Title
(EN) METHOD AND TOUCH INSTRUMENT FOR UPLINK-BASED ZERO ACTIVATION FORCE
(FR) PROCÉDÉ ET INSTRUMENT TACTILE POUR FORCE D'ACTIVATION NULLE BASÉE SUR LA LIAISON MONTANTE
Abstract
(EN)
Methods for uplink-based zero activation force are performed by systems and devices. A touch instrument interfaces with a touch device, and includes antennas that receive communication signals from the touch device. The touch instrument also includes a processing circuit that is electrically coupled to the antennas. The processing circuit determines an orientation of the touch instrument with respect to the touch device. A distance between the touch device and the touch instrument is then determined based on the orientation and a communication signal from the touch device received by the antennas, and an activation command is generated when the distance indicates a touch/contact. The activation command, transmitted to the touch device, causes the touch device to perform an inking operation. When the distance determined indicates a hover, and not touching/contact, a deactivation command is generated. Distance is also determined based on touch instrument orientation.

Selon l'invention, des procédés pour une force d'activation nulle basée sur la liaison montante sont effectués par des systèmes et des dispositifs. Un instrument tactile s'interface avec un dispositif tactile, et contient des antennes qui reçoivent des signaux de communication provenant du dispositif tactile. L'instrument tactile contient également un circuit de traitement qui est couplé électriquement aux antennes. Le circuit de traitement détermine une orientation de l'instrument tactile par rapport au dispositif tactile. Une distance entre le dispositif tactile et l'instrument tactile est ensuite déterminée en fonction de l'orientation et d'un signal de communication provenant du dispositif tactile reçu par les antennes, et une commande d'activation est produite lorsque la distance indique un toucher/contact. La commande d'activation, transmise au dispositif tactile, provoque que le dispositif tactile effectue une opération d'encrage. Lorsque la distance déterminée indique un survol, et pas de toucher/contact, une commande de désactivation est produite. La distance est également déterminée en fonction de l'orientation de l'instrument tactile.
