Title
(EN) SYSTEMS AND METHODS OF USER LOCALIZATION
(FR) SYSTÈMES ET PROCÉDÉS DE LOCALISATION D'UTILISATEUR
Abstract
(EN)
Systems and methods are disclosed in which a playback device transmits a first sound signal including a predetermined waveform. In one example, the playback device receives a second sound signal including at least one reflection of the first sound signal. The second sound signal is processed to determine a location of a person relative to the playback device, and a characteristic of audio reproduction by the playback device is selected, based on the determined location of the person.
(FR)
L'invention concerne des systèmes et des procédés dans lesquels un dispositif de lecture transmet un premier signal sonore comprenant une forme d'onde prédéterminée. Dans un exemple, le dispositif de lecture reçoit un second signal sonore comprenant au moins une réflexion du premier signal sonore. Le second signal sonore est traité pour déterminer un emplacement d'une personne par rapport au dispositif de lecture, et une caractéristique de reproduction audio par le dispositif de lecture est sélectionnée, sur la base de l'emplacement déterminé de la personne.
