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.

Value proposition

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,

  1. IFC  "Interactive Fitting for CATIA" is a CAAV5-based plug-in for CATIA V5 dedicated to Product Simulation: interactive assembly and maintenance. It consists in two sets of V5 commands, appearing as two new toolbars:  IFC Core provides tools for creating an interactive physic simulation session, managing interaction devices, changing object properties, etc.  IFC Human complements IFC Core with human simulation functionalities, such as calibration, grasping, etc.
  2. RTI Delmia “Realtime Interaction for DELMIA Human V5” is a CAAV5-based plug-in for DELMIA V5 dedicated to Process Simulation: the manikin can interact in realtime to validate task, tooling.
