Abstract: front page image
(EN)Aspects discussed herein are directed to ergonomic pointing device systems. In one example, a pointing device system includes an elongate base member, a sleeve disposed to fit over at least a portion of the elongate base member, the sleeve configured to rotate about the elongate base member in a first direction and slide about the elongate base member in a second direction substantially orthogonal to the first direction, where the sleeve includes a pattern on a surface thereof, and a sensor disposed within the elongate base member and positioned to detect at least one of a rotational movement of the sleeve relative to the sensor and an axial movement of the sleeve relative to the sensor based at least in part on a variation of the pattern within a field of view of the sensor.
(FR)Selon certains aspects, l'invention concerne des systèmes de dispositif de pointage ergonomiques. Dans un exemple, un système de dispositif de pointage comprend un élément de base allongé, un manchon disposé de façon à s'ajuster sur au moins une partie de l'élément de base allongé, le manchon étant configuré pour tourner autour de l'élément de base allongé dans une première direction et coulisser autour de l'élément de base allongé dans une seconde direction sensiblement orthogonale à la première direction, le manchon comprenant un motif sur une surface de celui-ci, et un capteur disposé à l'intérieur de l'élément de base allongé et positionné pour détecter un mouvement de rotation du manchon par rapport au capteur et/ou un mouvement axial du manchon par rapport au capteur sur la base, au moins en partie, d'une variation du motif dans un champ de vision du capteur.
