技术领域 FIELD

本发明涉及由作为被控制装置的例如电视接收机和与其对应的作为遥控器的例如遥控器等构成的控制系统、以及适合于该系统的被控制装置和遥控器。 The present invention relates to a television receiver as an example and a corresponding remote control system such as a remote controller or the like, and the system is adapted to control the device and the remote control device.

背景技术 Background technique

已经提出了很多如下所述的技术:使遥控器多功能化,为使用者提供由遥控器和通过该遥控器远程操作的设备等所构成的系统的操作上的各种便利。 Many techniques have been proposed as follows: The multifunctional remote control so as to facilitate various user operations on the remote control and the remote device via the remote operation or the like constituting the system.

例如,在日本特开2004-166193号公报中,提出了如下的技术:在遥控器中利用GPS用算法等,根据来自3个电波发送源的电波接收和接收时刻检测自己的位置,通过将所检测出的位置与预先准备的各设备的位置信息进行对照来确定离自己最近的设备,从该设备取得用于定义遥控器信号的信息和用于构建操作用图像的信息,在显示部上显示所确定的设备的操作用图像,根据用户操作来确定遥控器信号,在遥控器信号发送控制部中进行发送的控制,从而不用增加用户的按钮操作数,就能使用户更准确地指定希望控制的设备并控制该设备。 For example, Japanese Laid-Open Patent Publication No. 2004-166193 proposes the following technique: in a remote controller using the GPS algorithm, detecting its own position according to the electric wave reception and the reception time of the radio wave from the transmission source 3, by the the position of the detected position information of each device prepared in advance, were compared to determine the nearest device to obtain information for defining a signal from a remote controller and used to construct the apparatus with the operation information of the image displayed on the display unit the operation of the image determining apparatus to determine a remote control signal in accordance with a user operation, the remote control signal transmitted in the transmission control unit, so that without increasing the number of button operation by the user, the user can make control more precisely specify the desired device and controlling the device.

另外,在日本特开2004-187052号公报中,提出了如下的图像处理系统:在利用遥控器来操作投影仪的系统中,在投影仪侧,由自己的接收部接收具有摄像元件的遥控器所取得的投影区域摄像信息和方位信息,基于该接收的信息选择在查询表中预先准备的梯形失真校正值,根据该校正值来校正梯形失真。 Further, Japanese Laid-Open Patent Publication No. 2004-187052 proposes an image processing system as follows: In the operation of the projector to the system, the side of the projector, a remote control receiver having an imaging element receiving portion by its own remote controller projection area of ​​the imaging information and direction information obtained based on the received information in a lookup table to select the trapezoidal distortion correction values ​​prepared in advance according to the correction value to correct keystone distortion.

另外,在日本特开2001-236181号公报中,提出了如下的技术:在利用激光笔来指示显示画面上的任意点的指示设备中,利用在遥控器侧所具有的CCD摄像机对包括从遥控器投射的激光点在内的显示画面进行摄像,根据通过该摄像得到的图像的光栅扫描等算出上述激光点的坐标,以无线方式将表示该坐标的数据从遥控器侧传输到电视机侧并在画面上映出指示点,从而能够从各种角度进行指示。 Further, Japanese Laid-Open Patent Publication No. 2001-236181 proposes the following technique: a pointing device at any point on the screen display using a laser pointer indicated by the remote side has a CCD camera from a remote control including the laser spot projected by a display screen, including imaging, the laser spot is calculated based on the coordinates obtained by raster scanning the image pickup, and the like, wirelessly, and data representing the coordinates from the transmitting side to a television remote control side the release point indicated on the screen, an instruction can be from a variety of angles.

针对上述日本特开2001-236181号公报的提案,在日本特开2003-208260号公报中提出了如下的技术:根据由遥控器侧所具有的摄像装置所拍摄的光栅上的图像显示面的3个角的位置坐标和实际的图像显示面的3个角的位置坐标之间的比较,算出摄像图像的光栅中央坐标对应于实际画面的哪处的坐标,从而不需要从遥控器侧投射激光点等即可进行显示画面上的指示。 For the above-mentioned proposal JP Patent Publication 2001-236181, a technique is proposed in Japanese Laid-Open Patent Publication No. 2003-208260 in which: the image on a raster display surface side by the remote imaging device has captured 3 comparison between the position coordinates of the three corners and the corners of the actual position coordinates of the image display surface, calculates the center coordinates of the image corresponding to the raster image coordinates at which the actual screen, so that no projecting a laser spot from the remote side and the like can be indicated on the display screen.

从可以选择内容或者调节音响效果以适应持有遥控器的使用者的位置的观点来看,上述的现有技术还留有下述的各种课题。 Sound content can be selected or adjusted to suit the user's location from a remote controller held in view of the above prior art still left various problems described below. 即,在日本特开2004-166193号公报的技术中,理论上必须预先设置3个电波发送源以作为位置检测用的基准,因而很难利用比较简单的结构以相应的准确度来选择适合使用者的期望的设备作为控制对象。 That is, in Japanese Patent Publication Laid-Open No. 2004-166193 technique, in theory, must be previously provided with three radio transmission source as a reference for position detection, it is difficult to use a relatively simple structure to respective accuracy to choose suitable a desired control target device's. 另外,在该特开2004-166193号公报的提案中,构成为无条件地将离遥控器(即持有该遥控器的使用者)的位置最近的某个设备选定为控制对象,所以不一定是使用者本来所希望的设备被选择。 Further, in the proposal of Patent Publication Laid-Open No. 2004-166193, a configuration is unconditionally from the remote control (i.e., the user holds the remote control) a position nearest a device selected as a control object, may not always be a user would have the desired device is selected. 因此,当实际使用时,使用者自己必须接近设备,而不能期望按字义自动地选择意图操作的控制对象。 Therefore, when the actual use, the user must be close to their own devices, and can not expect literal intent of the control object is automatically selected operations.

