The Haptic SDK is the software interface for all Force Dimension products. It enables users to easily add haptic capability to their application by hiding all the complexity of haptic device programming. With the Haptic SDK, programmers only need to add a few lines of C/C++ to their code to take full advantage of the Force Dimension haptic device high-fidelity force rendering.
The Haptic SDK provides out-of-the-box compatibility with most existing haptic visualization packages (see features for more details), which makes it even easier for simulation application developers to use Force Dimension haptic products.
For researchers and users who need to perform advanced control tasks, the Haptic SDK provides a range of low-level functions that make it possible to access and control every aspect of Force Dimension haptic devices.
Alongside its haptic software, Force Dimension provides the Robotic SDK targeted at robotic and collaborative application development. With the Robotic SDK, the haptic device can safely and elegantly move in space, opening the door to new ways for man and machine to collaborate.
Both the Haptic SDK and Robotic SDK are available for popular platforms including Windows, Linux and Mac OS, as well as real-time operating systems such as QNX and tenAsys INtime.
