Haptic Internet



Most people are familiar with Haptic technology by way of the kinesthetic user interface for smart phones or other consumer electronics that recreates a sense of touch by applying forces, vibrations, or motions to the user. Conversely, haptic devices may incorporate tactile sensors that measure forces exerted by the user on the interface.  Tactile Internet will be based on haptic sense/ touch that will connect humans with unknown environments. Haptic sense establishes bilateral communication patterns as touch imposes sensed motion on environment that enables environment to create a distortion or reaction and feel.

Tactile Internet enables the service level of haptic or non-verbal communication where remote users will be able to enjoy haptic experiences through real-time interactive systems. The primary application that will run on tactile Internet is called haptic communication. Sensing touch is used as communication medium in non-verbal and non-visual haptic communication. 

Next generation Internet applications will be tactile and responsive to non-verbal communication in which remote users will be able to enjoy haptic experiences through real-time interactive systems.

Many of these applications will involve Teleoperation and involve robotics and many different Industrial IoT (IIoT) operations.

Haptic Internet is one of a few key Immersive Technologies that will benefit from improved broadband such as 5G.
