Fun with Haptics

  • Donald Wilcher


Haptics is the sensing and manipulation of objects using touch. The Arduino has the ability to monitor and control devices using sensors and electromechanical actuators. Sensory devices that can be interfaced or wired to the Arduino include CdS photocells, tactile switches, thermistors, and temperature ICs. Electromechanical actuators (such as solenoids) and motors (such as servos, steppers, and DC motors) can be used to manipulate or change the orientation of objects either in a linear or angular direction.
