Title
(EN) CONTROLLING AN ELECTRONIC DEVICE
(FR) COMMANDE D'UN DISPOSITIF ELECTRONIQUE
Abstract
(EN) An electronic device (200), such as a computer, a mobile phone or a PDA, is controlled by an arrangement comprising a handheld input unit (300), which records images and converts these to text strings comprising character sequences. The text strings recorded by the input unit (300) are used when controlling the electronic device (200). A signal-processing unit (210) receives the text strings, matches the format of a current text string to a format database comprising predetermined formats, each of which is associated with a command, and generates the command associated with the current text string, so as to control the electronic device (200). The signal-processing unit (210) can search for an address in the current text string. If an address is found, the signal-processing unit (210) causes the electronic device (200) to connect to the address. The input unit, which is capable of operating in different function modes, such as a mouse function mode and a text inputting mode, is arranged to automatically change between the different function modes on the basis of the contents of the recorded images, typically in identification of a predetermined pattern.
(FR) Ce dispositif électronique (200), tel qu'un ordinateur, un téléphone mobile ou un bloc-notes électronique, est commandé par un agencement comprenant une unité d'entrée portative (300), laquelle enregistre des images et convertit celles-ci en chaînes de texte comprenant des séquences de caractères. Les chaînes de texte enregistrées par l'unité d'entrée (300) sont utilisées lors de la commande du dispositif électronique (200). Une unité de traitement de signaux (210) reçoit les chaînes de texte, fait correspondre le format d'une chaîne de texte actuelle avec un format déterminé stocké dans une base de données de tels formats - chaque format étant associé à une commande - et produit la commande associée à la chaîne de texte actuelle, de manière à commander le dispositif électronique (200). L'unité de traitement de signaux (210) peut chercher une adresse dans la chaîne de texte actuelle, et si elle trouve cette adresse, elle provoque la connexion du dispositif électronique (200) avec cette adresse. L'unité d'entrée est capable de fonctionner dans des modes différents, tel qu'un mode de fonction de souris et un mode d'entrée de texte, et elle est conçue pour passer automatiquement d'un mode à l'autre, en fonction du contenu des images enregistrées, généralement par identification d'un motif déterminé.
