[0112] 当便携式设备被移动时,例如按照方向1208旋转90度,便携式设备可能停在不同的定向1202,如附图12B所示。 [0112] When the portable device is moved, for example rotated by 90 degrees in the direction 1208, the portable device may stop at different orientations 1202, as shown in Figure 12B. 安装到便携式设备的加速度计可以检测这样的运动,并且将运动数据传输给上述便携式设备的其它组件。 Portable device attached to the accelerometer may detect such a motion, and the motion data to the other components of the portable device. 除了如上參照附图3A和3B所述维持文档页面的定向与运动前定向相对一致地被显示之外,无线接ロ1204-1207可以被重新评估,以确定现有配置对于运动后的定向是否仍然是最佳配置。 In addition to relatively uniformly oriented before being displayed as described above with reference to the figures 3A and 3B, maintaining a document page orientation and movement outside of the radio access ro 1204-1207 may be re-evaluated to determine the existing configuration for the orientation after the movement is still It is the best configuration.

[0113] 在这个实施例中,假设便携式设备顶部和底部的无线接ロ被认为是最佳位置。 [0113] In this embodiment, it is assumed the top and bottom of the portable device radio access ro is considered the best position. 在运动之后(例如,左转90度),最初处于最佳位置的无线接ロ1204-1205可能不再处于最佳位置了。 After motion (e.g., 90 degrees left), initially in the best position of the wireless access ro 1204-1205 may no longer be the best position. 相反,原来不在最佳位置的无线接ロ1206-1207现在可能处在最佳位置。 In contrast, the original is not in the best location of wireless access ro 1206-1207 is now in the best possible position. 因此,响应于检测到运动以及确定运动后的定向,无线接ロ1206和1207可以被启动,如粗体所示,这是因为他们处于最佳位置。 Thus, in response to detection of the movement and determining the orientation of the movement, the radio access ro 1206 and 1207 may be activated, as shown in bold, because they are in the best position. 同样,无线接ロ1204-1205可以被去激励,因为他们不再处于最佳位置。 Similarly, wireless access ro 1204-1205 can be deactivated, because they are no longer in the best position.

[0114] 此外,除了检测便携式设备是否被移动之外,还基于由加速度计所提供的运动数据确定便携式设备是否被用户捡起或手握着。 [0114] In addition to detecting whether the portable device is moved, but also determined that the portable device based on movement data provided by the accelerometer whether the user is picked up or hand. 在一个实施例中,这样的确定可以由类似于附图I所示的结构的连接到加速度计的控制器和/或固件执行。 In one embodiment, such a determination may be connected to the structure I shown accelerometer controller and / or firmware executed by the similar figures. 如果确定便携式设备被用户手握着,则可以进ー步确定或预测拿着便携式设备的用户的手1208-1209的位置。 If it is determined the user holding the portable device, it is possible to determine or predict further into ー holding the position of the user's hand 1208-1209 of the portable device.

[0115] 例如,在附图12A所示的定向1201中,在预测用户的手的位置之后,可能被手1208-1209遮盖的ー个或多个无线接ロ-诸如无线接ロ1207和1208-可以被去激励。 After [0115] For example, in 1201 the orientation shown in the figures 12A, the predicted location of the user's hand, the hand may be covered 1208-1209 ー one or more wireless access ro - ro such as wireless access and 1208- 1207 It can be de-energized. 同样,在附图12B所示的运动后的定向1202中,无线接ロ1204和1205可以被去激励,因为预测它们被用户的手所遮盖。 Similarly, the orientation of the movement 1202 shown in Figure 12B, the radio access ro 1204 and 1205 may be deactivated, since they are covered by the predicted user's hand.

[0116] 附图13是阐述根据本发明一个实施例的用于基于加速度计操作便携式设备的接ロ的示例性进程的流程图。 [0116] FIG 13 is a flowchart according to one embodiment of the present invention is based on an accelerometer connected ro exemplary process of operating the portable device set forth. 示例性进程1300可以由处理逻辑执行,其中处理逻辑可以包括硬件(电路、专用逻辑等)、软件(诸如运行在专用机器上的软件)、或二者的组合。 Exemplary process 1300 may be performed by processing logic, wherein the processing logic may comprise hardware (circuitry, dedicated logic, etc.), software (such as is run on a dedicated machine), or combinations of both. 在ー个实施例中,示例性进程1300包括、但不只限于利用安装到便携式设备的加速度计检测便携式设备的运动,基于由加速度计所提供的运动数据确定运动后的便携式设备的定向,以及启动便携式设备的在所确定定向的情况下最适合的至少ー个接ロ。 In ー embodiment, exemplary process 1300 includes, but is not limited by the mounting motion accelerometer portable device is detected the portable device, determining an orientation of the portable device after the movement based on movement data provided by the accelerometer is provided, and the start the portable device in a case where the determined optimum orientation of the at least one contact ー ro.