另外,在日本特开2004-187052号公报中所提出的技术中,只是在需要校正投影仪中的梯形失真的情况下取得遥控器的方位信息,并根据该取得的方位信息来执行梯形失真的校正,对于从与设备主体的相对关系的角度来识别遥控器(因此是使用者)并选择内容或调节音响效果以便适合于该识别的技术则没有任何启发性的教示。 In addition, the technique disclosed in Japanese Laid-Open Patent Publication No. 2004-187052 are proposed in only orientation information acquired in the case where the remote controller of the projector is necessary to correct keystone distortion and trapezoidal distortion is performed based on the orientation information acquired in correction, for the remote controller to identify (and thus users) and select content or adjusting the sound to the art suitable for the identification is not taught in any of the illuminating angle with respect to the relationship with the device body.

并且,在特开2001-236181号公报的提案中,一直由遥控器侧的摄像单元对包括所投影的激光点在内的显示画面进行摄像,根据通过该摄像获得的影像信号的光栅扫描来取得激光点的位置坐标的数据,其宗旨与从与设备主体的相对关系的角度来识别遥控器的位置并选择内容或调节音响效果以便适合于该识别的技术不同。 Further, the proposal of Patent Publication Laid-Open No. 2001-236181, has been performed on the image display screen includes a laser spot projected by the imaging unit, including the controller side, acquires a video signal according to a raster scan obtained by the imaging the position coordinate data of the laser spot, which is the purpose of identifying the remote control device from the perspective of a relative relationship with the body and a position selection or adjusting the sound to suit different identification techniques.

另一方面,日本特开2003-208260号公报的提案如日本特开2001-236181号公报那样,仅限于不用从遥控器侧投射激光点等就能够进行在显示画面上的指示,既没有解决日本特开2001-236181号公报所记载的技术中的课题的意图,也没有关于从与设备主体的相对关系的角度来识别遥控器的位置并选择内容或调节音响效果以便适合于该识别的技术的提案。 On the other hand, JP-A-2003-208260 proposed in Japanese Patent Publication Laid-Open Patent Publication No. 2001-236181 above, not only from the point of projecting the laser controller side and the like can be indicated on the display screen, neither solved Japan problem intended Patent Publication Laid-open No. 2001-236181 described in the art, nor is there any recognition remote controller to the apparatus main body from the viewpoint of a relative relationship with the position and the selection or adjustment to fit to the sound recognition technique proposal.

另一方面,上述的任一专利文献所记载的技术也没有在如下的观点上提供有益的启发:能够根据遥控器的移动轨迹的特征来估计使用遥控器的使用者(作为被控制装置的影像音响装置的视听者)以选择与其相适应的内容,或者估计在与遥控器所存在的位置大概一致的位置处的可能性高的视听者的位置,以调节音响效果使得适合于遥控器(因此,是持有该遥控器的使用者)的位置。 On the other hand, any of the above techniques described in Patent Document did not provide useful in the following views on inspiration: the user can be estimated using the remote controller (as the locus control apparatus according to the features of the mobile remote controller image audio apparatus viewer) to select a content adapted thereto, or approximately estimated present position coincides with the position of the high possibility of remote viewer at a position, adapted to adjust the sound so that the remote control (and therefore , the user is holding the remote controller) position.

图4是用于说明利用摄像单元(摄像机)对方形的电视接收机的画面或其外侧的壳体等形状/尺寸已知的被摄体进行摄像,根据通过该摄像所取得的图像的状态来确定该被摄体与摄像机的相对位置这样的在本发明的实施方式中使用的相对位置计算原理的示意图。 FIG 4 is a diagram of a square shape and size of a television receiver screen or a subject known to the outside of the housing or the like / imaging by the imaging unit (camera), according to the state of the image acquired by the imaging schematic of the relative position of the subject relative position of the camera used in this embodiment of the present invention calculated in principle determined. 在图4中,假定利用摄像机20对作为已知被摄体的电视接收机的画面10进行摄像,通过该摄像生成由图像数据表示的图像30。 In FIG. 4, assume that the picture using the camera 20, as known in the television receiver subject of imaging 10, 30 to generate an image represented by the image data through the imaging.

电视接收机的画面10的水平方向的尺寸为W,垂直方向的尺寸为H分别是已知的。 The horizontal size of the television receiver screen 10 is W, and H is the vertical dimension, respectively, are known. 通过摄像机20的镜头21使该画面10在摄像元件的摄像面22上成像,作为光电转换后的输出得到由图像数据表示的图像30。 20 through the lens 21 of the camera 10 so that the picture on the imaging surface of the imaging element 22 outputs a photoelectric conversion to obtain image 30 as represented by the image data. 如果摄像机20的位置正对着作为被摄体的电视接收机的画面10的中央,则图像30的形状与实际的画面10具有相似的关系,但如果位于偏离这样的正对位置的位置处,则作为摄像结果的图像30的形状如图所示变为梯形,产生所谓梯形失真。 However, if at the position facing the center of the camera 20 as the subject of the television receiver screen 10, the shape of the actual image 30 and screen 10 has a similar relationship, if located in the position deviated from a normal position, as the shape of the image of the imaging result 30 becomes a trapezoid as shown, a so-called trapezoidal distortion.

现在,已知作为被摄体的画面10的水平方向的尺寸为W,垂直方向的尺寸为H,设作为通过摄像机20的摄像而取得的图像信息(由图像数据表示的图像30)的图像的梯形失真的梯形像的各尺寸是长边为a,短边为b,高为c。 Now, it is known as the screen size of the object 10 in the horizontal direction is W, the size in the vertical direction is H, set as image information (image represented by the image data 30) is acquired by the imaging camera 20 the dimensions of the trapezoidal distortion of the image is a trapezoid the long side is a, the short side is b, a height c. 从摄像机20到作为被摄体的画面10的距离D可以根据摄像倍率(镜头21的焦距)和像上述的W和c的关系那样的各对应部分间的尺寸关系算出,或者也可以利用在小型摄像机等中经常使用的基于三角测距原理的众所周知的自动对焦(active AF)的方法来简单地算出。 Distance D 10 may be the relationship between the size of the corresponding portions such as the camera 20 is calculated from a picture object according to an imaging magnification (focal length of lens 21) and the relationship between the W and c as described above, or may also be used in a small autofocus method known triangulation principle (active AF) is calculated simply based on a video camera is often used.

