Title
(EN) METHOD FOR PRODUCING A POSITION CODE ON A PAPER
(FR) PROCEDE PERMETTANT DE PRODUIRE UN CODE DE POSITION SUR UN PAPIER
Abstract
(EN)
A method and a computer program are described for developing a product (110), and services associated with the product, which product has at least one activation area (308) which is provided with a position code (403) that codes at least one position on an imaginary surface (601), which position causes a device (710) that detects the positon code (403) to initiate an operation that utilizes information recorded by the device (710) that detects the position code (403) to initiate an operation that utilizes information recoded by the device (710). A digital representation of at least part of the product comprising image points is produced, each image point in the digital representation of the activation area (3-8) correspoinding to a position of the imaginary surface (601). A digital template that can be used for making the digital representation of the product is also described.
(FR)
L'invention concerne un procédé et un programme d'ordinateur permettant de développer un produit (110), ainsi que les services associés au produit. Ce produit a au moins une zone d'activation (308) qui est dotée d'un code de position (403) qui code au moins une position sur une surface fictive (601). Cette position amène un dispositif (710) qui détecte le code de positon (403), à initier un fonctionnement qui utilise des informations enregistrées par le dispositif (710). Une représentation numérique d'au moins une partie du produit contenant des points d'image est produite, chaque point d'image de la représentation numérique de la zone d'activation (3-8) correspondant à une position de la surface fictive (601). L'invention concerne également une matrice numérique pouvant être utilisée pour produire la représentation numérique.
