Immersion Corporation (Nasdaq:IMMR), a developer and provider of licenses for its touch feedback technology, revealed on Thursday that it signed a multi-year licensing arrangement with Continental, an automotive supplier.

Pursuant to the agreement, the company said that Continental can now incorporate the advanced haptic technologies for touchscreen, touch pad and touch panel interfaces in its automotive solutions, to improve the usability of in-car interfaces and making it safer for drivers to interact with their systems while driving.

Financial details of the agreement were not discussed.
