Detailed Description

The embodiments described below in the specification may be implemented as individual embodiments or may be combined to form other embodiments according to actual needs.

Fig. 1 is a block diagram of a portable electronic device 100 according to an embodiment of the invention. Fig. 2 is a schematic diagram of the portable electronic device 100. The portable electronic device 100 includes a main body 103, a processor 102, a first sensor 104, a second sensor 106, and a display unit 108. The processor 102 is electrically coupled to the first sensor 104, the second sensor 106, and the display unit 108. The first sensor 104 or the second sensor 106 includes an edge sensor 40 disposed adjacent an edge of the body 103. In one embodiment, as shown in FIG. 1, the first sensor 104 and the second sensor 106 each comprise an edge sensor 40. The display unit 108 includes a touch display screen 109 disposed on the main body 103. For example, the portable electronic device 100 may be a smart phone or a tablet. The portable electronic device 100 includes a first side S1, a second side S2, a third side S3, and a fourth side S4. The first side S1 and the second side S2 are short sides of the portable electronic device 100, and the third side S3 and the fourth side S4 are long sides of the portable electronic device 100. The first sensor 104 and the second sensor 106 are exemplified by pressure sensors, resistance sensors, optical sensors, or ultrasonic sensors. The edge sensor 40 may be implemented by at least one of a pressure sensor and a touch sensor or other types of sensors. Based on the practical requirement of the present invention, the first sensor 104 or the second sensor 106 may also be disposed on at least one short side of the electronic device, but not limited thereto.

The processor 102 includes a central processing unit (cpu) of the portable electronic device 100, and controls the overall operation of the portable electronic device 100. In certain embodiments, the processor 102 accomplishes this by executing software or firmware stored in a memory (not shown). The processor 102 may be or include one or more programmable general or special purpose microprocessors, Digital Signal Processors (DSPs), programmable logic devices (ASICs), Programmable Logic Devices (PLDs), or the like, or a combination of such devices.

The touch display screen 109 may include a Liquid Crystal Display (LCD), a plasma display, a vacuum fluorescent display, a light-emitting diode (LED) display, a field emission display, and/or other suitable forms of display configured to display a user interface.

The first sensor 104 and the second sensor 106 are disposed on the third side 103 and the fourth side S4 of the portable electronic device 100. The first sensor 104 and the second sensor 106 each include a plurality of sensing elements arranged in a line. The user may trigger the first sensor 104 or/and the second sensor 106 to output corresponding signals by touching, pressing, sliding, toggling, or squeezing (squeezing) at least one long side of the portable electronic device 100. When the user triggers the first sensor 104 or/and the second sensor 106, the processor 102 determines the force applied to the sensing element according to the output signal of the sensing element of the first sensor 104 or/and the second sensor 106, and determines the position of the force applied to the long side of the portable electronic device 100 according to the position of the sensing element triggered by the user. The user's triggering actions include squeezing the portable electronic device 100 (e.g., to simultaneously press the first sensor 104 and the second sensor 106), sliding on the long side of the portable electronic device 100, pressing, and edge toggling.

Referring to tables 1-1, 1-2, and 1-3, the corresponding operations of the portable electronic device 100 are performed according to the user's actions and the state of the portable electronic device 100.

TABLE 1-1

Tables 1 to 2

Tables 1 to 3

When the user dials the edge of the portable electronic device 100 in different states of the portable electronic device 100 (user action 1), the corresponding operation is executed. For example, when the screen of the portable electronic device 100 is turned on/off (state B/a), the camera is turned on (state C), the user watches a movie (state D), listens to music (state E), plays a game on the portable electronic device 100 (state F), the user is on a call (state G), an alarm clock/alarm sounds (state H), the user has an incoming call (state I), the user writes an Instant Message (IM)/Message (state J) using an Input Method Editor (IME), the user does not write IM/Message (state K) using an IME, or the user browses a web/photo (state L), the user toggles an edge to trigger the portable electronic device 100 to display an edge sensing panel on the touch display screen 109. Referring to fig. 3, fig. 3 is a schematic diagram illustrating the portable electronic device 100 when the user dials the edge. The user action "toggle edge" indicates that when the user holds the portable electronic device 100, a finger (for example, a thumb) of the user touches a long side of the portable electronic device 100 and moves from the back cover 101 to the screen along the direction D1. Based on the user action "dial edge", at least one sensing element of the first sensor 104 or the second sensor 106 is triggered to output a corresponding sensing signal and the edge of the touch display screen 109 outputs a corresponding touch signal. Therefore, in a specific time period, the processor 102 can receive the sensing signal and the touch signal and accordingly determine the user action as a "toggle edge". Fig. 4A and 4B are schematic views of an edge sensing panel according to an embodiment of the invention. The edge sensing panel includes a first display region 110 and a second display region 112. The first display area 110 and the second display area 112 are displayed on the touch display screen 109 and are close to the long sides S3 and S4. The first display area 110 and the second display area 112 display the shortcut icon 114 and the information 116 so that the user can easily touch the shortcut icon 114 and the information 116. Shortcut schema 114 corresponds to an application, such as "Instagram", "Facebook", or "Line". When the user touches the shortcut icon 114, the corresponding application is started. The information 116 includes, but is not limited to, images, weather, or news. In one embodiment, when the user holds the portable electronic device 100 with the left hand and uses the left thumb to swipe the edge on the third side S3, the touch display screen 109 displays the edge sensing panel. In the edge sensing panel, a shortcut icon 114 is displayed in the first display area 110 and information 116 is displayed in the second display area 112 (as shown in FIG. 4A). When the user holds the portable electronic device 100 with the right hand and dials the edge on the fourth side S4 with the right thumb, the touch display screen 109 displays the edge sensing panel. In the edge sensing panel, information 116 is displayed in the first display area 110 and a shortcut icon 114 is displayed in the second display area 112 (as shown in FIG. 4B). In one embodiment, an indicator is displayed on one of the shortcut icons 114 or any of the information 116. The user can move the indicator by sliding and pressing the long side of the portable electronic device 100 and select and execute one of the shortcut icons 114 or display a message 116.