[0117] 參照附图13,在方框1301,利用安装到便携式设备的加速度计检测便携式设备的运动,其中便携式设备包括设置在多个位置上的多个接ロ(例如无线接ロ)。 [0117] Referring to FIG. 13, at block 1301, using an accelerometer attached to the portable device is detected motion of the portable device, wherein the portable device comprises a plurality of positions arranged on a plurality of access ro (e.g. radio access ro). 在方框1302,基于由加速度计所提供的运动数据确定运动后便携式设备的定向。 Orientation of the portable device after the movement block 1302, it is determined based on movement data provided by the accelerometer. 在方框1303,可选地,基于由加速度计所提供的运动数据确定便携式设备是否被用户捡起或拿着。 At block 1303, optionally, based on movement data provided by the accelerometer to determine whether the portable device is picked up or held user. 如果是,则预测拿着便携式设备的用户的手的位置。 If so, the predicted location of the user holding the hand of a portable device. 在方框1304,基于所确定的定向,ー个或多个接ロ可以被启动或去激励。 1304, based on the determined orientation, one or more access ー ro may be activated or deactivated in the block. 可选地,某些被预测的用户的手所遮盖的接ロ可以被去激励,而那些没有被遮盖的接ロ被启动。 Alternatively, some predicted the user's hand covered by the access ro can be deactivated, and those who are not covered access ro is activated. 其他操作也可以被执行。 Other operations can also be performed.

[0118] 根据ー个实施例,上述技术也可以被应用到便携式设备的多媒体接ロ。 [0118] According ー embodiment, the techniques described above may also be applied to a portable multimedia device connected ro. 附图14A和14B是阐述根据本发明一个实施例的利用加速度计启动/去激励便携式设备的多媒体接ロ的示例性机制的框图。 Figures 14A and 14B are diagrams illustrating an accelerometer according to the use of a promoter of the present invention embodiment / deactivating mechanism block diagram of an exemplary portable multimedia device is connected ro. 在这个实施例中,作为示例,一个或多个扬声器被用作便携式设备的多媒体接ロ。 In this embodiment, as an example, one or more speakers are used as the portable media device connected ro. 參照附图14A,便携式设备包括设置在便携式设备的不同位置上的多个扬声器1405-1408,并且可选地在便携式设备的显示屏上显示文档页面1403。 14A with reference to the drawings, the portable device comprises a plurality of loudspeakers arranged at different positions on the portable device 1405-1408, and optionally a document page displayed on the display screen 1403 of the portable device. 在运动前的定向1401中,考虑左侧的扬声器1405-1406和右侧的扬声器1407-1408,可以配置音频驱动程序以产生适当的3D环绕声。 In 1401 the orientation before exercise, in consideration of a speaker 1407-1408 1405-1406 left and right of the speaker, the audio driver can be configured to generate a proper 3D surround sound. 当便携式设备被移动时,例如按照运动方向1404旋转90度,通过加速度计以及加速度计的相关联控制器和/或固件检测并确定第二定向1402,如附图14B所示。 When the portable device is moved, for example, according to the direction of movement 1404 is rotated 90 degrees by an accelerometer and an accelerometer associated controller and / or firmware 1402 detect and determine a second orientation, as shown in Figure 14B.

[0119] 响应于检测,除了如上參考附图3A和3B所述保持文档页面1403的定向与运动之前的定向相对一致地被显示之外,扬声器1405-1408的位置可以被重新评估,以确定现有配置对于运动后的定向是否仍然是最佳配置。 [0119] In response to detecting, in addition to above with reference to Figures 3A and 3B before the holding orientation of the document page orientation and movement of the display 1403 is relatively uniformly addition, 1405-1408 position of the speaker may be re-evaluated to determine current there is configured for the movement of the orientation is still the best configuration. 在这个实例中,如附图14B所示,最初的左侧扬声器1405和1406位于底部,而最初的右侧扬声器1407和1408位于顶部。 In this example, as shown in Figure 14B, the first left speaker 1405 and 1406 at the bottom, while the original right speakers 1407 and 1408 at the top. 因而,现有声音条件已经改变,并且声音效果不再处于最佳状态。 Thus, an existing sound conditions have changed, and the sound effect is no longer at its best. 因此,音频驱动程序可能被重新配置以产生与便携式设备运动之前相对相当的声音质量。 Therefore, the audio driver may be reconfigured prior to produce relative motion of the portable device corresponding to the sound quality. 例如,扬声器1405和1407可以被用作左侧扬声器,而扬声器1406和1408可以被用作右侧扬声器,以便产生合适的声音效果。 For example, the speakers 1405 and 1407 may be used as a left speaker, the speaker 1406 and 1408 can be used as a right speaker so as to generate the appropriate sound effects. 其他配置也可以存在。 Other configurations may also exist.

