Abstract
(EN)
In a method of operating at least first and second electronic devices, the devices are each arranged to transmit and receive ultrasonic signals, e.g. to operate a touchless user interface. Both devices, or at least two of the devices, are synchronised to transmit said signals at substantially the same time. The devices may, for example, listen to each other's ultrasonic signals or use a WiFi network access point for synchronisation.
(FR)
Dans un procédé de fonctionnement d'au moins des premier et second dispositifs électroniques, les dispositifs sont chacun conçus pour émettre et recevoir des signaux ultrasonores, par exemple pour faire fonctionner une interface utilisateur sans contact. Les deux dispositifs ou au moins deux des dispositifs sont synchronisés pour transmettre les signaux sensiblement simultanément. Les dispositifs peuvent, par exemple, écouter chacun les signaux ultrasonores de l'autre ou utiliser un point d'accès de réseau WiFi en vue de la synchronisation.