因此,根据上述的表示画面10的水平方向的尺寸W、垂直方向的尺寸H、梯形像的高度c、长边a、短边b、距离D的数据的关系,算出摄像机偏离正对作为被摄体的画面10的中央的位置(法线方向)的程度,作为角度θ。 Thus, according to the height c of the dimension W in the horizontal direction above a screen 10, the dimension H in the vertical direction, a trapezoidal image, the relationship between the long sides a, a short side B, the data of the distance D, calculating the camera has deviated from serving as a subject degree position of the center (the normal direction) of the screen member 10, as the angle θ. 即,如果准备好了上述各数据,则能够根据这些数据算出被控制装置(电视接收机)与遥控器的相对位置。 That is, if the respective data is ready, it can be calculated by the device (television receiver) and the relative position of the remote control based on these data.

在实际的装置中,在根据上述原理计算被控制装置(电视接收机)与遥控器的相对位置的情况下,对于上述W、H、c、a、b、D,将表示它们在实用范围内可能取得的值之间的关系的数据集中到查询表中。 In an actual apparatus, in the case of calculating the relative position of the remote controlled apparatus (television receiver) according to the above principle, the above-described W, H, c, a, b, D, indicating that they are within a practical range the relationship between the value of the data may be obtained concentrate lookup table. 在由电视接收机100算出上述相对位置的实施方式的情况下,在图2结构的存储器172中预先存储用于保持这样的数据的查询表,系统控制器170在需要的时刻,参照该查询表来算出角度θ。 In the case of the embodiment, the relative position is calculated by the television receiver 100, the memory structure 1722 of FIG lookup table stored in advance for holding such data, the system controller 170 at a desired moment, with reference to the look-up table calculated angle θ.

另外,如后面参照图11和图12所说明的实施方式中那样,在遥控器200侧计算上述相对位置的情况下,同样在图3结构的存储器232中预先存储用于保持这样的数据的查询表,系统控制器230在需要的时刻,参照该查询表来算出角度θ。 Further, as described later with reference to FIG. 11 and FIG. 12 embodiment described in the above, the case of calculating the relative position of the remote controller 200 side, also stored query for holding such data in advance in the memory 2323 in the configuration of FIG. table, the system controller 230 at the desired moment, the angle θ is calculated by referring to the lookup table. 这种情况下,因为在遥控器200侧算出上述相对位置,所以在电视接收机100侧,可以从遥控器200侧接收作为计算结果的相对位置信息,进行适当的调整动作。 In this case, since the relative position is calculated in the remote controller 200 side, so the television receiver 100 side, relative position information may be received as a result of calculation from the side of the remote controller 200, appropriate adjustment operation.

并且,也可以采用下面的方法来取代如上述那样通过参照预先在存储器中准备的查询表来计算被控制装置(电视接收机)与遥控器的相对位置的方法,即:利用例如系统控制器的相应功能部来构成梯形失真运算单元,该梯形失真运算单元使用在被控制装置侧通过其信息接收单元所接收的图像信息中的有助于识别该被控制装置与所述遥控器的相对位置的信息(例如,表示在已知大小的方形的四个角处设置在相应位置上的特定位置标记的标记信息等)来执行求出梯形失真的运算,使用这样的梯形失真运算单元的运算结果和预先准备的可利用的与该被控制装置的外形尺寸有关的信息,来算出该被控制装置和所述遥控器的相对位置。 Further, the following method may be employed instead of the method as described above by referring to a lookup table prepared in advance in a memory to calculate the relative position of the remote controlled apparatus (television receiver), namely: a system controller utilizing e.g. respective functional unit is constituted trapezoidal distortion calculation means, the calculation means using the trapezoidal distortion in the relative position of the apparatus and the remote apparatus side is controlled by the image information receiving unit which receives information helps in identifying the controlled information (e.g., a specific mark indicating the position of the mark information and the like is provided at corresponding positions at the four corners of the square of known size) obtained by performing trapezoidal distortion calculation, calculation results using an arithmetic unit such trapezoidal distortion and available information prepared in advance with the dimensions of the control device pertaining to calculate the relative position of the controlled apparatus and the remote controller.

图5是表示包括上述的液晶电视100和遥控器200而构成的作为本发明的实施方式的控制系统(液晶电视系统)100+200的动作概要的流程图。 FIG 5 is a diagram showing an embodiment of the present invention comprises a control system (liquid crystal television system), and the above-described liquid crystal television 100 and remote control 200 + 200 100 constituting an operation outline flowchart. 下面,适当参照该流程图和上述的各图,对本发明的实施方式进行更详细的描述。 Hereinbelow, referring to the flowchart drawings and described above, embodiments of the present invention will be described in more detail. 并且,将图5的流程图抽象表现为可以在多种变形例中共用的相应程度。 Further, the abstract expression to the flowchart of FIG. 5 is a modified embodiment may be more common to the corresponding degree.

