Abstract: front page image
(EN) The invention describes a method of controlling a position (x’, y’) of a control point (c) on a command area (ACM). This method comprises the steps of: - aiming a pointing device (1) comprising a camera (2) in the direction of the command area (ACM); - generating an image (I) of a target area (AI) aimed at by the pointing device; - processing the target area image (I) to determine a target point (T) at which the pointing device (1) is aimed; - determining position (x’, y’) of the control point (C) according to the position (x, y) of the target point (T) within a currently defined control area (ACT), which control area (Acr) includes at least partially the command area (ACM). Moreover the invention describes an adequate system and a pointing device (1) for controlling a control point position (P) on a command area (ACM).
(FR) La présente invention se rapporte à un procédé permettant de commander la position (x', y') d'un point de contrôle (c) sur une zone de commande (ACM). Le procédé selon l'invention comprend les étapes consistant : à pointer un dispositif de pointage (1) comportant une caméra (2) en direction de la zone de commande (ACM) ; à générer une image (I) d'une zone cible (AI) visée par le dispositif de pointage ; à traiter l'image (I) de la zone cible pour déterminer un point cible (T) sur lequel le dispositif de pointage (1) est dirigé; à déterminer la position (x', y') du point de commande (C) en fonction de la position (x, y) du point cible (T) dans une zone de contrôle (ACT) définie actuellement, ladite zone de contrôle (Acr) contenant au moins partiellement la zone de commande (ACM). En outre, l'invention a trait à un système approprié et à un dispositif de pointage (1) permettant de commander la position d'un point de contrôle (P) sur une zone de commande (ACM).
