Mechanical Fundamentals of Piezo Haptic Actuators

How to replace ERMs and LRAs with piezo haptics

7 min

Piezo haptics operate under a different mechanical concept than legacy technologies and will need a different approach to achieve a successful integration with better tactile effects. Let’s see how piezo haptics differentiate themselves from ERMs and LRAs and how it will impact their integration.

You'll learn in this video:

  • Mechanical fundamentals of ERM, LRA and piezo actuators
  • Isaac Nowton's laws of motion and their impact in haptics
  • How actuator's performance is measured
  • How to take advantage of piezo haptics hardware flexibility