Based on the at least one finger position and the palm position sensed by the first sensor 104 and the second sensor 106, the portable electronic device 100 can recognize whether the portable electronic device 100 is being held by the right hand or the left hand. Specifically, when the sensor senses a point-like touch point (with a smaller area), the processor 102 determines the point-like touch point as a finger touch, and the position of the point-like touch point is a finger position. When the sensor senses a sheet-like touch point (with a larger area), the processor 102 determines that the sheet-like touch point is a palm touch and the position of the sheet-like touch point is a palm position. Thus, based on the palm position, the processor 102 can determine a point-like touch point located above the sheet-like touch point, i.e., the thumb position.

According to the holding gesture of the user, the processor 102 may correspondingly control the position of the touch display screen 109 for displaying the keyboard image, so as to facilitate the operation of the user. For example, when the user holds the portable electronic device 100 with the right hand (with the fingers on the third side S3 and the palm on the fourth side S4), the touch display screen 109 displays the keyboard image in the area adjacent to the fourth side S4, as shown in fig. 29, so as to be close to the user' S right thumb. In contrast, when the user holds the portable electronic device 100 with the left hand (with the fingers on the fourth side S4 and the palm on the third side S3), the touch display screen 109 displays the keyboard image in the area adjacent to the third side S3, as shown in fig. 30, to be close to the user' S left thumb. In this way, the user can easily and accurately tap the keyboard with the thumb.

When the user squeezes the portable electronic device 100 in different states of the portable electronic device 100 (user action 2), a corresponding operation is performed. For example, when the camera of the portable electronic device 100 is activated (state C), the user squeezes the portable electronic device 100 to take a picture or record a video. When the user watches a movie (state D), listens to music (state E), or plays a game on the portable electronic device 100 (state F), the user squeezes the portable electronic device 100 to pause/play the movie, music, or game. When the alarm/sound is sounded (state H), the user squeezes the portable electronic device 100 to delay the alarm/sound. When the user has an incoming call (state I), the user squeezes the portable electronic device 100 to answer the incoming call. Referring to fig. 5, a schematic diagram of the portable electronic device 100 when being squeezed by a user is shown. The user action "squeeze" indicates that when the user holds the portable electronic device 100, the user firmly presses the opposite long sides of the portable electronic device 100 with fingers or hands. When the signal levels of the sensing element output signals of the first sensor 104 and the second sensor 106 simultaneously exceed a force threshold, the processor 102 determines that the user action is "squeeze".

When the user presses the portable electronic device 100 for a long time in different states of the portable electronic device 100 (user action 3), the corresponding operation is executed. For example, when the screen of the portable electronic device 100 is turned on/off (state B/a), the camera is turned on (state C), the user watches a movie (state D), listens to music (state E), plays a game on the portable electronic device 100 (state F), or the user browses a web/photo (state L), the user squeezes the portable electronic device 100 to record a note by voice or typing. When the user is in the call (state G), the user squeezes the portable electronic device 100 to end the call. When the alarm/sound is sounded (state H), the user squeezes the portable electronic device 100 for a long time to release the alarm/sound. When the user has an incoming call (state I), the user squeezes the portable electronic device 100 to reject the incoming call. When the user uses IME to compose the IM/message (status K), the user squeezes the portable electronic device 100 for voice input. When the user does not compose the IM/message (status L) using IME, the user squeezes the portable electronic device 100 to record and transmit the voice message. The user action "long squeeze" indicates that the user continues to squeeze the first sensor 104 and the second sensor 106 for a period of time (greater than a time threshold). For example, when the user continues to squeeze the portable electronic device 100 for more than 3 seconds, the processor 102 determines the user action as "long squeeze".

