This project is to create a comprehensive haptics API for the Java Language, this project started with the writing of a Java Binding to the SensAble OpenHaptics API by Ian John Archer (Software Engineer - Birmingham City University User-Lab). The first version of the JTouchToolkit was release OpenSource in Sept of 2007 after a year of in house development by User-Lab. The main aim of this project is to create a Haptics API that takes advantage of the benefits of a mature language such as Java.

JVEX-robotics has created and implemented a messaging protocol controlling microcontrollers from Java hosts. The protocol consists of ASCII messages for device identification, control and feedback, relieving the host of responsibility for low level management tasks. Implementations have controlled VEX robots managed by the Systronix JCX Java Controller.