[0120] 附图15是阐述根据本发明一个实施例的用于基于加速度计重新配置多媒体接ロ的示例性进程的流程图。 [0120] Figure 15 is a flow chart for the embodiment of the present invention based on the embodiment of the exemplary accelerometer reconfiguration process multimedia connection according ro forth. 示例性进程1500可以由处理逻辑执行,处理逻辑可以包括硬件(电路、专用逻辑等)、软件(诸如运行在专用机器上的软件)或二者的组合。 Exemplary process 1500 may be performed by processing logic, processing logic may comprise hardware (circuitry, dedicated logic, etc.), software (such as is run on a dedicated machine), or combinations of both. 參照附图15,在方框1501,利用安装到便携式设备的加速度计检测便携式设备的运动,其中便携式设备包括多个设置在不同位置的多媒体接ロ或设备。 Referring to Figure 15, at block 1501, using an accelerometer attached to the portable device is detected motion of the portable device, wherein the portable device comprises a plurality of media disposed at different locations or devices connected ro. 在方框1502,基于由加速度计所提供的运动数据确定便携式设备运动后的定向。 In block 1502, determine the orientation of the portable device after the movement based on movement data provided by the accelerometer. 在方框1503,可以可选地基于所确定的定向启动或去激励ー个或多个多媒体接ロ。 In block 1503, it may alternatively be determined based on the orientation of the promoter or deactivating one or more multimedia connection ー ro. 在方框1504,驱动ー个或多个多媒体设备,以在所确定的运动后定向的情况下产生最佳效果。 In block 1504, the drive ー or more multimedia devices to a case where the orientation of the determined motion produces the best results. 其他操作也可以被执行。 Other operations can also be performed.

[0121] 尽管在本文中以无线接口和音频接ロ作为示例,但并不只限于这两种接ロ。 [0121] Although the wireless access interface and the audio ro herein by way of example, but not limited to these two configurations ro. 其他类型的接ロ-诸如例如视频接ロ、麦克风以及照相机-也可以被应用。 Other types of access ro - ro such as for example a video connection, a microphone and a camera - may also be applied.

[0122] 根据本发明的某些实施例,某些设备只有当机器位于某个定向或位于与它通常被使用时的定向不同的定向时才能被适当地使用。 [0122] According to some embodiments of the present invention, some devices only when the machine is in one orientation or in a normal orientation and is used when the different orientation it can be suitably used. 例如,媒体插入可能要求设备被侧立放置或是正面朝下放置以提供接入。 For example, the media device may be required to be inserted into or placed on its side to provide access facedown. 弹出媒体可能需要设备被侧立放置或是正面朝下放置,以防止媒体被阻碍或掉落地上。 Pop media device may need to be placed on its side or facedown, in order to prevent the media from being hindered or fall to the ground.

[0123] 例如,根据ー个实施例,用户可以通过按压按钮或其他控制启动将媒体从媒体设备或组件的弹出(例如CD从CD ROM设备中弹出)。 [0123] For example, according ー embodiment, the user can start by pressing a button or other control media (e.g., CD ROM devices ejected from CD) eject the media from the device or component. 设备准备弹出媒体或卸下磁盘等。 Equipment ready to eject the media or remove disks. 此时,利用安装到便携式设备的加速度计,控制这个设备的控制模块或应用程序软件可以检测到便携式设备不处于适于弹出媒体的位置。 At this time, the portable device attached to the accelerometer, the control module controls the apparatus or application software can not detect the portable device is in the eject position suitable media. 因此,设备可以通过周期性地或连续地读取来自加速度计的加速度数据,等待単元被定位在适当的位置或定向。 Thus, the apparatus can be continuously read acceleration data from the accelerometer by periodically or, waiting for radiolabeling element is positioned in the proper position or orientation. 此外,与设备关联的应用程序软件可以通知设备的用户(例如弹出消息或是声音警告等)设备需要处于某些位置以完成用户的请求。 In addition, the device associated with the application software can inform the user equipment (e.g., pop-up message or a warning sound, etc.) the device needs to be at certain locations to complete the user's request. 一旦设备处于适当的定向,所请求的操作可以被执行(例如弹出媒体)。 Once the device is in the proper orientation, the requested operation may be performed (e.g., media eject).