When the user double-squeezes the portable electronic device 100 in different states of the portable electronic device 100 (user action 4), a corresponding operation is performed. For example, when the screen of the portable electronic device 100 is turned on/off (state B/a), the user watches a movie (state D), listens to music (state E), plays a game on the portable electronic device 100 (state F), the user has a call (state G), an alarm clock/alarm sounds (state H), the user writes IM/information with or without IME (state J or K), or the user browses a web/photo (state L), the user double squeezes the portable electronic device 100 to activate the camera. The user action "double squeeze" indicates that the user squeezes the first sensor 104 and the second sensor 106 twice consecutively in a time interval. For example, when the user squeezes the portable electronic device 100 twice within two seconds, the processor 102 determines the user action as "double squeezing". In one embodiment, the corresponding operation of the user action "double squeeze" can be customized. That is, the user can reset the corresponding operation. For example, the corresponding operation "turn on camera" is reset to "turn on favorite applications (apps)".

When the user's finger slides on one long side of the portable electronic device 100 in different states of the portable electronic device 100 (user action 5), a corresponding operation is performed. In response to the sliding motion of the user, the plurality of sensing elements of the first sensor 104 or the second sensor 106 continuously and sequentially output sensing signals within a specific time period, and the processor 102 determines the user motion as "sliding" according to the sensing signals. For example, when the screen of the portable electronic device 100 is turned on (state B), or the user browses the web/photo (state L), the user slides on one long side of the portable electronic device 100 to scroll the page/content displayed on the touch display screen 109. When the camera of the portable electronic device 100 is turned on (state C), the user' S fingers hold the portable electronic device 100 in the landscape mode and slide on the upper side (the third side S3) to adjust the brightness or slide on the lower side (the fourth side S4) to zoom the display of the touch display screen 109. When the user watches the movie (state D), the user' S fingers hold the portable electronic device 100 in the landscape mode and slide on the upper side (the third side S3) to adjust the brightness, or slide on the lower side (the fourth side S4) to adjust the progress bar. When the user listens to music (state E), the user' S finger slides on the third side S3 or the fourth side S4 to adjust the progress bar. When the user plays the game (state F), the user holds the portable electronic device 100 in the landscape mode and slides on the upper side (the third side S3) to turn off the reminder and turn on the Do Not Disturb (DND) mode. Referring to fig. 6, the diagram is shown when the user's finger slides on one long side of the portable electronic device 100. The user action "slide" indicates that the user touches one of the long sides with a finger and moves the finger along the long side while the user holds the portable electronic device 100.

When the user's finger slides on both long sides of the portable electronic device 100 in different states of the portable electronic device 100 (user action 6), a corresponding operation is performed. In response to the sliding motion of the user, the sensing elements of the first sensor 104 and the second sensor 106 continuously and sequentially output sensing signals within a specific time period, and the processor 102 determines the user motion according to the sensing signals. For example, when the screen of the portable electronic device 100 is turned on/off (state B/a), the camera is turned on (state C), the user watches a movie (state D), listens to music (state E), plays a game on the portable electronic device 100 (state F), the user is on the phone (state G), the alarm clock/alarm sounds (state H), the user has an incoming call (state I), the user writes IM/information with or without IME (state J or K), or the user browses a web/photo (state L), the user's fingers slide on both long sides of the portable electronic device 100 to obtain the display of the touch display screen 109 (screen capture). Referring to fig. 7, it is a schematic diagram of when a user's finger slides on two long sides of the portable electronic device 100. The user action "sliding both sides" means that when the user holds the portable electronic device 100, the user touches both long sides with at least two fingers and moves the fingers along both long sides simultaneously.

When the user presses the volume position in different states of the portable electronic device 100 (user action 7), a corresponding operation is performed. The volume position is a specific position on the long side. For example, when the screen of the portable electronic device 100 is turned on/off (state E), the camera is turned on (state C), the user watches a movie (state D), listens to music (state E), plays a game on the portable electronic device 100 (state F), the user is on the phone (state G), an alarm clock/alarm sounds (state H), the user has an incoming call (state I), the user writes IM/information with or without IME (state J or K), or the user browses a web/photo (state L), the user presses a volume position of one long side of the portable electronic device 100 to adjust the volume. For example, the user may press a first portion of the volume position (e.g., an upper portion adjacent to one long side of the first side S1) to increase the volume, or the user may press a second portion relative to the first portion (e.g., a lower portion adjacent to one long side of the second side S2) to decrease the volume.

When the user holds the portable electronic device 100 in different states of the portable electronic device 100 and touches the third side S3 and the fourth side S4 with hands, a corresponding operation is performed when a finger slides quickly on one side (user action 8). For example, when the screen of the portable electronic device 100 is turned on/off (state B/a), the user watches a movie (state D), listens to music (state E), plays a game on the portable electronic device 100 (state F), the user is on the phone (state G), an alarm clock/alarm sounds (state H), the user has an incoming call (state I), the user writes IM/information with or without IME (state J or K), or the user browses a web/photo (state L), the user holds the portable electronic device 100 and slides fingers quickly on one of its long sides to turn on/off the flash. Referring to fig. 8, it is a schematic diagram of when the user's finger slides rapidly on one long side of the portable electronic device 100. The user action "quick slide" indicates that the user's finger quickly slides a distance (greater than a distance threshold) on one long side of the portable electronic device 100 within a predetermined period of time. For example, when the user's finger slides more than 5 centimeters over one long side of the portable electronic device 100 within a predetermined period, the processor 102 determines the user action as a "quick slide". In one embodiment, the corresponding operation of the user action "quick slide" is customizable. That is, the user can reset the corresponding operation. For example, the corresponding operation "turn on/off flash" is reset to "turn on mute/DND mode", "turn on flight mode", or "turn on Wi-Fi hotspot".

