Abstract
(EN)
This disclosure relates to proximity sensing for wink detection. An illustrative method includes receiving data from a receiver portion of a proximity sensor. The receiver portion is disposed at a side section of a head-mountable device (HMD). When a wearer wears the HMD, the receiver portion is arranged to receive light reflected from an eye area of the wearer, the proximity sensor detects a movement of the eye area, and the data represents the movement. The method includes determining that the data corresponds to a wink gesture. The method also includes selecting a computing action to perform, based on the wink gesture. The method further includes performing the computing action.

L'invention concerne une détection de proximité pour détecter un clignement. Un procédé exemplaire consiste à recevoir des données d'une partie récepteur d'un capteur de proximité. La partie récepteur est disposée sur une section latérale d'un dispositif monté sur la tête (HMD). Lorsqu'un porteur porte le HMD, la partie récepteur est conçue pour recevoir la lumière réfléchie par une zone de l'œil du porteur, le capteur de proximité détecte un mouvement de la zone de l'œil, et les données représentent le mouvement. Le procédé consiste à déterminer que les données correspondent à un geste de clignement. Le procédé consiste également à choisir une action de calcul à effectuer en fonction du geste de clignement. Le procédé consiste en outre à effectuer l'action de calcul.
