As touch sensors become more popular, adding haptic feedback improves the user experience and differentiates the product. This session will highlight how capacitive touch sensing works and how to implement it into the system. Also covered is how to add different haptic effects to a design with touch sensors to provide feedback to the user. Finally, the discussion will address some of the challenges of a system with both capacitive sensing and haptics.