When the user presses on the left and right portions of one long side thereof in the landscape mode in different states of the portable electronic device 100 (user action 9), a corresponding operation is performed. For example, when the user plays a game on the portable electronic device 100 in landscape mode (state F), the user presses simultaneously on the left and right portions of one long side of the portable electronic device 100 (for example, side S3) to turn on the screen recording tool. Referring to fig. 9, it is a schematic diagram of the user pressing the left and right portions of one long side of the portable electronic device 100 in the landscape mode. The screen recording tool 118 is a control interface for the game.

During the squeezing of the portable electronic device 100, the user may not be able to maintain a constant level of force, so the user's force profile may exhibit a high or low jitter profile. Therefore, in another embodiment, different comparison thresholds are set for squeezing and releasing to improve the success rate of squeezing action recognition. For example, referring to FIG. 10, the squeeze threshold TH1 is used to assist in determining whether a squeeze action is initiated, and the release threshold TH2 is used to assist in determining whether a squeeze action is terminated, where TH2 is less than TH 1.

The squeezing threshold TH1 may be set by testing the squeezing force of the user during the squeezing setting procedure of the portable electronic device 100. The release threshold TH2 may be set in accordance with the squeeze threshold TH 1.

The pressing setting procedure may include requesting the user to press the portable electronic device 100 several times, and detecting a test pressure F1 when the user presses the portable electronic device 100 through the sensing element, and the processor 102 determines the set pressure F2 as the pressing threshold TH1 according to the test pressure F1.

The set pressure F2 may be a percentile value of the test pressure F1. For example, in one embodiment, the test pressure F1 may be 100, 150, and 200 (pressure units), and the set pressure F2 (or crush threshold TH1) calculated from a minimum value of 100 (pressure units) and a maximum value of 200 (pressure units) is 175 (pressure units) at a 75TH percentile value. The present disclosure is not so limited. In another embodiment, for example, the test pressure F1 may be 100, 150, and 200 (pressure units), and the set pressure F2 (or squeeze threshold TH1) is 150 (pressure units), 150 (pressure units) being the average of these three test pressures F1.

In one embodiment, two or more of the set pressures F2 may be set by a squeeze setting program. The set pressure F2 may be categorized sequentially (e.g., in order of size corresponding to 100, 150, 200 (pressure units)) into several figures in the user interface, and one of the two or more set pressures F2 (e.g., 150 (pressure units)) may be selected by the user as the squeeze threshold TH 1. Then, if the user considers that the set pressure F2 (e.g., 150 (pressure units)) as the squeezing threshold TH1 does not meet the actual requirement, the user can set another one of the two or more set pressures F2 as the squeezing threshold TH 1. For example, when the user believes 150 (pressure units) is too high, the user may reset 100 (pressure units) below 150 (pressure units) as the squeeze threshold TH 1; or when the user believes 150 (pressure units) is too low, the user may reset 200 (pressure units) above 150 (pressure units) as the squeeze threshold TH 1.

The processor 102 may determine the release threshold TH2 based on the squeeze threshold TH 1. In one embodiment, the release threshold TH2 may be a specific percentage (less than 100%) of the crush threshold TH 1. For example, the release threshold TH2 is a 75% crush threshold TH 1. For example, assuming a crush threshold TH1 of 175 (pressure units), a release threshold TH2 of 131.25 (pressure units).

After setting TH1 and TH2, the processor 102 determines that the squeezing operation is started when the pressure of the pressing operation started at time TM1 reaches the squeezing threshold TH1 at time TM 2. Conversely, when the pressure of the pressing motion starting at the time point TM1 does not reach the squeezing threshold TH1, the processor 102 does not recognize the start of the squeezing motion. For example, the pressing action that does not reach the squeezing threshold may include a normal holding action of the user on the portable electronic device 100, so that the processor 102 does not trigger the portable electronic device 100 to execute the corresponding function operation, i.e., the processor 102 recognizes the squeezing action as an invalid squeezing event, and does not execute the corresponding default function. After the pressure reaches the squeezing threshold TH1 and falls below the release threshold TH2, the processor 102 determines that the user has finished squeezing, i.e., the processor 102 recognizes that the squeezing is a valid squeezing event and performs the corresponding default function.

The processor 102 determines a period PT1 (the interval between the time point TM2 when the squeezing threshold TH1 is reached and the time point TM3 when the release threshold TH2 is reached) as the period of the squeezing operation. Compared to the time threshold, the processor 102 may determine the squeezing action as a long squeezing action or a short squeezing action according to the time period PT 1. In one embodiment, when the period PT1 is less than or equal to the time threshold of 0.7 seconds, the squeezing action is determined to be a short squeezing action. When the time period PT1 is greater than the time threshold value of 0.7 seconds, the squeezing action is determined to be a long squeezing action.

