Title: SYSTEM AND METHOD FOR RECOGNIZING ORIENTATION OF AN OBJECT PLACED ON AN INTERACTIVE SURFACE
Abstract:
A system and accompanying method for recognizing orientation of an object (2) placed on an interactive surface (1). The system includes an interactive surface (1), a processor operatively linked to the interactive surface (1), an array (6) of sensors operatively linked to the processor, and an object (2) that has multiple external sides (4). Each of the external sides (4) is visually marked with an indicator (5). Once the object (2) is placed on the interactive surface (1), the array (6) of sensors detects an identification value of the external side (4) that is in touch with the interactive surface (1) and transmits the identification value to the processor, and the processor derives the orientation of the object (2) based on the identification value.