在图5中,首先,在具有图3的结构的遥控器200侧,在动作开始后,进行其摄像单元210(摄像元件211+摄像电路212)的摄像(S201)。 In FIG. 5, first side 200 of FIG. 3 having a configuration of the remote control, after the operation start, for which the imaging unit 210 (imaging device imaging circuit 211 + 212) imaging (S201). 接着,在S201中所取得的图像数据通过作为信息传输单元的系统控制器230(其相应的功能部)和控制信号投射部220转换成红外线等的控制信号Sc来进行投射,从而被传输(S202),该被投射的信号Sc被图2的液晶电视100的受光元件181接收,通过受光电路182进行预定的信号转换,并提供给系统控制器170(S101)。 Next, in S201, the image data acquired by the system controller 230 (corresponding functional unit) as an information transmission means and a control signal unit 220 converts the projection into a control signal Sc to the projection of infrared rays, so as to be transmitted (S202 ), which is projected by the liquid crystal television signal Sc FIG. 2 elements 181,100 receiving light reception signal converted by the predetermined light receiving circuit 182, and supplied to the system controller 170 (S101). 由受光元件181和受光电路182以及系统控制器170(其相应的功能部)构成信息接收单元。 Information receiving unit 181 and the light receiving circuit 182 and a system controller 170 (corresponding functional unit) constituting the light-receiving element.

接着,在液晶电视100的作为相对位置计算单元的系统控制器170中,使用所接收的表示图像的信息(与信号Sc对应的图像数据),执行基于参照图4所说明的原理的处理,算出作为被控制装置的液晶电视100与遥控器200的相对位置(S102)。 Next, in the computing unit as a relative position of the system controller 170 of the liquid crystal television 100, the information (signal Sc corresponding to the image data) representing an image using the received, is performed based on the principle described with reference to FIG. 4 process, calculates as the relative position control means 100 and the liquid crystal television remote controller 200 (S102). 在液晶电视100侧(图2),根据这样算出的自己100与遥控器200的相对位置,从系统控制器170发出指令,通过调节左右放大器141、142的放大率,调节左右扬声器143、144的音量,来调整发声的指向方向(S103),使得在遥控器200的所在位置(将该位置附近推测为视听者的所在位置)能进行最佳的视听,最后结束一系列的动作。 In the liquid crystal television 100 side (FIG. 2), according to the relative position of the 100 calculated in this way with its own remote controller 200, issues an instruction from the system controller 170, the amplifier by adjusting the amplification factor of about 141, 142, 143, 144 of the left and right speakers adjusting volume to adjust the pointing direction of the utterance (S103), such that in the location (close to the position where the estimation for the location of the viewer) can perform the optimum viewing, and end a series of operations of the remote controller 200.

根据上述的控制系统,利用设置在遥控器(遥控器200)侧的摄像单元,以包含被控制装置(液晶电视100)在内的摄像视野来进行摄像,将通过该摄像所取得的图像信息传输给被控制装置,从而在通过信息接收单元接收到所传输的图像信息的被控制装置侧,能够算出遥控器与被控制装置的相对位置。 According to the control system, using the imaging unit provided on the side of the remote controller (remote controller 200), the imaging field of view is to include a control device (liquid crystal television 100) including an imaging is performed, the transmission of image information acquired by the imaging to the controlled device, so that by the information receiving unit receives the image information transmitted by the control apparatus side, and the relative position of the remote apparatus to be controlled can be calculated. 在识别出该算出的遥控器位置的被控制装置侧,能够进行适合于该识别的方式的动作。 Identified in the calculated position of the remote apparatus side is controlled, it can be adapted to the identification of the operation mode.

这里,所谓识别出遥控器的位置后的适合于该识别的方式的动作,例如是指如下的动作:调节左右扬声器143、144的发声的指向方向使其沿着遥控器200(因此,是指拿着该遥控器200,或者处于接近遥控器200的位置处的视听者)的方向的音量均衡调节,或者优先选择放映适合于在该位置处的可能性高的特定视听者(例如,如果是液晶电视100的画面侧面的位置则是一家之主,如果是正对中央的位置则是夫人,如果是它们的中间位置则是小孩等)的内容等动作。 Here, the identification is adapted to identify the manner of operation after the position of the remote control, for example, refers to the following actions: adjusting the pointing direction of the sound left and right speakers 143 and 144 so that along the remote controller 200 (and therefore, means holding the remote controller 200, remote controller or a state close to the viewer at position 200) the volume balance adjustment direction, or preferentially selected for display suitable for the particular viewer at a high possibility that a position (e.g., if position of the picture side of the liquid crystal television 100 is the head of the family, is positive if the center position of the lady is, if their content is the intermediate position of the child, etc.) and the like operation.

在参照图5的流程图所说明的实施方式的一个变形例中,在遥控器200侧,在还发挥外形信息保存单元的功能的存储器232中预先保存关于被预定为控制对象的一个以上的被控制装置的外形的信息,利用构成为还发挥控制对象辨别单元的功能的系统控制器230,根据摄像单元所拍摄的图像信息与存储器232中所保存的关于被控制装置的外形的信息的相关度来辨别应作为控制对象的被控制装置。 In a modification of the embodiment with reference to the flowchart of FIG. 5 embodiment illustrated, the side of the remote controller 200, the memory 232 also serves the function of the outer shape information holding unit is stored in advance as a predetermined one or more objects to be controlled about profile information control apparatus 230 using a configuration, the correlation shape information regarding the control device also serves as the system controller controls the object discriminating means function according to the imaging unit the captured image information stored in memory 232 It should be to identify the control device as the control target.

如果这样构成遥控器200侧,则遥控器200自己通过自己的控制对象辨别单元来辨别应作为控制对象的被控制装置,所以能够识别适合于所辨别出的被控制装置的控制指令的编码体系和规格以进行精确的控制。 If such a configuration 200 side of the remote control, the remote control 200 their own control target discriminating means discriminates should be used as the control means controls an object, it is possible to identify the coding system suitable for the controlled apparatus discriminated control command and Specifications for precise control. 更具体地说,在步骤S202的图像信息的传输中,能够将在S201中取得的图像数据转换成适合于上述编码体系的红光外等的控制信号Sc,并投射到液晶电视100上,所以对于控制指令的编码体系不同的多个被控制装置能够共同使用一个遥控器200。 More specifically, in the transmission of the image information in step S202, it is possible to convert the image data acquired in S201 to be suitable for the coding system and the like outside the red control signal Sc, and projected onto the liquid crystal television 100, so a control system for encoding a plurality of different instructions can be used in common by the control device 200 a remote controller.

