Title (EN) OBJECT SELECTION SYSTEM AND METHOD
(FR) SYSTÈME ET PROCÉDÉ DE SÉLECTION D'OBJET
Abstract:
(EN) A system (100) and method is provided that facilitates the selection of individually selectable three dimensional objects displayed through a display device (108). The system may include at least one processor (102) that is configured to determine at least one path (128) that traverses the objects based (112, 114, 116) on at least one motion input (130) received through an input device (110). The processor may also cause at least two of the objects (112, 114) to be selected in a group while at least one of the objects (116) remains unselected based on an amount of a surface area of each object that was traversed by the at least one path. In addition, the processor may cause at least one operation to be carried out on the group of at least two objects that are selected and not on the at least one object that remains unselected based on whether the objects are selected, responsive to at least one operation input (132) received through the input device.
(FR) L'invention concerne un système (100) et un procédé qui facilitent la sélection d'objets en trois dimensions qui peuvent être sélectionnés de manière individuelle et qui sont affichés par le biais d'un dispositif d'affichage (108). Le système peut comprendre au moins un processeur (102) qui est configuré de sorte à déterminer au moins un chemin (128) qui traverse les objets (112, 114, 116) en se basant sur au moins une entrée de mouvement (130) reçue par le biais d'un dispositif d'entrée (110). Le processeur peut également provoquer la sélection d'au moins deux des objets (112, 114) dans un groupe tandis qu'au moins l'un des objets (116) reste non sélectionné sur la base d'une quantité d'une zone de surface de chaque objet qui a été traversé par le ou les chemins. De plus, le processeur peut provoquer la réalisation d'au moins une opération sur le groupe d'au moins deux objets qui sont sélectionnés et non pas sur le ou les objets qui restent non sélectionnés selon que les objets sont sélectionnés, à la suite d'au moins une entrée d'opération (132) reçue par le biais du dispositif d'entrée.
