Title (EN) USER INTERFACE FOR AN ELECTRONIC DEVICE
(FR) INTERFACE UTILISATEUR POUR UN DISPOSITIF ELECTRONIQUE
Abstract:
(EN) A user input interface for an electronic device, comprising a keyboard with a plurality of keys arranged in proximity to each other. Each key comprises an input detector sensitive to detect user activation, such as a pressure switch. A sensor in each key is configured to generate a signal responsive to a sensed level of user- induced influence on the key, such as a degree of coverage of or contact with the key. A control unit is then configured to compare the generated signals for a number of keys simultaneously activated by a user, in order to determine which one of the simultaneously activated is intended to be input by the user.
(FR) La présente invention concerne une interface de saisie utilisateur destinée à un dispositif électronique, comprenant un clavier avec une pluralité de touches agencées à proximité l'une de l'autre. Chaque touche comprend un détecteur de saisie sensible pour détecter l'activation par l'utilisation, par exemple un commutateur de pression. Un capteur dans chaque touche est configuré pour générer un signal répondant à un niveau capté d'influence induite par l'utilisateur sur la touche, notamment un degré de couverture ou de contact avec la touche. Une unité de commande est ensuite configuré pour comparer les signaux générés pour plusieurs touches activées simultanément par un utilisateur, afin de déterminer celle des touches activées simultanément que l'utilisateur a l'intention d'enfoncer.