在上述的变形例中,也可以在遥控器200侧的存储器232中,保存由合适的摄像单元预先摄像而取得的与预定为所述控制对象的一个以上的被控制装置的外形相关的图像。 In the modified embodiment, memory 232 may be a remote controller 200 side, the imaging means stored in advance by a suitable imaging is acquired with the predetermined image profile associated apparatus to be controlled over the control object a. 这样,在遥控器200通过自己的控制对象辨别单元(系统控制器230)来辨别应作为控制对象的被控制装置时,可以将与预定为控制对象的被控制装置本身的外形相关的图像提供为该辨别的基准,进行控制对象的正确的辨别。 Shape so related images, when the control device 200 is to identify the object to be controlled and through their own control target discriminating means (system controller 230) remote control, may be predetermined as a control object is to provide a control apparatus itself the benchmark identify, correctly identify the control object.

图6是在本发明的另一实施方式中,在作为被控制装置的液晶电视100的显示画面(屏幕102)上放映出当根据参照图4所说明的梯形失真来计算遥控器200相对于液晶电视100的相对位置时的标识中所使用的位置标记的状态的示意图。 FIG 6 is another embodiment of the present invention, showing the liquid crystal television on the display screen of the control device (screen 102) 100 when the distortion is calculated according to the trapezoid remote controller described with reference to FIG 4200 with respect to the liquid crystal showing a state when the position mark identifying the relative position of the TV 100 is used. 在图6的例子中,在屏幕102内,如图所示,放映出相互的水平方向距离为W、垂直方向距离为H的4个位置标记1021、1022、1023、1024。 In the example of FIG. 6, in the screen 102, as shown, show a mutual distance in the horizontal direction as marked 1021,1022,1023,1024 W, four vertical position H.

在如图6所示放映出位置标记的系统中,可以将该标记信息的水平方向距离W、垂直方向距离H作为参照图4所说明的各已知值W、H来使用,从而算出被控制装置(液晶电视100)与遥控器(遥控器200)的相对位置。 In the position shown in FIG. 6 screening marker systems, the flag information may be the horizontal direction distance W, each of the vertical distance H as the known value W described with reference to FIG. 4, H is used to calculate the controlled the relative position of the device (LCD 100) and the remote control (remote 200). 通常,可将这样具有单纯形状的亮点的影像从摄像图像中作为不同的图案而容易地抽出,应用被准确抽出的信息,根据作为梯形失真运算单元来发挥功能的系统控制器230的梯形失真运算来算出上述的相对位置。 Typically, an image may thus have a simple shape and a bright spot easily withdrawn, the application information is accurately extracted from the captured image as a different pattern, according to a distortion calculation unit calculating the trapezoidal distortion function to play the system controller 230 of the trapezoid calculates the relative position described above.

在图6的实施方式中,放映出了被控制装置(液晶电视100)的上述4点的位置标记1021、1022、1023、1024,但除此之外还放映出了在遥控器(遥控器200)侧可识别的编码信息图案1025。 In the embodiment of Figure 6, showing the position of the control means is 4:00 (LCD 100) 1021,1022,1023,1024 marker, but in addition also show a remote controller (remote controller 200 ) coded side information may identify the pattern 1025. 该编码信息图案1025是例如QR码(注册商标)等的二维条形码。 The coding information, for example, the pattern 1025 is QR code (registered trademark), two-dimensional barcode.

在被控制装置侧放映出这样的编码信息图案1025,通过利用该编码信息图案1025来表示例如4点位置标记1021、1022、1023、1024间的水平和垂直方向的间隔、被控制装置自己的规格(合适的控制指令的编码体系)的信息,在遥控器(遥控器200)侧如果以包含这些位置标记1021、1022、1023、1024以及编码信息图案1025在内的摄像视野来进行摄像,则能够容易且准确地获得有助于识别被控制装置(液晶电视100)与所述遥控器(遥控器200)的相对位置的信息。 Such encoded information showing a pattern in the controlled apparatus 1025 side, by using the coding information 1025 to indicate that the pattern position mark 4:00 e.g. horizontal and vertical directions the spacing between 1021,1022,1023,1024, controlled apparatus own specifications information (coding system suitable control command) in the remote controller (remote controller 200) side if these position marks to include the imaging field of view 1021,1022,1023,1024 and 1025, including the encoded information to the pattern image, it is possible to easily and accurately obtain information helps identify the control device (LCD 100) and the relative position of the remote controller (remote controller 200).

例如,即使遥控器(因此是用户或视听者)位于相同位置,也会出现如下的情况:作为内容,如果时间是平时的早上,则关于天气预报或交通状况的新闻的优先顺序高,如果是休息日夜晚时间段,则关于艺术或娱乐的内容的优先顺序高。 For example, even if the remote controller (user or viewer is therefore) in the same position, the following conditions also occur: As the content, if the time is usually in the morning, a high priority on the weather or traffic conditions of the press, if it is on the night of rest periods, the order of priority on the content of high art or entertainment.

因此,在该实施方式中,根据在步骤S262中所保存的移动历史信息来推测用户,并且通过由系统控制器230的相应功能部所实现的时刻管理单元来进行计时动作以得到时刻信息,考虑所推测的用户的与时刻相对应的行动类型等,通过由系统控制器230的相应功能部所实现的工作方式选择信息生成单元,执行将上述那样处于一对多的对应关系中的当前位置信息与被控制装置侧的工作方式的关系缩减到一对一的关系的处理(S263)。 Thus, in this embodiment, the movement history information stored in step S262 to infer the user, and the counting operation is performed by the time management section of the respective functional portions of the system controller 230 implemented to obtain the time information, consider the the estimated time corresponding to the type of user actions, by selecting operating mode information generation means by corresponding functional unit of the system controller 230 implemented as described above will be executed in the current position information of the correspondence relationship in many relationship with the mode of operation of the controlled device side is reduced to one to one relationship between the processing (S263). 换言之,步骤S263的动作是生成用于规定被控制装置在任意时刻应该采用的工作方式的工作方式选择信息。 In other words, step S263 is to generate a predetermined operation control means selects the operating mode information mode of operation should be used at any time.

