Title
(EN) ALERT SIGNAL UNIT FOR AN ELECTRONIC DEVICE TO COMPENSATE FOR THE INFLUENCE OF AN ENVIRONMENT
(FR) UNITE DE PRODUCTION DE SIGNAUX AVERTISSEURS, DESTINEE A UN DISPOSITIF ELECTRONIQUE, AUX FINS DE COMPENSATION DE L'INFLUENCE D'UN ENVIRONNEMENT
Abstract
(EN)
An alert signal unit for an electronic device utilizing an alert signal to draw the attention of a user, such as a cellular phone, is provided with means (30) for generating alert signals (AS), whereby each alert signal (AS) is controlled by a control means (20) according to an ambient condition of an environment in which the electronic device is used. The ambient condition is detected by a detection means (10) using a sensor (13). The detection means (10) produce a detection signal (DS) indicative of the ambient condition. The detection signal (DS) is received and analyzed by the control means (20) in order to produce a control signal (CS) for controlling the generation of alert signals (AS). Furthermore, the alert signals (AS) are transmitted to the control means (20) such that the control means (20) control the generation of each alert signal (AS) according to the detected ambient condition and according to the generated alert signal (AS). So, the generation of alert signals (AS) can be controlled in order to obtain alert signals (AS) which are suitable for specific ambient conditions of an environment in order to compensate for the influence of that environment.

Cette unité de production de signaux avertisseurs, destinée à un dispositif électronique, tel qu'un téléphone cellulaire, et mettant en oeuvre un signal avertisseur afin d'attirer l'attention d'un utilisateur, est dotée de moyens (30) de production de signaux avertisseurs, chaque signal étant commandé par des moyens de commande (20) en fonction d'une condition ambiante de l'environnement dans lequel ce dispositif électronique est utilisé. Cette condition ambiante (20) est détectée par des moyens de détection (10) mettant en oeuvre un capteur (13). Les moyens de détection (10) produisent un signal de détection indiquant la condition ambiante. Ce signal de détection est reçu et analysé par les moyens de commande (20) de manière que ceux-ci puissent produire un signal de commande de production de signaux avertisseurs. En outre, les signaux avertisseurs sont transmis aux moyens de commande (20) de façon que ces derniers commandent la production de chaque signal avertisseur, en fonction de la condition ambiante détectée et en fonction du signal avertisseur produit. Ainsi, il est possible de commander la production de signaux avertisseurs, de manière à obtenir des signaux avertisseurs appropriés aux conditions ambiantes spécifiques d'un environnement, pour compenser l'influence de cet environnement.