[0124] 同样地,根据另ー实施例,如果用户不重新定向单元,则加速度计可以被用于放弃操作。 [0124] Also, according to another embodiment ー embodiment, if the user does not re-orientation means, the accelerometer may be used to abort the operation. 如果设备在一段时间内不被重新定位到适当的或预定的位置,则设备可以取消所请求的操作或者向用户提供进ー步的指令。 If the device is not re-positioned to an appropriate position or at a predetermined period of time, the device can cancel the requested operation or the intake ー further providing instructions to the user. 根据另ー实施例,加速度计可以被用于检測定向,或者为了使能和/或禁用安装在设备侧边或底部的输入设备。 According to another embodiment ー embodiment, an accelerometer can be used to detect the orientation, input devices or to enable and / or disable devices installed in the side or bottom. 例如,在设备的底部可以存在弹出按钮,这个按钮当设备竖立时被禁用。 For example, there may eject button at the bottom of the device, this button is disabled when the device is upright. 这样,用户将设备放置在桌上或用户的膝盖上时,该按钮不被启动。 In this way, the user device is placed on a desk or the user's knee, the button is not activated.

[0125] 附图24是阐述根据本发明另ー实施例的启动或去激励设备的示例性进程的流程图。 [0125] Figure 24 is a forth embodiment of the boot according to the present invention further ー flowchart of an exemplary embodiment of the process or device de-energized. 示例性进程可以由处理逻辑执行,处理逻辑可以包括硬件(电路、专用逻辑等)、软件(诸如运行在专用机器上的软件)或二者的组合。 Exemplary process may be performed by processing logic, processing logic may comprise hardware (circuitry, dedicated logic, etc.), software (such as is run on a dedicated machine), or a combination of both. 參考附图24,在方框2401,用于将便携式设备的组件从第一运行状态变换到第二运行状态的请求被接收(例如,弹出便携式存储设备)。 24 with reference to the accompanying drawings request, at block 2401, the component of the portable apparatus for converting from a first operating state to the second operational state is received (e.g., pop-up portable storage device). 在方框2402,利用安装到便携式设备的加速度计,确定便携式设备是否根据预定的适合于第二运行状态的定向被定位。 In block 2402, using an accelerometer attached to the portable device, it determines whether the portable device is positioned according to a predetermined orientation adapted to the second operating state.

[0126] 在方框2403,如果基于加速度计所提供的加速度信息确定便携式设备按照预定的定向或位置被定位,则便携式设备的组件随后被从第一运行状态变换到第二运行状态(例如,打开CD ROM的托盘)。 [0126] In block 2403, if the acceleration information provided by the accelerometer-based portable device is positioned is determined according to a predetermined orientation or position, the assembly of the portable device is then converted from a first operating state to the second operating state (e.g., open the CD ROM tray). 然而,如果便携式设备不在预定的位置或定向,则在方框2404,所请求的变换被拒绝或挂起,从而使便携式设备的组件依然停留在第一运行状态或是其他状态(例如第三态:tri-State等)。 However, if the portable device is not in a predetermined position or orientation, then at block 2404, the request is denied or suspended transformation, so that the portable device components still remain in the first operating state or another state (e.g. third state : tri-State, etc.). 同时,利用加速度计周期性或连续地监视便携式设备的位置或定向,其中一旦便携式设备的位置或定向被检测为位于适当的位置或定向,则所请求的操作可以被重新开始。 Meanwhile, using an accelerometer periodically or continuously monitor the position or orientation of the portable device, wherein once the position or orientation of the portable device is detected to be in the proper position or orientation, then the requested operation can be resumed. 如果便携式设备不在适当的位置或定向长达ー个预定的时间周期,则所请求的操作可以被放弃。 If the portable device is not in the proper position or orientation as long ー predetermined period of time, then the requested operation may be discarded. 可选地,在方框2405,可以产生通知,以告知便携式设备的用户将便携式设备放到某些位置,以便完成所请求的操作。 Alternatively, at block 2405, a notification may be generated to inform the user of the portable device to the portable device into certain locations in order to complete the requested operation. 其他操作也可以被执行。 Other operations can also be performed.

[0127] 基于加谏度计的其他应用 [0127] Other applications based on the meter plus remonstrance

[0128] 根据本发明另ー实施例,加速度计可以被用于检测和确定携帯其中装有加速度计的便携式设备的用户的活动。 [0128] According to embodiments of the present invention further ー embodiment, an accelerometer can be used to detect and determine a user carrying a portable device Bands wherein activity with an accelerometer. 根据一个实施例,例如,被安装到可以被用户拿着的便携式设备中的加速度计可以检测用户在拿着便携式设备时抖动。 According to one embodiment, for example, an accelerometer is mounted to the portable device may be held in a user can detect when the user holds the portable shaking device. 在这个实施例中,便携式设备可以是数字多媒体播放器(例如MP3播放器)。 In this embodiment, the portable device may be a digital media player (e.g., MP3 player). 安装到便携式设备的加速度计可以检测由用户活动所引起的便携式设备的运动可能是反复性的。 Mounted to the portable device accelerometer may detect the motion of the portable device by the user may be caused by the activities of repetitive.

