Posted by fidest press agency su mercoledì, 1 gennaio 2020

Murata Manufacturing Co., Ltd. (TOKYO: 6981) (ISIN: JP3914400001) and MIRAISENS, Inc. (head office: Tsukuba City, Ibaraki Prefecture; CEO: Natsuo Koda; hereafter “MIRAISENS”), which offers haptic solutions technology using 3DHaptics technology*1, have signed an agreement for MIRAISENS to become a wholly-owned subsidiary of Murata Manufacturing. However, the specific terms and conditions of this agreement have not been disclosed. Demand for tactile experiences has been rising in various markets in recent years. Such markets include the entertainment sector, in which realistic gaming experiences are expected due to the spread of virtual reality and the coming expansion of 5G, and the medical sector, which requires tactile feedback for patients during remote treatment.MIRAISENS is developing 3DHaptics technology based on “Illusionary Haptics*2,” the world’s first haptic technology established on a neuroscientific basis by the National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology (Tsukuba head office: Tsukuba City, Ibaraki Prefecture; president: Ryoji Chubachi; hereafter “AIST”).2 Discovered for the first time in the world by Dr. Norio Nakamura at AIST. By generating illusions in the human brain through dermal stimuli, this technology creates a mental illusion.
MIRAISENS’s haptic solutions technology differs from conventional technology based on physical engineering, and lets humans perceive various textures and tactile sensations by generating illusions in the brain through specific stimulation patterns on the skin.
For example, this technology can make it seem as if one were actually feeling the softness or texture of objects expressed as digital content in VR games. MIRAISENS is achieving these outstanding product characteristics with small and low-cost hardware through its original programming and housing design.Through this acquisition, Murata Manufacturing aims to offer original products and services by combining the device design technology it has cultivated in its sensor and actuator business with the haptic solutions technology owned by MIRAISENS.
