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 (P, F) of a motor vehicle driver, comprising an interface pad (3), a light source (4) emitting an optical beam in the infrared band towards the interface pad, an imaging sensor (5) for capturing the images returned by the interface 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 movable tab, the interface pad comprising an elastic deformable joint interposed between the base frame and the movable tab, the deformable joint comprising a first inclined face (13), such that an optical path passing through the first inclined face is proportionately modified by the deformation of the joint under the effect of the movement of the movable tab.
(FR) Système de détection de commande gestuelle effectuée par un doigt (P, F) d'un conducteur d'un véhicule automobile, comprenant une palette d'interface (3), une source lumineuse (4) émettant un faisceau optique dans la bande infrarouge vers la palette d'interface, un capteur d'imagerie (5), pour capter les images renvoyées par la palette d'interface 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 mobile, la palette d'interface comprenant un joint déformable élastique interposé entre le cadre de base et la plaquette mobile, le joint déformable comprenant un premier pan incliné (13), de sorte qu'un parcours optique passant par le premier pan incliné est proportionnellement modifié par la déformation du joint sous l'effet du déplacement de la plaquette mobile.
