(FR) SYSTÈME ÉLECTRONIQUE DE LIVRE INTERACTIF ET SON PROCÉDÉ DE FONCTIONNEMENT
Abstract
(EN)
Interactive electronic system having a screen and a three-axis compass sensor for detecting flipping of pages of a book, wherein the book comprises a plurality of pages, each having with one or more magnets, and wherein the system is arranged to detect the flipping of pages of the book by the data readings of the value of one axis, X, Y, or Z; or the magnitude of the calculated vector of the values of the axes X, Y, and Z. Also a method of interaction comprises: downloading the software of the book to the electronic device; putting the book which contains the sensors in a pre-determined area near the electronic device in manner to identify the pages; calibrating the system; obtaining the values of the magnitude of the magnetic field by the compass sensor to detect the page that is open; displaying the corresponding digital content in synchronization.

L'invention porte sur un système électronique interactif ayant un écran et un capteur de compas à trois axes pour détecter un saut de pages d'un livre, le livre comprenant une pluralité de pages, chacune ayant un ou plusieurs aimants, et le système étant conçu pour détecter le saut de pages du livre par les lectures de données de la valeur d'un axe, X, Y ou Z ; ou l'amplitude du vecteur calculé des valeurs des axes X, Y et Z. L'invention porte également sur un procédé d'interaction qui comprend : le téléchargement du logiciel du livre sur le dispositif électronique ; le placement du livre qui contient les capteurs dans une zone prédéterminée proche du dispositif électronique de manière à identifier les pages ; l'étalonnage du système ; l'obtention des valeurs de l'amplitude du champ magnétique par le capteur de compas pour détecter la page qui est ouverte ; l'affichage du contenu numérique correspondant en synchronisation.
