This publication describes techniques and systems for utilizing haptics vibrations to determine a spatial context for a computing device. In an aspect, a system of determining a spatial context utilizes haptics vibrations that are measured by an on-board inertial measurement unit (IMU). The measured haptics sensor data are input into a machine-learned (ML) model (e.g., an embedding model). The embedding model utilizes gravity removal, matched filtering, envelope filtering, and convolutional embedding to generate a spatial context prediction.