通过上述的信息传输单元,将表示通过步骤S263缩减为一对一关系的当前位置信息与被控制装置侧的工作方式之间的关系的工作方式选择信息传输给液晶电视100侧(S264)。 By the above-described information transmission unit, indicating a relationship between the work step S263 reduced to one relationship with the current position information of the operating mode control means selecting the side information to the side of the liquid crystal television 100 (S264). 液晶电视100侧接收该工作方式选择信息(S161),根据所接收的工作方式选择信息,执行内容选择等的工作模式的选择(S162)。 LCD television receiver 100 side of the operating mode selection information (S161), the mode of operation according to the received selection information selected, execution contents of the operating mode selection (S162).

遥控器侧的步骤S264的动作之后与参照图17所说明的步骤S203相同,对与当前位置计算单元的算出位置相关的累积误差进行复位(S265),结束处理。 After step S264 the same as the operation of the remote side of the step described with reference to FIG. 17 S203, the current position calculation unit calculates the position error associated accumulated is reset (S265), the process ends. 液晶电视侧的动作随着上述步骤S162的执行而结束。 Operation of the LCD TV side with the execution of the above-described step S162 is ended. 根据参照图24所说明的实施方式,通过考虑时刻信息、遥控器(遥控器200)的移动历史信息和遥控器200的当前位置信息的各信息,来选择在某个被管理的时刻(任意时刻)被控制装置(液晶电视100)应采用的工作方式,从而生成工作方式选择信息,并传输给被控制装置侧。 According to the embodiment described with reference to FIG. 24, by considering the time information, current position information of each of the remote controller (remote controller 200) and the movement history information of the remote controller 200 to select (at any time during a certain time to be managed ) by the control device (100) should work LCD TV, thereby generating the working mode selection information, and transmits to the controlled apparatus side. 在接收到该工作方式选择信息的被控制装置侧能够选择考虑了上述各信息的方式的动作。 Receiving selection information on the mode of operation selected by the control device side can consider the operation of the above-described embodiment of the information.

图26是表示本发明的另一实施方式的动作的流程图。 FIG 26 is a flowchart showing the operation of another embodiment of the present invention. 在该实施方式中,作为遥控装置的遥控器的方框图具有图16所示的结构,具有:指示信息生成单元(系统控制器230的相应功能部),其根据相对位置检测单元261的检测输出生成用于确定被控制装置(例如液晶电视)的显示画面(屏幕102)上的位置来进行指示的指示信息;移动轨迹信息生成单元(系统控制器230的相应功能部),其根据上述相对位置检测单元261的检测输出生成关于遥控器200的移动轨迹的移动轨迹信息;用户识别单元(系统控制器230的相应功能部),其根据由该移动轨迹信息生成单元生成的移动轨迹信息生成用于识别用户并表示该识别的用户识别信息。 In this embodiment, a block diagram of a remote controller as a remote control device having the structure shown in FIG 16, comprising: indication information generation unit (the system controller 230 of the respective functional unit) that generates an output based on the detection of the relative position detection unit 261 control means for determining the position (e.g., LCD TV) on the display screen (screen 102) to perform the instruction information; movement trajectory information generating unit (corresponding to the function the system controller 230), which is detected based on the relative position output detecting unit 261 generates movement trajectory information about the moving locus of the remote controller 200; user identification unit (the system controller 230 of the respective functional unit) that generates a identification based on the generated trajectory information by the mobile unit generates movement trajectory information and said user identified by the user identification information.

并且,还具有模式选择单元(系统控制器230的相应功能部),其用于选择如下的三种模式中的任意一个模式,即:根据该当前位置计算单元的当前位置信息来检测自己的位置的位置检测模式、根据上述指示信息来确定液晶电视100的屏幕102上的位置以进行指示的指示模式、根据上述用户识别信息来识别用户的用户识别模式。 And, further comprising mode selection means (corresponding to the function the system controller 230), a mode for selecting any of the following three modes, namely: current position information calculation unit based on the detected current position to the position of its a position detection mode, to determine the position on the screen 102 of the LCD 100 according to the instruction information in an instruction mode indication, the user identification to identify the user based on the user identification information pattern.

在动作的开始,该遥控器(遥控器200)判定通过用户对自己的操作部231的操作而被选择操作的工作模式(S271)。 At the beginning of the operation, the remote controller (remote controller 200) determines the working mode of operation is selected (S271) by a user operation on the operation unit 231 of its own. 当步骤S271中的判定结果是指示模式时,通过检测特性调节单元262对相对位置检测单元261的检测特性进行调节以适合于指示模式(S272),根据对检测特性进行了这样的调节的相对位置检测单元261的检测输出来执行预定的指示动作(S273)。 When it is determined in step S271, a result indicating mode, the detection characteristics of unit 262 the relative position detection unit 261 is adjusted by detecting characteristic is adjusted to fit the indication mode (S272), based on the detection characteristics of the relative position of such adjustment an output detection unit 261 detects an indication to perform a predetermined operation (S273).

当步骤S271中的判定结果是位置检测模式时,通过检测特性调节单元262对相对位置检测单元261的检测特性进行调节以适合于位置检测模式(S274),根据对检测特性进行了这样的调节的相对位置检测单元261的检测输出来执行预定的位置检测动作(S275)。 When it is determined in step S271, a result of the position detection mode, by detecting the characteristic adjusting unit 262 on detection characteristics relative position detection unit 261 is adjusted to be suitable for the position detection mode (S274), based on the detection characteristics of such adjustment relative position detecting unit 261 performs the detection output of the position detecting predetermined operation (S275). 另一方面,当步骤S271中的判定结果是用户识别模式时,通过检测特性调节单元262对相对位置检测单元261的检测特性进行调节以适合于用户识别模式(S276),根据对检测特性进行了这样的调节的相对位置检测单元261的检测输出来执行预定的用户识别动作(S277)。 On the other hand, when it is determined in step S271 is a result of the user identification mode, the characteristic detection unit 262 for detecting the relative position detecting unit 261 is adjusted by adjusting the characteristics to be suitable for identifying the user mode (S276), based on the detection characteristics of the such adjustment of relative position detecting unit 261 of the detection output to perform a predetermined operation of the user identification (S277).

