Title
(EN) FULLY FUNCTIONAL REMOTE CONTROL EDITOR AND EMULATOR
(FR) EDITEUR ET EMULATEUR DE TELECOMMANDE ENTIEREMENT FONCTIONNELS
Abstract
(EN)
A universal programmable remote control device has programmability functions that enable the end-user to customize the device through editing or programming the device's control functionalities. The programming can be achieved via a PC. The control configuration created via an editor on the PC can be downloaded into the device. The PC has emulator software to test the configuration before downloading. The emulator software and the remote's control software are made identical as a consequence of a software layer that abstracts from the remote's hardware. The emulator for the end-user is thus obtained as an almost free byproduct of the software development phase at the manufacturer.
(FR)
Cette invention concerne un dispositif de télécommande universelle programmable dont les fonctions de programmabilité permettent à l'utilisateur de personnaliser ledit dispositif en éditant ou en programmant ces fonctions. La programmation peut se faire via un ordinateur personnel. La configuration de commande créée via un éditeur sur l'ordinateur personnel peut être transférée dans le dispositif. L'ordinateur personnel comporte un logiciel d'émulation permettant de contrôler la configuration avant transfert. Le logiciel d'émulation et celui de la télécommande sont identiques compte tenu de la présence d'une couche logicielle qui est calquée à partir du matériel de la télécommande. Ainsi, l'émulateur pour utilisateur est un produit secondaire dérivé pratiquement sans frais de la phase de développement.