Based on the squeezing action (long squeezing action or short squeezing action), the processor 102 can determine the functional operation of the portable electronic device 100. The functional action corresponding to the sensed short/long squeezing action may be performed by the portable electronic device 100. In another embodiment, only the long squeeze action will activate the specific function action of the portable electronic device 100, and the short squeeze action is ignored.

In another embodiment, the processor 102 may dynamically adjust the values of the squeezing threshold TH1 and the releasing threshold TH2 according to the actual operation of the portable electronic device 100 squeezed by the user. For example, if two or more squeezing actions are performed by the user within a short time interval, such as fast and continuous execution of the photo capture function, at least one subsequent squeezing action after the first squeezing action may be determined according to the squeezing threshold TH1 'and the release threshold TH 2', and the squeezing threshold TH1 'and the release threshold TH 2' are adjusted according to the squeezing threshold TH1 and the release threshold TH2, respectively, to be smaller than the squeezing threshold TH1 and the release threshold TH2, respectively. For example, TH1 'is 0.95 (TH1) and TH 2' is 0.95 (TH 2). However, the disclosure is not so limited. As shown in fig. 11, in one embodiment, if the time interval between the first and second squeeze actions is shorter than a specific value, for example, the time interval PT2 between the time point TM5 of the second squeeze action and the time point TM3 of the first squeeze action, the second squeeze action can be determined by the squeeze threshold TH1 'and the release threshold TH 2'. Similarly, if the time interval between the second and third pressing actions is shorter than a predetermined value, the third pressing action can be determined by another threshold TH1 "and TH 2" (not shown), the thresholds TH1 "and TH 2" are respectively adjusted according to the thresholds TH1 'and TH 2' to be smaller than the thresholds TH1 'and TH 2'. For example, TH1 ″ -0.95 ═ TH1 'and TH2 ″ -0.95 ═ TH 2'. On the contrary, if the time interval between the second and third pressing actions is greater than a specific value, the third pressing action can be determined by the thresholds TH1 and TH 2.

In another embodiment, the squeezing threshold may be dynamically adjusted. Unlike the squeezing threshold TH1 obtained from the set program, the squeezing threshold can be dynamically adjusted based on the user's frequent squeezing motions rather than being obtained from the setting. For example, the average value of the region A (FIG. 12) defined by the squeeze curve and the squeeze threshold TH1 is compared to a fixed specified value. For example, the average value for zone a is the pressure unit value of zone a divided by the time period of zone a. When the average value of the area A is smaller than the fixed specific value, the extrusion threshold is dynamically adjusted to be lower than the original extrusion threshold TH1, and the subsequent extrusion action is determined according to the adjusted extrusion threshold. Similarly, when the average value of the area a is greater than the fixed specific value, the extrusion threshold is dynamically adjusted to be higher than the original extrusion threshold TH1, and the subsequent extrusion action is determined according to the adjusted extrusion threshold. The dynamic adjustment method of the squeezing threshold is not limited to the above determination method, and may be determined by other statistical methods.

In one embodiment, the curve derived for the abnormal squeezing action is determined without consideration for dynamically adjusting the squeezing threshold. For example, the determination is made based on the curvature value of the vertex of the curve corresponding to the area a, or the slope value of the portion close to the vertex of the curve. When the curvature or slope is less than a fixed value, the squeeze is determined to be abnormal, so the data obtained from the squeeze is not considered for dynamically adjusting the squeeze threshold.

The pressure during the pressing action can be depicted as a visual image on the touch display screen 109 of the portable electronic device 100. In one embodiment, the touch screen 109 starts displaying an initial visual image (fig. 13A) corresponding to the specific fixed pressure TH3, as shown in fig. 15. The specific pressure TH3 is lower than any one of the thresholds (e.g., TH1, TH1 ', TH1 ", etc., TH2, TH 2', TH 2", etc.) to determine whether the squeezing action is performed. The specific pressure TH3 may be a fixed predetermined value regardless of the setting procedure performed by the user. In a successful squeeze process, as the pressure increases from the specific pressure TH3, the visual images gradually change sequentially to the images shown in fig. 13B to 13G and to the images shown in fig. 13H to 13I when the pressure reaches the threshold TH1, indicating that a valid squeeze action is performed to perform the default function. In the unsuccessful compression process, for example, when the pressure is increased from the specific pressure TH3, the visual image is gradually changed in order to the images as shown in fig. 13B to 13G, and when the pressure disappears from a time point shortly after the time point corresponding to fig. 13D, it is more sequentially changed to the images as shown in fig. 14A to 14D which gradually disappear, which means that the effective compression action is not performed, so that the corresponding default function is not performed.

