offers us the chance to tie the established links closer. We will have plenty of time to do this in our meeting but also during the days and our evening gathering.
