Title: TOUCH DEVICE WITH SUPPRESSION BAND
Abstract:
The invention relate to the identification and suppression of inadvertent touches on a touch device, such as a touchpad (102) or a touch screen. A suppression region (106) is monitored on the touch device, and received touches are classified as intended or inadvertent based on the touches inside or outside of the suppression region. The suppression region is continually monitored, even while touches determined to be intended are being captured. Inadvertent touches are suppressed, and intended touches are allowed to be displayed or otherwise processed.