Referring to fig. 16, the touch function of a specific area in the touch display screen 109 is disabled according to the pressing action sensed by the edge sensor 40 of the portable electronic device 100. For example, when the processor 102 determines that the force of the pressing action (or the squeezing action) is higher than a predetermined value (e.g., the threshold TH1) through the first sensor 104 and/or the second sensor 104, the touch function of the area 60 is disabled, and the display function of the touch display screen 109 is still enabled. When the force of the pressing action (or squeezing action) is less than a default value (e.g., threshold TH2), the processor 102 restores the touch function of the area 60. In other words, the touch function of the area 60 is disabled during the period between the time point corresponding to the threshold TH1 and the time point corresponding to the threshold TH2, and is restored after the time point corresponding to the threshold TH 2. In one embodiment, the touch function of the area 60 is disabled during the time period PT1, which is shown in FIG. 10. In one embodiment, the area of the disabled area 60 may be increased corresponding to the gradually increasing pressure, i.e., gradually extending from the edge of the touch display screen 109 toward the center of the touch display screen 109. That is, the width W of the region 60 may increase as the pressure sensed by the first sensor 104 and/or the second sensor 104 increases. In another embodiment, when the processor 102 determines that the force of the pressing action (or the squeezing action) is higher than a predetermined value (e.g., the threshold TH1), the touch function of the entire touch display screen 109 can be disabled.

In one embodiment, when the portable electronic device detects an insertion event or a removal event of the peripheral device, the squeeze event sensed by the edge sensor is ignored. The pinching event may be generated when a pinching motion occurring during the first period is sensed by the edge sensor. The insertion event or the withdrawal event occurs during a first period of time. The squeezing action may begin in a second time period after the insertion event or the extraction event occurs.

Referring to fig. 17, a block diagram of a portable electronic device 200 according to another embodiment of the invention is shown. The portable electronic device 200 further includes a detection unit 233, such as a USB, earphone or other interface detection circuit, for detecting the insertion and extraction of the hardware component. The processor 102 is electrically coupled to the first sensor 104, the second sensor 106, the display unit 108 and the detection unit 233.

For example, referring to fig. 18, in an embodiment, when the peripheral device 117 (e.g., USB device) is a headset, a lighting device, a fan, or a drive, and the detecting unit 233 detects that the peripheral device 117 is inserted into or removed from the portable electronic device 200 at the time point TM4 during the period PT1, the pressing action sensed by the edge sensor is ignored by the processor 102, e.g., the edge sensor 40 is disabled by the processor 102, or the functional action corresponding to the sensed (short/long) pressing event is cancelled (not executed) by the portable electronic device 200.

In one embodiment, when the portable electronic device 200 detects the insertion event or the removal event of the peripheral device 117 at the time point TM4, the edge sensor 40 is disabled from a time period beginning at the time point TM4, such as between the time point TM4 and the time point TM3, or between the time point TM4 and a time point later than the time point TM 3.

For example, the USB driver of the peripheral device 117 may notify the sensor hub (sensor hub) when a plug-in event or a pull-out event occurs, and the functional action corresponding to the sensing by the edge sensor 40 is not initiated by the portable electronic device 200. That is, the squeezing action occurring in the vicinity of the time point TM4 is ignored. In one embodiment, the squeezing action within a specific time interval after the time point TM4 is ignored. For example, the pressing action during the period of the time point TM4 and the time point TM3 is ignored. The pressing action during the period between the time point TM4 and a time point after the time point TM3 is ignored. Alternatively, the pressing action after the time point TM3 is ignored.

Referring to fig. 19, a block diagram of a portable electronic device 300 according to another embodiment of the invention is shown. The portable electronic device 300 further includes a third sensor 210 and a G sensor 212. The processor 102 is electrically coupled to the first sensor 104, the second sensor 106, the display unit 108, the third sensor 210, and the G sensor 212. The third sensor 210 may be a resistance sensor or an ultrasonic sensor. The third sensor 210 is disposed under the back cover of the portable electronic device 300. The third sensor 210 includes several sensing elements arranged in a two-dimensional manner. When the user touches the back cover of the portable electronic device 300, the sensing element of the third sensor 210 outputs a signal. The processor 102 determines whether the user touches the back cover (e.g., palm cover or tap back cover as shown in fig. 22) of the portable electronic device 300 according to the output signal of the third sensor 210. In addition, the processor 102 determines whether the portable electronic device 300 is shaken or flipped (as shown in fig. 21) according to output signals from the G sensor 212 and/or other suitable motion sensors, such as an acceleration sensor, a vibration sensor, a shake sensor, and the like.

Tables 2 to 2

Tables 2 to 3

Referring to fig. 19 and tables 2-1, 2-2, and 2-3, when the user double-taps the back cover (user action 10) in different states of the portable electronic device 300, a corresponding operation is performed. For example, when the screen of the portable electronic device 300 is turned on (state a), the camera of the portable electronic device 300 is turned on (state C), the user watches a movie (state D), plays a game on the portable electronic device 300 (state F), or the user browses a web/photo (state L), the user double-taps the rear cover of the portable electronic device 300 to enlarge the display contents of the display unit 108.

When the user double taps the back cover and slides the finger on one long side in different states of the portable electronic device 300 (user action 11), the corresponding operation is performed. For example, when the screen of the portable electronic device 300 is turned on (state B), the camera of the portable electronic device 300 is turned on (state C), the user watches a movie (state D), plays a game on the portable electronic device 300 (state F), or the user browses a web/photo (state L), the user double taps the rear cover of the portable electronic device 300 and slides a finger on one long side of the portable electronic device 300 to zoom in/out the content displayed on the display unit 108.

