Touch interface software to streamline haptic effects

Aito BV has announced its UX Design Studio development tool that the company said is meant to streamline the creation of "user experience" (UX) designs for physical user interfaces based on the company's software enhanced piezo (SEP) touch control technology.

According to Aito, the software suite is aimed at both product designers, concerned with the operation and response of touch controls, and the embedded hardware and software engineers who will implement the design.

UX Design Studio is said to dramatically ease the adoption of touch controls by allowing the rapid evaluation of design concepts and the validation of ideas without needing to prototype early designs or have any detailed knowledge of the underlying technology.

Later in the development cycle, Design Studio provides a comprehensive capability for easily configuring the touch interface by adjusting the touch sensitivity and providing various tactile, audible and visual feedback signals, noted the company.

The intuitive GUI allows developers to create code that can either be uploaded directly to the Arduino Nano platform, included with Aito's evaluation kits, or used by the customer's embedded software engineers to quickly create device drivers for their own host processor, using Aito's Arduino Library.

The software provides a timeline view, with separate bars for each output, to show changes to design parameters in real-time. It also provides information on other parameters such as buzzer frequency or haptic sharpness. UX Design Studio is available on request, free of charge, to allow the initial evaluation of Aito's SEP touch technology.
