Application: Using a haptic effects library to determine whether to provide predefined or parametrically-defined haptic responses, and systems and methods of use thereof (Patent ID: US20230341941A1)

The patent filed by Meta Platforms Inc. discloses methods and systems that utilize a haptics library to determine whether predefined haptic responses or parametrically-defined haptic responses should be provided based on desired semantic attributes. The haptics library, distinct from the application, generates data for haptic responses on electronic devices, selecting values for haptic-response parameters to deliver the desired semantic attribute through parametrically-defined haptic responses. The system allows for different semantic attributes to be associated with specific haptic responses, enhancing user experience by providing tailored haptic feedback based on user input and application context.

Furthermore, the patent outlines a method for determining haptic responses based on semantic attributes across various applications and electronic devices, including wrist-wearable devices. By utilizing a haptics library and distinct functions for different semantic attributes, the system can provide parametrically-defined haptic responses tailored to specific user interactions. The technology enables a more personalized and immersive user experience by dynamically adjusting haptic feedback parameters based on user input, application type, and desired semantic attributes, ultimately enhancing the overall usability and effectiveness of haptic feedback systems in electronic devices.