[0129] 响应于检测,便携式设备的运动的重复率可以被确定,例如,通过连接到加速度计的控制器和/或固件,类似于附图I所示的配置。 [0129] In response to detecting the repetition rate of movement of the portable device may be determined, for example, by an accelerometer connected to the controller and / or firmware, similar to the configuration drawings shown in FIG. I. 一旦运动的重复率被确定,应用程序软件(例如Microsoft的Windows媒体播放器或Real Networks的实时播放器(real player)等)可以调整当前正被便携式设备播放的多媒体内容的节奏,使其相对匹配所确定的运动重复率。 Once the repetition rate of movement is determined, application software (such as Microsoft's Windows Media Player or Real Networks Real-time player (real player), etc.) can adjust the tempo currently being portable devices to play multimedia content, making it relatively match repetition rate determined motion. 因此,例如,可以调整当前被MP3播放器所播放的音乐的速度,以与拿着MP3播放器的用户的抖动率相对匹配。 Thus, for example, you can adjust the speed of the music currently being played by the MP3 player to the dither rate of the MP3 player of the user holding the opposite match.

[0130] 此外,根据另ー实施例,应用程序软件可以进ー步选择和播放最适合于所确定的用户活动(例如抖动率)的多媒体内容。 [0130] Further, according to another embodiment ー, the application software can be selected and played further into ー best suited to user activities (e.g. jitter rate) determined embodiment multimedia content. 在一个实施例中,用户可以通过用户接ロ配置多媒体播放器,从而在某些环境下可以选择和播放某些类型的多媒体内容。 In one embodiment, the user may then configure a multimedia player ro by the user can be selected and played in a certain type of multimedia content under certain circumstances. 因此,当加速度计和相关的控制器和/或固件检测到用户正在执行某些类型的活动时,相关类型的多媒体内容可以被相应地选择和播放。 Thus, when the accelerometer and associated controller and / or firmware detects that the user is performing certain types of activities related to the type of multimedia content may be selected accordingly and playback.

[0131] 附图16是阐述根据本发明一个实施例的用于基于加速度计播放多媒体内容的示例性进程的流程图。 [0131] Figure 16 is a flowchart for a process based on the exemplary embodiment of an accelerometer playing multimedia contents according to one embodiment of the present invention will be explained. 示例性进程1600可以由处理逻辑执行,处理逻辑可以包括硬件(电路、专用逻辑等)、软件(诸如运行在专用机器上的软件)或二者的组合。 Exemplary process 1600 may be performed by processing logic, processing logic may comprise hardware (circuitry, dedicated logic, etc.), software (such as is run on a dedicated machine), or combinations of both. 參照附图16,在方框1601,利用安装到便携式设备的加速度计检测便携式设备的运动,其中便携式设备的运动每隔一定时间周期就重复。 Referring to Figure 16, at block 1601, using an accelerometer attached to the portable device is detected motion of the portable device, the portable device wherein the motion cycle is repeated at regular intervals. 在方框1602,基于由加定的重复率相对匹配的节奏的数字多媒体内容被选择和播放。 In block 1602, based digital multimedia content by the rhythm is relatively definite repetition rate matching is selected and played. 在方框1604,当前播放的多媒体内容的节奏被调整以相对匹配所确定的运动重复率。 In block 1604, the rhythm of the multimedia content currently playing is adjusted to relatively match the determined motion repetition rate. 其他操作也可以被执行。 Other operations can also be performed.

[0132] 根据本发明的另ー实施例,加速度计可以被用于检测便携式设备是否正在移动(例如被用户携带着)以及便携式设备是否应该被置于适当的运行状态。 [0132] According to another embodiment of the present invention ー embodiment, an accelerometer can be used to detect whether the portable device is moving (e.g., the user is carried), and whether the portable device should be placed in an appropriate operating state. 根据ー个实施例,当便携式设备处于非活动状态并且通过安装到便携式设备的加速度计检测到便携式设备正在移动时,便携式设备可以被置于相对较低功耗模式,诸如例如休眠模式。 According ー embodiment, when the portable device is inactive and the counter detects that the portable device is moved by an accelerometer attached to the portable device, the portable device may be placed in a relatively low power consumption mode, for example, such as a sleep mode. 例如,顶盖合上的膝上型计算机可以被认为处于非活动状态。 For example, a laptop computer on the top cover closed can be considered to be inactive. 由于膝上型计算机电脑的顶盖是合上的,所以用户不能主动操作膝上型计算机。 Because laptop computers are on the cap engaged, the user can not actively operating a laptop computer. 可选地,当膝上型计算机的桌面被锁定时,它被认为处于非活动状态。 Alternatively, when the laptop computer's desktop is locked, it is considered to be inactive. 其他情况也可以被认为是非活动状态,这可以是用户可配置的。 Other circumstances may also be considered a non-active state, which may be user configurable. 因此,膝上型计算机可以被置于低功耗模式。 Thus, a laptop computer can be placed in a low power mode. 此外,如果膝上型计算机被确定为是移动的(通过加速度计),则向永久存储设备(例如硬盘驱动器)写任何数据可能是不安全的。 In addition, if the laptop is determined to be moving, the write any data to the permanent storage device (e.g. hard disk drive) (by accelerometers) may be unsafe. 因此,永久存储设备的读/写头可以被停放到安全位置,而不向永久存储设备写数据。 Thus, the permanent storage device read / write head can be parked into the safe position, without writing data to the permanent storage device.

