Title (EN) MECHANICAL CENTER CALIBRATION OF CONTROL STICKS IN USER INPUT DEVICES
(FR) ÉTALONNAGE DU CENTRE MÉCANIQUE DES MANETTES DE COMMANDE DANS DES DISPOSITIFS D'ENTRÉE UTILISATEUR
Abstract:
(EN) User input devices, such as gaming controllers, are provided herein. In one example, a user input device includes a control stick mechanism configured to receive user manipulation in one or more axes. The user input device includes control circuitry configured to process movement data representative of the user manipulation to derive a mechanical center of the control stick mechanism from at least a sequence of qualified resting points associated with the control stick mechanism. The control circuitry is configured to at least re-center the movement data according to the mechanical center to establish calibrated movement data, and present the calibrated movement data for use in controlling one or more user interface elements with the control stick mechanism.
(FR) L'invention concerne des dispositifs d'entrée d'utilisateur, tels que des manettes de jeu. Dans un exemple, un dispositif d'entrée utilisateur comprend un mécanisme de mannette de commande configuré de manière à recevoir une manipulation utilisateur dans un ou plusieurs axes. Le dispositif d'entrée utilisateur comprend des circuits de commande configurés pour traiter les données de mouvement représentatives de la manipulation par l'utilisateur afin de déduire un centre mécanique du mécanisme de mannette de commande d'au moins une séquence de points de repos qualifiés associés au mécanisme de mannette de commande. Les circuits de commande sont configurés pour au moins recentrer les données de mouvement en fonction du centre mécanique pour établir des données de mouvement étalonnées, et présenter les données de mouvement étalonnées à utiliser dans la commande d'un ou de plusieurs éléments d'interface utilisateur au moyen du mécanisme de mannette de commande.
