Laval, February 2017 – Haption has relentlessly worked on what some might call minor improvements, others big steps.
Compatibility with ROS
After a first draft with our customer from KU Leuven, we are proud to release a Virtuose package for ROS : Robot Operating System platform.
This is the first stage for our customers to rely on a solid base before pushing further into a personalized integration into the platform.
Coupling with KUKA
On the way to create ways to new use cases, a coupling with Kuka's famous Iiwa robot was started and we quickly realized major achievements!
Showroom in Laval
Laval, June 2016 – After a few days on installation, testing and painting, Realyz and Haptions's combined efforts will finally pay as the "Hapticube" showroom is now ready.
The year 2015 was a good test for Haption's latest product the Scale1, as 5 of those systems were installed during this period.
This is why we decided we needed to be able to let our partners and customers to have the chance to try it by themselves. This desire came alive by the partnership with Realyz to implement such a system in Laval.
The goal is to invite our customers to try their data in a large-scale haptic device with a CAVE or HMD environment, with the latest technology in terms of tracking and software.
