Title
(EN) INFORMATION SYSTEMS HAVING POSITION MEASURING CAPACITY
(FR) SYSTEMES D'INFORMATION DOTES D'UNE CAPACITE DE MESURE DE POSITION
Abstract
(EN) Systems are arranged to provide a user information which relates to objects of interest. A user may provide indication of a directional reference to a device. The device determines which objects are being addressed by searching a database containing preprogrammed information relating to objects. Information relating to objects being addressed can then be presented at a user interface. A device of the system may include a point reference, a position determining means, an input receiving means, a computer processor and database, and a user interface. Methods of the system includes the steps of indicating a direction, determining position, searching a database, and presenting information to a user.
(FR) L'invention se rapporte à des systèmes conçus pour délivrer des informations utilisateur relatives à des objets d'intérêt. Un utilisateur peut fournir à un dispositif une indication de référence directionnelle. Ledit dispositif détermine quels objets sont concernés par la recherche dans une base de données contenant des informations préprogrammées relatives aux objets. Les informations relatives aux objets qui sont concernées peuvent être présentées à une interface utilisateur. Un dispositif du système peut comporter une référence ponctuelle, une unité de détermination de la position, un organe récepteur d'entrée, une unité de traitement et une base de données d'ordinateur, ainsi qu'une interface utilisateur. Les procédés associés à ce système consistent à indiquer une direction, à déterminer une position, à effecteur une recherche dans une base de données et à présenter l'information à l'utilisateur.