[0133] 根据ー个实施例,如果基于由安装到便携式设备的加速度计所提供的数据确定便携式设备处于非活动状态,并且便携式设备不是正在移动,则可以使便携式设备进入休眠模式,其中系统存储器的内容可以被交換到永久存储设备(例如硬盘驱动器)中。 [0133] According ー embodiments, if based on the data from the installation to a portable device provided by the accelerometer to determine whether the portable device is in the inactive state, and the portable device is not moving, it is possible to make the portable device enters a sleep mode, wherein the system memory the content may be switched to a permanent storage device (e.g. hard disk drive). 由于便携式设备没有移动,因此向永久存储设备写数据是相对安全的。 Since the portable device is not moved, to write data to the permanent storage device is relatively safe.

[0134] 附图17是阐述根据本发明一个实施例的用于便携式设备的电源管理的示例性进程的流程图。 [0134] Figure 17 is a flowchart of an exemplary process for power management of a portable device according to one embodiment of the present invention are set forth. 示例性进程1700可以由处理逻辑执行,处理逻辑可以包括硬件(电路、专用逻辑等)、软件(诸如运行在专用机器上的软件)或二者的组合。 Exemplary process 1700 may be performed by processing logic, processing logic may comprise hardware (circuitry, dedicated logic, etc.), software (such as is run on a dedicated machine), or combinations of both. 參照附图17,在方框1701,确定便携式设备是否处于非活动状态。 Referring to Figure 17, at block 1701, it is determined whether the portable device is in the inactive state. 例如,当便携式设备的顶盖合上或它的桌面被锁定时,便携式设备被认为处于非活动状态。 For example, when the upper closing cover of the portable device or its desktop is locked, the portable device is considered inactive. 在方框1702,利用安装到便携式设备的加速度计检测便携式设备以确定便携式设备是否正在移动(例如便携式设备是否被用户携帯)。 In block 1702, is mounted to the portable device using an accelerometer to determine whether the portable device is detected the portable device is moving (e.g., whether the portable device carried by a user Bands). 在方框1703,如果便携式设备正在移动,则使便携式设备进入相对较低功耗模式,并且不把系统存储器的内容交換到永久存储设备中。 In block 1703, if the portable device is moving, so that the portable device entered the relatively lower power consumption mode and is not exchanging the contents of system memory to the persistent storage. 否则,在方框1704,如果便携式设备正在移动,通过将系统存储器的内容交換到永久存储设备,使便携式设备进入睡眠模式。 Otherwise, at block 1704, if the portable device is moving, by exchanging the contents of system memory to permanent storage device, so that the portable device to enter a sleep mode. 其他操作也可以被执行。 Other operations can also be performed.

[0135] 根据本发明的另ー实施例,为了确定是否正确输入密码,加速度计可以被用于检测便携式设备是否按照特定方向运动。 [0135] According to another embodiment ー embodiment of the present invention, in order to determine whether the input password is correct, an accelerometer may be used to detect whether the portable device moving in a certain direction. 在一个实施例中,当便携式设备的用户被提示输入密码时,作为输入密码的一部分,用户必须朝ー个或几个方向移动便携式设备。 In one embodiment, the portable device when the user is prompted for a password as part of the password, the user must ー towards several directions or movement of the portable device. 安装到便携式设备的加速度计可以检测这样的运动,并且运动方向可以被确定,例如,通过相关的控制器和/或固件。 Portable device attached to the accelerometer may detect such a motion, and the motion direction may be determined, e.g., by the associated controller and / or firmware. 如果运动方向相对匹配预定方向,则认为密码已经被正确“输入” 了。 If the moving direction relatively matches the predetermined direction, it is considered the correct password has been "entered" the. [0136] 根据ー个可选实施例,用户可能被要求在便携式设备上输入密码的第一部分。 [0136] The first portion of the input password on a portable device according ー optional embodiment, the user may be required. 然后,用户被要求根据特定方向移动便携式设备。 Then, the user is required to move the portable device according to a particular direction. 此后,用户被要求输入密码的第二部分(例如密码的其余部分)。 Thereafter, a second portion of the user is required to enter a password (e.g. the rest of the password). 因此,输入的密码以及便携式设备的特定运动的组合构造完整的密码。 Thus, the complete configuration password and specific combinations of input motion of the portable device password. 也可以存在其他配置。 Other configurations may also be present.

