Abstract—Based on an analysis of the features of current software for haptic interaction, an extensible software for highly flexible and reconfigurable systems called the open software platform for haptic interaction (OPHI) is presented. The OPHI serves a wide range of functions, including the control of hardware devices and the execution of complicated application programs. Based on general software architecture, standardized components with design patterns, frameworks, and interfaces are established to develop haptic interaction applications easily and efficiently. Additionally, the OPHI subjects all modules and components to proper evaluation and testing, thereby avoiding potential errors caused by incomplete coding. As a comprehensive platform for all stages of development, the OPHI serves a significant function in the standardization of software for haptic interaction.
