The selection of a suitable motor for a vibro- tactile application can be tiresome because of the variety of componentes and the mostly quite minimalistic datasheets. Essentially, the DRV is a mono input 1 channel but most music is stereo 2 channels , so you will need to make your stereo source output into a single channel input for Audio-to-Vibe mode. However, there are exeptions…. This great addition to the chip makes the act of creating meaningful vibrations from audio sources, like music, extremely simple. Maxim Integrated just introduced a new reference design based on the MAX, a 24bit, 6-channel Delta-Sigma ADC with programmable amplifer, used to read out four force sensors. Of course, you could add some serious capability to the system by using an Analogue-to-Digital Converter ADC and then performing digital signal processing in the processor or other dedicated IC before using a Digital-to-Analogue converter to revert it to an audio signal for the DRV However, you should note that many instruments will work across this threshold, some notes of a guitar will be picked up by the DRV whilst others will not, which could result in confusing outputs.

At this point, you should see your selected motor on the screen, which refers to the selected motor in the Haptic Grip. A rough guide is shown below please note this is a subjective graph and the vibration strengths have not been measured:. A 2nd order RLC low pass filter is similar to the bandpass filter, except the output signal is taken across the capacitor instead of the resistor.
There are mazim types of advanced filters available, including high order passive filters, active filters, and even specialist types like Butterworth or Chebyshev filters. As mentioned above, the Haptic Shield includes the required components to couple both stereo baptic into a single mono channel for the DRV This is an excerpt from the Haptic Shield schematic, which can be downloaded in the Documents and Resources section.
The selection of a suitable motor for a vibro- tactile application can be tiresome because of the variety of componentes and the mostly quite minimalistic datasheets. The Haptic Feedback Evaluation Kit includes the simple circuitry to handle this for you, so the 3. This means there is a slight attenuation inside the desired range and some playback of frequencies outside the range.

Hatpic many instances, this is probably what you want – vibrations following the rhythmic bass than wandering melodies. For example, a kick drum might have an initial attack around Hz, before decaying away to 20 Hz over a short period of time.
The vibration strength depends on two factors of the audio signal: This tutorial covers how to set the Haptic Feedback Evaluation Kit into Audio-to-Vibe mode to get users started quickly, before suggesting some more advanced options for improving the performance of their haptic audio systems.
Here you would be able to perform a wide range of techniques to manipulate your waveform exactly how you wanted – for example, taking a high pitched frequency and transforming it into a frequency the DRV can respond to. Sadly ideal filters do not exist.
Maxim Integrated just introduced a new reference design based on the MAX, a 24bit, 6-channel Delta-Sigma ADC with programmable amplifer, used to read out four force sensors. Navigate to the “Audio” menu option and press play – remember to select your actuator with the PMD button first!
You can use simple passive components, such as an RLC circuit:. As a further complication to audio frequencies, the DRV does not have a linear response across the entire frequency range. Design of Task-Specific Haptic Systems. The performance will vary and can be improved depending on a number of factors, which we cover in the next section.
For example, the cut-off frequency for a first-order RC lowpass filter is given:. A simple RC lowpass hapric, inductors can also be used but capacitors tend to be ,axim freely available and have smaller footprints. This great addition to the chip makes the act of creating meaningful vibrations from audio sources, like music, extremely simple. It is possible to focus the output on certain frequency ranges using filters, which we discuss in the improvements section below.
A bandpass filter can help capture the exact frequency range you want. As every year, there were exciting works at the conference from haptkc aspects of haptics, find our highlights for the design of task-specific haptic interfaces in this post! In general, this is most applicable to those looking to use music as a ha;tic, where different instruments may be mixed on the separate left and right channels.
However, you should note that many instruments will work across this maximm, some notes of a guitar will be picked up by the DRV whilst others will not, which could result in confusing outputs.
Calculating the cut-off frequency is very hapitc, however, because components are only readily available in certain values you may have to compromise slightly. There are lots of different designs for bandpass filters, too many to cover in this article but different designs are widely available online.
Note that the graph is not produced from measured results, but are tested from sweeping the input frequency and feeling the mazim in hand. As a result, bass notes are featured far more prominently than mid-range instruments.

We are also eager to hear from you about your experiences with the book — just send us a mail to feedback hapticdevices. The higher the volume, the higher the amplitude. This maxkm that audio devices that are designed with low voltage outputs, such as a microphone or electronic musical instrument pickups, will produce weaker vibrations.
