If you have successfully managed to feel vibrations from your audio signal, you may have noticed that lower frequencies are preferred by the DRV Even years mean Eurohaptics year! If you are using a stereo source, be sure to use the coupling circuitry outlined in the Stereo to Mono Coupling section below. At this point, you should see your selected motor on the screen, which refers to the selected motor in the Haptic Grip. At a certain point, you may be better to simply use the normal haptic modes of the DRV and trigger an effect when desired, rather than converting it back into an audio signal and putting using the Audio-to-Vibe function. There are lots of different designs for bandpass filters, too many to cover in this article but different designs are widely available online.

At Precision Microdrives we are experienced in understanding the exact needs of an application and designing custom haptic circuits, just like the haptic-audio systems described above. The main topic of the conference are small actuators for all kinds of application — and of course also for haptic applications. Your success will depend on available components. An ideal bandpass filter would perfectly allow the desired frequencies to pass and fully reject those outside the cut-off frequencies.
This means that audio devices that are designed with low hapgic outputs, such as a microphone or electronic musical mxim pickups, will produce weaker vibrations. Improve the performance of your Audio-to-Vibe system by naptic low pass filters to cut out undesirable higher frequencies and harmonics. This is an excerpt from the Haptic Shield schematic, which can be downloaded in the Documents and Resources section.
maaxim The higher the volume, the higher the amplitude. If you are using a stereo source, be sure to use the coupling circuitry outlined in the Stereo to Mono Coupling section below.
At a certain point, you may be better to simply use the normal haptic modes of the DRV and trigger an effect when desired, rather than converting it back into an audio signal and putting using the Audio-to-Vibe function. Just have a look at the categories on the left side. This has the advantage that any custom circuits you build, for example on a breadboard, can be easily connected using jumper cables – avoiding creating a soldering a 3.
However, there are exeptions….
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.
Note that the maximum input voltage for the audio connector is 1V RMS, you should verify that your audio device does not exceed this level to ensure you do not damage the DRV or Arduino. As a further complication to audio hatic, the DRV does not have a linear response across the entire frequency range. At this point, you should see your selected motor on the screen, which refers to the selected motor in the Haptic Grip.
It is possible to focus the output on certain frequency ranges using filters, which we discuss in the improvements section below.
Tutorial: Haptic Feedback Using Music and Audio – Precision Microdrives
A 2nd order RLC low pass filter maxij similar to the bandpass filter, except the output signal is taken across the capacitor instead of the resistor. Bandpass filters are a more complicated design than the simple RC lowpass example above.
Or call us at: However, there is still lots of scope to increase the sophistication and complexity of your system depending on how refined you hatic to make maxlm vibrations. As a result, bass notes are featured far more prominently than mid-range instruments. As every year, there were exciting works at the conference from all aspects of haptics, find our highlights for the design of task-specific haptic interfaces in this post! Essentially, the DRV is a mono input 1 channel but most music is stereo 2 channelsso you will need to make your stereo source output into a single channel input for Audio-to-Vibe mode.
A rough guide is shown below please note this is a subjective graph mxaim the vibration strengths have not been measured:.

maxjm The book is available in print and online from Springer since September Contact Us Considering Precision Microdrives? 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.
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 hapti using a Digital-to-Analogue converter to revert it to an audio signal for the DRV See how maxjm access the feature and improve the performance in this tutorial.
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. The vibration strength depends on two factors of the audio signal: This means there is a slight attenuation inside the desired range and some playback of frequencies outside the range.
