Title (EN) SECTIONAL TOUCH SENSOR FRAME FOR ADAPTATION OF TOUCH-INSENSITIVE DISPLAY
(FR) CADRE DE CAPTEUR TACTILE SECTIONNEL POUR L'ADAPTATION D'UN ÉCRAN NON TACTILE
Abstract:
(EN) A touch sensor device is provided comprising one more sections, that when connected, form a frame. There are multiple light emitters positioned around the inner perimeter of the frame. Multiple sensors are positioned around the inner perimeter of the frame, and the sensors are configured to detect light signals generated from the light emitters. A controller is also positioned within the frame, and it controls the activation of the light emitters. It also determines the positions of objects interacting with the device based on which of the sensors have detected the light signals. There is also a data communication module attached to or located within the frame, and it transmits the computed position data.
(FR) La présente invention concerne un dispositif de capteur tactile comprenant une ou plusieurs sections qui, une fois reliées, forment un cadre. De multiples émetteurs de lumière sont positionnés autour du périmètre intérieur du cadre. De multiples capteurs sont positionnés autour du périmètre intérieur du cadre, et les capteurs sont conçus pour détecter des signaux de lumière générés à partir des émetteurs de lumière. Un dispositif de commande est également positionné à l'intérieur du cadre, et commande l'activation des émetteurs de lumière. Ledit dispositif détermine également les positions d'objets interagissant avec le dispositif sur la base des capteurs ayant détecté les signaux de lumière. L'invention comporte en outre un module de communication de données fixé ou situé à l'intérieur du cadre, et qui transmet les données de position calculées.
