Joining the Rolls-Royce Innovation supplier ecosystem is definitely a new opportunity for challenges to IHS. Entering the market with medical training robots, IHS will continue thriving through the medical industry, and in the future expand to cutting-edge technologies such as surgical assistance robots and telesurgery robots. Utilizing the solid hardware and software capabilities of the company, IHS will provide “haptic+” platforms, and bring disruptive solutions to the medical, education, manufacturing, gaming, entertainment, and more industries. All fields including design, R&D, production, and service will be tied closely within the “haptic+” closed-loop ecosystem, creating a truly immersive haptic experience. Simultaneously, IHS has a plan to join the metaverse and related R&D process. Instead of creating an individual metaverse, IHS’ focus will be modulizing haptic + VR + AI technologies, hence, merging into the metaverse of tech giants as the underlying technical supplier of haptic, VR, and AI.
In the December of 2021, Rolls-Royce (Defence) has exclusively identified 25 companies globally for their Haptic Challenge.
