Title (EN) OPTICAL-EFFECT TOUCHPAD ON A STEERING WHEEL FOR FINGER DETECTION
(FR) PALETTE TACTILE À EFFET OPTIQUE SUR VOLANT DE CONDUITE POUR DÉTECTION DE DOIGT
Abstract:
(EN) The invention relates to a system for detecting gestural control performed by a finger of a motor vehicle driver, the system comprising an interface pad (3), a light source (4) emitting in the infrared towards the pad, an imaging sensor (5) for capturing the images returned by the pad on the side away from the driver, having a base frame (1) and a movable tab (2), a region of optical interest as seen from the imaging sensor being defined at the interface between the base frame and the tab, the pad comprising an elastic deformable joint interposed between the base frame and the movable tab, the joint being absorbent in the optical wavelengths of interest, the pad comprising a reflective strip behind the joint from the point of view of the camera, such that the joint forms a dark zone as seen from the camera, the size of the dark zone depending on the pressure exerted on the tab.
(FR) Système de détection de commande gestuelle effectuée par un doigt d'un conducteur d'un véhicule automobile, le système comprenant une palette d'interface (3), une source lumineuse (4) émettant dans l'infrarouge vers la palette, un capteur d'imagerie (5), pour capter les images renvoyées par la palette du côté opposé au conducteur, avec un cadre de base (1) et une plaquette mobile (2), une zone d'intérêt optique vu du capteur d'imagerie étant définie à l'interface entre le cadre de base et la plaquette, la palette comprenant un joint déformable élastique interposé entre le cadre de base et la plaquette mobile, le joint étant absorbant dans les longueurs d'onde optiques d'intérêt, la palette comprenant une bande réfléchissante derrière le joint du point de vue de la caméra, de sorte que le joint forme une zone foncée vu de la caméra, la taille de la zone foncée dépendant de la pression exercée sur la plaquette.