指示动作(S273)、位置检测动作(S275)、用户识别动作(S277)结束后,与参照图17所说明的步骤S203相同,对与当前位置计算单元的算出位置相关的累积误差进行复位(S278),结束处理。 After instructing the operation (S273), the position detecting operation (S275), the user identifying operation (S277) ends, and the step of referring to FIG. 17 similar to those described S203, the calculation of the current position of the means for calculating the position of the accumulated errors associated reset (S278 ), the process ends. 在图25的实施方式中,可以选择性地采用检测自己的位置的位置检测模式、确定相应的被控制装置的显示画面上的位置来进行指示的指示模式、识别用户的用户识别模式的各模式中的任意模式来发挥功能,并且根据所选择的模式来调节相对位置检测单元的检测特性使其变得合适,所以能够将作为遥控器的动作的准确性、精度确保在高水平,并且也将被控制装置侧的动作的准确性、精度确保在高水平。 In the embodiment of FIG. 25, it is possible to selectively detect its own position using a position detection mode, to determine the position on the display screen of the device is controlled by a respective mode indication of an instruction, each of the modes of user identification pattern identifying the user in any mode to function, and adjusts the relative position detecting unit detects the characteristic that it becomes appropriate in accordance with the selected mode, it is possible to remote control operation as accuracy, precision in ensuring a high level, and also the the operation control apparatus side by the accuracy, precision to ensure a high level.

" 即使同时从扬声器LS1和LS2广播上述的解说,因为分别以合适的指向性来广播关于各自所关注的对象的解说,所以游客SP1、SP2能够进行视听而不会去更多地注意干扰。 Even while from the speakers LS1 and LS2 broadcasting the above explanation, as appropriate, respectively directivity to broadcast commentary about the object of their interest, so visitors SP1, SP2 can be viewed and not to pay more attention to interference.

另外,上述例子是应用于全景式大型水族箱的例子,但对于将有限种类的生物进行细分来饲养并展示的比较小型的水族箱,如果采用根据游客的位置以最佳的或自适应性的指向性来广播与游客的视野相适应的解说的结构,则在某种程度的黑暗和噪声环境下也能够实现能非常容易听清的舒适的自动解说系统。 Further, the above example is an example applied to large panoramic aquarium, but for a limited number of organisms to be bred and display segment relatively small aquarium, or if an optimal adaptive The Guest directivity to the structure and vision broadcast tourists adapt explanation, it is in some degree a dark and noisy environments can achieve a comfortable automatic interpretation system can very easily hear of.

在应用于上面的水族馆的实施方式中,根据情况,也可以将解说显示在设置于遥控器上的显示屏上。 In the above embodiment is applied to the aquarium, in some cases, may be provided on the display illustrated on the display of the remote. 另外,在特别小型的水族箱中,因为成为说明对象的生物所移动的范围是有限的,所以可以省略通过被动声纳来捕捉贴在大型水族箱中的各个生物上的超声波标签的信号的设备。 Further, particularly in a small aquarium, because the description of the object becomes a bioactive range of motion is limited, the device may be omitted to capture a signal on the ultrasonic label affixed to each of a large aquarium by passive sonar biological .

上述的图7是表示在与参照图14所说明的控制系统(液晶电视系统)100+200大致相同的控制系统中,遥控器(遥控器200)通过通信单元(参照图16所述的外部设备接口240)来进行与外部的信息处理装置的联络动作的实施方式的示意图。 FIG 7 shows the above-described control system (LCD TV systems) described with reference to FIG 14 is substantially the same control system 100 + 200, the remote controller (remote controller 200) through the communication unit (see FIG. 16, the external device interface 240) to contact a schematic view of the operation of the embodiment of the information processing apparatus outside of. 图7中与图14的对应部分使用相同符号。 The same reference numerals used in FIG. 7 corresponding to portion 14 of FIG.

液晶电视100接收来自与其对应的遥控器200的红外线等的控制信号,以控制其动作。 A control signal such as infrared rays from the LCD TV 100 receives the corresponding remote controller 200 to control its operation. 液晶电视100在其壳体101上具有:放映影像的屏幕102;在比其屏幕102的底边更低的位置处构成立体声式音响装置的左侧扬声器103和右侧扬声器104;以及在该屏幕102的底边的右下方接收来自遥控器200的红外线等的控制信号Sc(利用双点划线来图示)的受光窗105。 LCD 100 has a housing 101 in which: the image projection screen 102; 103 constituting the left speaker and right speaker stereo type audio apparatus 104 at a bottom edge of the screen 102 is lower than a position; and the screen the bottom edge of the lower right 102 receives infrared rays from the remote controller 200 of the control signal Sc (shown using the double dot-dash line) of the light receiving window 105.

另一方面,遥控器200具有能够设置在与液晶电视100(其壳体101)相分离的位置处的独立的壳体201。 On the other hand, the remote controller 200 has a separate housing 201 can be provided at a position of the liquid crystal television 100 (housing 101 thereof) of the phase separation. 其内部结构的方框图与图16相同。 The block diagram of the same as its internal structure 16 of FIG. 并且,包括上述的液晶电视100和遥控器200而构成本发明的控制系统(液晶电视系统)100+200。 And, including the above-described liquid crystal television 100 and a remote controller 200 constitute a control system (liquid crystal television system) of the present invention is 100 + 200. 并且,在红外线等的控制信号Sc中,除了表示用于根据操作者的任意操作来控制液晶电视100的信息本身的信号之外,还包括表示关于液晶电视与遥控器间的通信的各种信息的信号,这一点与参照图14所说明的实施方式相同。 Further, in the infrared control signal Sc or the like, for controlling information in addition to that of the liquid crystal television 100 according to the signal itself outside of any operation of an operator, further comprising represent various information regarding the communication between the liquid crystal television and remote control embodiment same signal, which is described with reference to FIG 14.

