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 at least one finger (P) of a motor vehicle driver, comprising at least one interface pad (3), a light source (4) emitting an infrared optical beam towards the interface pad, an imaging sensor (5) for capturing the images returned by the interface pad on the side away from the driver, the interface pad having a base frame (1) and a movable tab (2) that is movable between a rest position and at least one activation position, the base frame comprising a first inclined edge and the movable tab comprising a second inclined edge, said first and second inclined edges forming a contrasting region of interest as seen from the imaging sensor, and being separated by a space or moved together depending on the position of the mobile tab, and providing a contrast effect for the images from the interface pad that are captured by the imaging sensor.
(FR) Système de détection de commande gestuelle effectuée par au moins un doigt (P) d'un conducteur d'un véhicule automobile, comprenant au moins une palette d'interface (3), une source lumineuse (4) émettant un faisceau optique infrarouge vers la palette d'interface, un capteur d'imagerie (5), afin de capter les images renvoyées par la palette d'interface du côté opposé au conducteur, la palette d'interface comprenant un cadre de base (1) et une plaquette mobile (2) déplaçable entre une position de repos et au moins une position d'activation, le cadre de base comprenant un premier bord incliné et la plaquette mobile comprenant un second bord incliné, lesdits premier et second bords inclinés formant une zone d'intérêt de contraste vu du capteur d'imagerie, et sont séparés par un espace ou rapprochés selon la position de la plaquette mobile, et fournissent un effet de contraste pour les images de la palette d'interface captées par le capteur d'imagerie.
