A spin-off of CEA (French Nuclear Research Agency), HAPTION benefits from results and know-how developed in more than 30 years of research. HAPTION designs, manufactures and sells haptic devices with professional quality, suited to the needs of its customers, both industrial and academic.
A haptic interface is a computer device, which enables its user to interact with a software application or with a virtual object through the sense of touch. Our products provide force-feedback on all 6 degrees-of-freedom (translations and rotations), enabling realistic interaction between 3D objects.
Haption is a founding member of EuroVR, the European Association for Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality. Haption is also a member of AFRV, the French association of Virtual Reality, and LVRC (Laval Virtual Reality Capital), the technology cluster of Laval dedicated to Virtual Reality and its applications.
The introduction of force-feedback, combined with interactive physics simulation, is a revolutionary step forward in the field of assembly and maintenance simulation. Not only is the time needed for each simulation divided by a factor of 10 or more, but also some problems which were considered as unsolvable can be solved within a few minutes. Today, Haption is the world leader for assembly and maintenance simulation with force-feedback, without contest.
Based on Haption’s physics simulation technology IPSI,