When the user touches the third side S3 and the fourth side S4 with hands in different states of the portable electronic device 300 and shakes the portable electronic device 300 (user action 12), a corresponding operation is performed. For example, when the screen of the portable electronic device 300 is turned on/off (state B/a), the camera of the portable electronic device 300 is turned on (state C), the user watches a movie (state D), listens to music (state E), plays a game on the portable electronic device 300 (state F), the user is on the phone (state G), the user has an incoming call (state I), the user writes IM/information with or without IME (state J or K), or the user browses a web/photo (state L), the user holds and shakes the portable electronic device 300 to improve (boost) the portable electronic device 300. That is, the user holds and shakes the portable electronic device 300 to temporarily increase the data connection, clear the RAM, increase the antenna strength, and increase the CPU/GPU power. In one embodiment, the user actions "" grip and shake "" are customizable. That is, the user can reset the corresponding operation. For example, the corresponding operation "improve" is reset to "change theme/tablecloth". Referring to fig. 20, the portable electronic device 300 is shown when a user holds and shakes the portable electronic device.

When the user presses the long side of the portable electronic device 300 in a state of the portable electronic device 300 and turns the portable electronic device 300 from back to front, or from front to back (user action 13), a corresponding operation is performed. For example, when the camera of the portable electronic device 300 is activated (state C), the user squeezes and turns the portable electronic device 300 to switch the main camera and the front camera. Referring to fig. 21, a schematic diagram of the portable electronic device 300 when the user squeezes and turns over the device.

When the user turns over and covers the portable electronic device 300 in different states of the portable electronic device 300 (user action 14), corresponding operations are executed. For example, when the screen of the portable electronic device 300 is turned on/off (state B/A), the camera of the portable electronic device 300 is turned on (state C), the user watches a movie (state D), listens to music (state E), plays a game on the portable electronic device 300 (state F), the user is on the phone (state G), the alarm clock/alarm sounds (state H), the user has an incoming call (state I), the user writes IM/information with or without IME (state J or K), or the user browses a web/photo (state L), the user turns over and covers the portable electronic device 300, to turn on the mute mode without pressing any icon or hardware button of the portable electronic device 300, the flip and palm portable electronic device 300 is detected by the G sensor 212 and the third sensor 210, respectively. Referring to fig. 22, it is a schematic diagram of the portable electronic device 300 when a user is covering the portable electronic device. For example, when the user is in a meeting, the user turns over the portable electronic mail 300 and places the portable electronic device 300 on a plane, such as a desk, and covers the back cover 201 of the portable electronic device 300 to turn on the mute mode.

In one embodiment, when the G sensor 212 senses that the portable electronic device 300 is in a stationary state for a period of time, the edge sensor 40 of the portable electronic device 300 is disabled. In one embodiment, when the G sensor 212 senses that the portable electronic device 300 changes from the stationary state to the non-stationary state, a squeezing event occurring within a period of time after a time point at which the non-stationary state starts is ignored.

The G sensor of the portable electronic device 300 may sense coordinates (x, y, z) of the portable electronic device 300. If the G sensor senses that the coordinates of the portable electronic device 300 are (x, y, z) — (0,0,9.8) and last for a certain period of time, the portable electronic device 300 may be determined to be standing on a support such as a desk, table, etc. for a certain period of time, and the edge sensor 40 is disabled in the standing state.

If the portable electronic device 300 determines that the portable electronic device is in the resting state according to the coordinate system, when the portable electronic device 300 is suddenly moved from the resting state to the non-resting state, the processor 102 disables the edge sensor 40 for a period of time after the non-resting state occurs, or even if the pressure sensing the squeezing action reaches the squeezing threshold TH1, the processor 102 ignores the squeezing action sensed by the edge sensor 40 and does not execute the corresponding default function.

For example, the movement of the portable electronic device 300 from the resting state may be caused by the user taking the portable electronic device 300 off the support, or other actions.

The G sensor of the portable electronic device 300 can sense the motion amount (G value change) of the portable electronic device 300. In one embodiment, if the amount of change of the G value reaches a specific amount GV during the momentary movement, the processor 102 executes an interrupt mode to disable the edge sensor 40 or disable the touch function of the portable electronic device 300 corresponding to the sensed squeezing motion.

If the amount of movement (the amount of change in the value of G) of the portable electronic device 300 sensed by the G sensor is determined to be from an abnormal squeezing motion of the user (e.g., a holding motion of a user swinging his/her arm rapidly during exercise), the processor 102 disables the edge sensor 40 or disables the touch function of the portable electronic device 300 corresponding to the squeezing motion.

The G sensor of the portable electronic device 300 may sense an orientation angle of the portable electronic device 300. When the G sensor senses that the portable electronic device 300 is at the coordinates (0,0, -9.8), the processor 102 determines that the touch display screen 109 is facing downward toward the ground. Therefore, the processor 102 disables the edge sensor 40 or disables the touch function of the portable electronic device 300 corresponding to the squeeze action.

