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. The fifth generation (5G) of cellular is widely anticipated as a game changer for many reasons including a few low-latency dependent applications such as those that utilize Haptic Internet.
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. Aided by 5G networks, haptic systems and applications will facilitate transmission of touch and actuation in real-time, leading to a new class of highly interactive and engaging services generally referred to as Haptic Communications. It is expected that commercialization of 5G will allow the Haptic Internet to go mainstream as applications become available on an anytime, anywhere basis.