[0137] 附图18是阐述根据本发明一个实施例的用于处理密码的示例性进程的流程图。 [0137] Figure 18 is a flowchart of an exemplary embodiment of a process for processing password according to the present embodiment of the invention as set forth. 示例性进程1800可以由处理逻辑执行,处理逻辑可以包括硬件(电路、专用逻辑等)、软件(诸如运行在专用机器上的软件)或二者的组合。 Exemplary process 1800 may be performed by processing logic, processing logic may comprise hardware (circuitry, dedicated logic, etc.), software (such as is run on a dedicated machine), or combinations of both. 參照附图18,在方框1801,用户被要求在便携式设备上输入密码。 Referring to Figure 18, at block 1801, the user is required to enter a password on a portable device. 在方框1802中,利用安装到便携式设备的加速度计检测便携式设备是否被移动。 In block 1802, using an accelerometer attached to the portable device is detected whether the portable device is moved. 在方框1803,基于由加速度计所提供的运动数据确定运动方向。 In block 1803, determines the direction of movement based on movement data provided by the accelerometer. 在方框1804,确定便携式设备是否已经按照预定方向被移动。 In block 1804, it is determined whether the portable device has been moved in the predetermined direction. 在方框1805,基于运动方向与预定方向是否相对匹配,发布提示以指明密码是否被正确“输入”。 At block 1805, based on whether a predetermined direction relative to the direction of motion and match tips to indicate whether the password is correct "input." 其他操作也可以被执行。 Other operations can also be performed.

[0138] 根据本发明的另ー实施例,加速度计可以被用于检测和记录便携式设备的一系列运动,其中所记录的运动数据随后(例如离线)可以被用于重现运动历史。 [0138] According to another embodiment of the present invention ー embodiment, an accelerometer can be used to detect and record a sequence of movements of the portable device, wherein the motion data is then recorded (e.g., offline) may be used to reproduce the motion history. 在一个实施例中,当便携式设备在一段时间内被移动时,安装到便携式设备的加速度计检测和记录这样的运动。 In one embodiment, when the portable device is moved over a period of time, the mounted accelerometers such motion detection and recording of the portable device. 在运动过程中,由加速度计所记录的运动数据可以被存储在便携式设备的存储设备(例如硬盘驱动器)中。 During the movement, the motion recorded by the accelerometer data may be stored in a storage device of the portable device (e.g., hard drive). 可选地,运动数据可以在运动期间通过网络(例如无线网络)被发送到远程设备。 Alternatively, motion data may be sent to a remote device via a network (e.g., wireless network) during motion. 随后,在运动之后,可以利用由加速度计所提供的运动数据,重现表示这段时间上的运动的轨迹。 Subsequently, after the motion, may be utilized by the motion data provided by the accelerometer, to reproduce on the trajectory represents a period of time.

[0139] 这在用户希望以后重新绘制过山车运行轨迹时是非常有用的。 When the [0139] This repaint roller coaster running track after the user wants to be very useful. 例如,用户可以携带安装有加速度计的便携式设备并坐上过山车。 For example, a user may carry the portable device mounted with an accelerometer and roller coaster. 在乘车期间,加速度计可以检测运动数据并将它们存储在存储设备中,或是可选地,加速度计把运动数据通过网络传送到远程设备。 During the ride, the accelerometer may detect the motion data and stores them in the storage device, or alternatively, the movement of the accelerometer data to a remote device via a network. 在乘坐之后,运动数据可以被用于重现过山车运行的轨迹。 After the ride, the motion data can be used to reproduce the trajectory of roller coaster ride. 过山车只是被用作一个示例,上述技术可以被应用于其他场合。 Coaster just being used as an example, the techniques described above may be applied to other applications. 例如,为了绘制其他地区的地图,携帯加速度计的用户可以开车去那些地方进行测量,其中加速度计被安装到便携式设备或被安装到汽车上。 For example, to draw maps of other areas, carrying Bands accelerometer, users can drive to those places measured, in which the accelerometer is mounted to a portable device or mounted to the vehicle. 然后,可以利用在开车过程中由加速度计所收集的运动数据绘制地图。 Then, the drive may be utilized during the movement data collected by the accelerometer mapping.