Referring to fig. 23, a block diagram of a portable electronic device 400 according to another embodiment of the invention is shown. The portable electronic device 400 further includes a proximity sensor 477. The processor 102 is electrically coupled to the first sensor 104, the second sensor 106, the display unit 108, and the proximity sensor 477. Proximity sensor 477 may detect objects by emitting an electrostatic or electromagnetic field and monitoring the behavior of the generated field over a period of time. Thus, an object approaching the portable electronic device 400 will change the field generated when the object approaches the proximity sensor 477.

Proximity sensor 477 may be used to detect foreign objects placed in front of portable electronic device 400. If the proximity sensor 477 detects a state in which the portable electronic device 400 is in proximity to an external object (e.g., the portable device is placed in a pocket of a user) during a pressing motion sensed by the edge sensor 40, the processor 102 disables the edge sensor 40 or disables the touch function of the portable electronic device 400 corresponding to the pressing motion during the state in which the portable electronic device 400 is in proximity to the external object. In one embodiment, if the proximity sensor 477 determines that the portable electronic device 400 is in a state of approaching an external object, the processor 102 disables the edge sensor 40 during the state of approaching the portable electronic device 400 to the external object, or disables the touch function of the portable electronic device 400 corresponding to the squeezing action, and turns off the screen of the touch display screen 109 even when the portable electronic device 400 receives an incoming call.

In one embodiment, when the user holds the portable electronic device on the first sensor 104 or/and the second sensor 106 and some content is displayed, the portable electronic device is delayed from entering the standby mode so as not to turn off the display unit 108 when the user reads the content. In one embodiment, when the screen of the portable electronic device is closed, the user presses the portable electronic device on the first sensor 104 and the second sensor 106 to wake up the portable electronic device. In one embodiment, when the user has an incoming call, the user holds the portable electronic device on the first sensor 104 or/and the second sensor 106 and brings the portable electronic device near the ear (as detected by the proximity sensor 477) to respond to the incoming call without clicking a response icon (answer icon). In one embodiment, when the user holds the portable electronic device on the first sensor 104 or/and the second sensor 106, the left hand or the right hand confirms the most probable angle of matching with the fingerprint, so as to enhance the fingerprint recognition. In one embodiment, it is determined that the user is asleep when the fingers are gradually no longer being held. In one embodiment, when the user is in danger, the user squeezes the portable electronic device onto the first sensor 104 and the second sensor 106 for 5 seconds to ask for help.

Referring to fig. 24, a flow chart of an operating method of the portable electronic device is shown. The portable electronic device comprises a main body and an edge sensor, wherein the edge sensor is arranged at a position adjacent to one edge of the main body. The operation method is described as follows. In step S2401, it is determined whether the portable electronic device detects an insertion event or a removal event of the peripheral device. If yes, go to step S2402. In step S2402, the squeeze event sensed by the edge sensor is ignored. The pinching event is generated when a pinching motion occurs as sensed by the edge sensor during a first time period. The insertion event or the withdrawal event occurs during a first period of time, or the squeezing action begins in a second period of time after the insertion event or the withdrawal event occurs.

Referring to fig. 25, another flow chart of the operation method of the portable electronic device is shown. The portable electronic device comprises a main body and an edge sensor, wherein the edge sensor is arranged at a position adjacent to one edge of the main body. The operation method is described as follows. In step S2501, a squeezing threshold and a releasing threshold are set. The squeeze threshold is higher than the release threshold. In step S2502, whether a pinching event is generated is determined according to the sensed force of the pinching motion sensed by the edge sensor during the first time interval between the first time point and the second time point. If yes, go to step S2503. In step S2503, a report is generated that a squeeze event occurred. The sensed force at the first point in time reaches a squeezing threshold. The sensed force at the second point in time reaches a release threshold. The second time point is later than the first time point, and the sensed force is above the release threshold during the first period.

Referring to fig. 26, another flow chart of the operation method of the portable electronic device is shown. The operation method is described as follows. In step S2601: determining whether the portable electronic device is in a quiescent state for a period of time I. If yes, go to step S2602. In step S2602, the edge sensor of the portable electronic device is disabled.

Referring to fig. 27, another flow chart of the operation method of the portable electronic device is shown. The operation method is described as follows. In step S2701: determining whether the portable electronic device changes from a static state to a non-static state. If yes, go to step S2702. In step S2702, the pressing event sensed by the edge sensor is ignored. The squeeze event occurs during a period of time after a point in time when the non-stationary state of the portable electronic device begins.

Referring to fig. 28, another flow chart of the operation method of the portable electronic device is shown. The operation method is described as follows. In step S2801: it is determined whether the front of the portable electronic device is adjacent to an external object. If yes, go to step S2802. In step S2802, the edge sensor of the portable electronic device is disabled.

Referring to fig. 31, another flow chart of the operation method of the portable electronic device is shown. The portable electronic device comprises a main body, a touch display screen and an edge sensor, wherein the edge sensor is arranged at the position of one edge of the adjacent main body. The operation method is described with the following steps. In step S3101: a decision is made as to whether an event is to be detected by the edge sensor. If yes, go to step S3102. In step S3102, the touch function of the touch display screen is disabled.
