Title (EN) MULTI-DIMENSIONAL TRACKPAD
(FR) PAVÉ TACTILE MULTIDIMENSIONNEL
Abstract: front page image
(EN)A multi-dimensional track pad is described that acts as human-machine interface (HMI). Inputs to the HMI can be made not only using the tradition two-dimensional (X-Y) inputs of a track pad, but also a third dimension, force, and even a fourth dimension, time. Tactile or audible feedback to the inputs can be provided. Methods of using the HMI to control a system are described as well as a track pad system that utilizes the HMI in communication with a processor.
(FR)La présente invention porte sur un pavé tactile multidimensionnel qui sert d'interface homme-machine (IHM). Des entrées dans l'IHM peuvent être faites par utilisation non seulement des entrées bidimensionnelles (X-Y) traditionnelles d'un pavé tactile, mais en outre d'une troisième dimension, la force, et même d'une quatrième dimension, le temps. Un retour tactile ou audible peut être fourni en réponse aux entrées. Des procédés d'utilisation de l'IHM pour commander un système sont décrits, ainsi qu'un système de pavé tactile qui utilise l'IHM en communication avec un processeur.