[0140] 附图19是阐述根据本发明一个实施例的用于利用加速度计重现运动轨迹的示例性进程的流程图。 [0140] FIG 19 is a flowchart of an exemplary embodiment of a process for utilizing an accelerometer to reproduce trajectory forth embodiment of the present invention. 示例性进程1900可以由处理逻辑执行,处理逻辑可以包括硬件(电路、专用逻辑等)、软件(诸如运行在专用机器上的软件)、或二者的组合。 Exemplary process 1900 may be performed by processing logic, processing logic may comprise hardware (circuitry, dedicated logic, etc.), software (such as is run on a dedicated machine), or combinations of both. 參照附图19,在方框1901,利用安装到便携式设备的加速度计检测便携式设备的一系列运动。 Referring to Figure 19, at block 1901, a sequence of movements using an accelerometer attached to the portable device is detected portable device. 在上述示例中,汽车可以被认为是便携式设备。 In the above example, the car may be considered to be a portable device. 在方框1902中,这ー系列运动中的每ー个运动的运动方向以及每个运动之间的时间被确定。 In block 1902, the time between the motion direction ー this ー series each movement and each motion are determined. 在方框1903,信息可以被存储在便携式设备的存储器中。 At block 1903, information may be stored in a memory of the portable device. 可选地,信息也可以通过网络被动态地传输到远程设备(例如无线网络)。 Alternatively, the information may be dynamically transmitted to a remote device (e.g., wireless network) via a network. 随后,在方框1904,可以利用所存储的运动数据重现表示运动历史的轨迹。 Subsequently, at block 1904, the motion data may be reproduced using the stored history indicates trajectory. 其他操作也可以被执行。 Other operations can also be performed.

[0141] 利用加速度计的运动补偿 [0141] The motion compensation using an accelerometer

[0142] 根据本发明的另ー实施例,加速度计可以被用于检测便携式设备的运动,并且可响应于检测应用运动补偿。 [0142] According to another embodiment of the present invention ー embodiment, it may be an accelerometer for detecting movement of the portable device, and in response to detecting the motion compensation applications. 例如,安装到便携式设备的加速度计可以检测使用便携式设备(例如阅读显示在便携式设备的显示屏上的电子文档)的用户可能正乘坐在颠簸的汽车上。 For example, to install the portable device's accelerometer can be detected using a portable device (such as reading an electronic document displayed on the display of the portable device) the user may be riding on a bumpy car. 响应于检测,可以对所显示的文档执行运动补偿,使得电子文档可以相对保持在对于用户的眼睛ー样的位置。 In response to the detection, motion compensation may be performed on the document displayed, so that the electronic document may be relatively maintained in the user's eye ー kind of position. [0143] 在一个实施例中,可以通过适当地对从加速度计所接收的信号求积分来计算显示器平面内作为时间的函数的显示器平台的位置。 [0143] In one embodiment, the position may be calculated within the display plane of the display platform as a function of time by appropriately integrating the signal received from the accelerometer. 随后,图像在显示屏上被作为时间的函数垂直和水平地变换,以保持图像位置在空间中充分固定,而与显示器平面内显示器的运动无关。 Subsequently, the image on the display screen as a function of time transformation vertically and horizontally, in order to maintain adequate image position fixed in space, while within the display plane of the display and independent movement. 可以通过由加速度计所提供的运动数据的相对较高频率分量来表示这样的运动(例如,诸如颠簸之类的突发运动)。 Such movement may be represented (e.g., sudden movement, such as bumps or the like) by a relatively higher frequency components provided by the accelerometer motion data. 为了防止当汽车上山和下山或绕圈时图像离开屏幕,显示器运动的低频率分量-诸如由汽车的前进速度所引起的那些-可以不被补偿。 In order to prevent the image from the screen when the car uphill and downhill or windings, the display low-frequency component motion - such as those by the forward speed of the vehicle caused - it can not be compensated. 同样,当乘车在颠簸的平台上时,这种技术也可以被应用到通过便携式设备玩的电子游戏中。 Similarly, when traveling on a bumpy platform, this technology can also be applied to a portable device by playing video games.

[0148] 例如,用户可以通过轻敲便携式设备的侧边,在便携式设备的显示屏上“晃动”指针。 [0148] For example, the user may tap the side of the portable device, on a display screen of the portable device, "fluctuation" pointer. 安装到便携式设备的加速度计可以检测这样的引起便携式设备运动的力。 Portable device attached to the accelerometer may detect such a force causing movement of the portable device. 力的方向和幅值可以基于加速度计所提供的运动数据确定。 The magnitude and direction of the force may be based on the movement data provided by the accelerometer is determined. 当为应用使能这项功能时,在设备侧面的轻拍将使鼠标以类似于轻拍小物体并使其滑过平面上一段距离的方式移动。 When this feature is enabled for the application, the tap side of the device will cause the mouse to similar small object tapping slides and allowed to move for some distance on a plane manner. 同样,这种技术可以被应用在多种其它应用中,诸如例如视频游戏(例如高尔夫球、保龄球、网球等)。 Again, this technique can be applied in a variety of other applications, such as such as video games (e.g., golf, bowling, tennis etc.).