如参照图16所说明的那样,遥控器200中具有作为通信单元的外部设备接口240,其与作为外部信息处理装置的个人计算机300进行通信。 The external device interface having a communication unit as a reference, the remote controller 16 illustrated in FIG. 200 240, which communicates with the personal computer 300 as an external information processing apparatus. 更严谨地说,由外部设备接口240和与其连接的系统控制器230中的相应功能部等构成通信单元。 More strictly, the corresponding function like the external device interface unit 230 and a system controller 240 connected thereto constitutes a communication unit.

由于个人计算机300还与接口400连接,所以除了自己所保存的数据之外,还能够通过接口400取得并使用各种数据。 Since the personal computer 300 is also connected to the interface 400, so that in addition to their stored data, and also use of various data can be acquired via the interface 400. 因此,根据图28的控制系统,除了图14的控制系统的作用之外,通过该通信单元来利用外部的信息处理装置的功能,从而能够以简单的结构来进行更高一层的控制,而不会大幅增加所述遥控器自己的负担。 Thus, according to the control system of FIG. 28, in addition to the action of the control system 14, via the communication means to the information processing apparatus using an external function, thereby enabling a simple structure to a higher level of control, and the remote control will not significantly increase their burden.

在遥控器200中,为了进行参照图14~图25所说明的动作,必须预先进行所需的学习,并将其结果存储在存储器231中。 In the remote controller 200, to operation 25 in FIG. 14 to be described with reference to FIG, learning must be previously required, and result in the memory 231. 另外,在通过改建等变更了如参照图19所说明的房子内部的布局的情况下,或者在即使没有变更房子内部的布局,但改变了液晶电视的设置、其它家具类的设置,从而改变了本系统的预定的用户移动路线的情况下,每次都必须修正学习内容。 Further, in a case where by alterations to change the layout of the interior of the house as described with reference to FIG described 19, or even without changing the layout of the interior of the house, but changing the setting LCD TV, other furniture is provided, thus changing the a case where a predetermined movement route of the user of the present system, must be corrected each time the learning content.

在图7的系统中,可以提供对应于这样的变更而进行重新学习的情况下的支援程序,或者可以为用户提供如下的各种便利:针对房子内部的布局属于已定的改建模式等情况,寻求取得与修正后的布局对应的建筑平面图的方法等,通过上述通信单元取得信息,或者接受指导或支援等。 In the system of Figure 7, the program may provide support in case corresponding to such changes and re-learning, or can provide a variety of convenience for the user as follows: belong case has been scheduled for reconstruction mode the internal layout of the house, looking layout corresponding to the building plan view acquires the correction method to obtain information through the communication means, guidance or the like or accept support.

在上述所说明的系统中,在识别(在参照图19的说明中表现为判定,下面称为判定)用户的处理中,虽然说明了根据遥控器的位置或移动轨迹来自动判定的情况,但也可以在该处理中采用对话形式的人机界面的方法。 In the system described above, the identification (expressed in reference to FIG. 19 is determined, hereinafter referred determination) processing of a user, has been described in accordance with the position where the remote control or automatically determined trajectories, but the method can also be used in the form of a dialogue process human-machine interface. 即,虽然图18中的被控制装置(液晶电视100)侧的步骤S112的处理、图20中的控制装置(遥控器200)侧的步骤S222的处理以及图13中的控制装置(遥控器200)侧的步骤S277的处理中的任意一个处理都是进行自动判定,但也可以在其用户判定处理中导入对话形式的方法。 That is, in step although in FIG. 18 is a control device (liquid crystal television 100) side of the processing in S112, the control device 13 in step side in FIG. 20 the control device (remote controller 200) S222 is processing, and FIG. (Remote controller 200 ) side of the processing in step S277 to any one of the automatic determination processing is performed, but the method of treatment may also be introduced into the form of a dialogue in which the user is determined.

图28是对在用户判定处理中导入对话形式的方法的例子进行说明的流程图。 FIG 28 is a flowchart of an example of the determination method for processing user session introduced form will be described. 在该流程图中,抽象表现为对应于在控制装置(遥控器200)侧执行用户判定处理的情况和在被控制装置(液晶电视100)侧执行用户判定处理等的情况的双方。 In this flowchart, corresponding to the abstract expression in the case of the user side performs judgment processing and control means are both in the (liquid crystal television 100) determines where the user side performs the processing of a control device (remote controller 200). 当进入该处理时,首先,针对作为控制装置的遥控器200(因此是拿着遥控器的用户)的位置或移动轨迹的信息(下面称为移动轨迹信息),根据与该移动轨迹信息和用户的对应关系相关的已知信息(在第一次的时候设定合适的所谓默认值的信息)与新检测出的信息的相关性,推测是用户的可能性的从高到低顺序(S281),显示出可识别实际用户(S282)。 When entering the process, first of all, as for the remote control device 200 (and therefore the user is holding the remote control) the location information or movement locus (movement trajectory information referred to below), in accordance with the movement trajectory information and the user the correspondence relationship of related known information (information in the first set when a so-called default values ​​appropriate) correlation information newly detected, is estimated in descending order of the possibility of a user (S281) , shown to identify the actual user (S282).

在遥控器200中显示该显示的情况下,设置公知方式的液晶显示部并在其上进行显示,或者向对应的液晶电视传输用于显示的信号并在其屏幕上进行显示。 The display of the display in the remote controller 200, the liquid crystal is provided in a known manner and a display unit displaying thereon, or a signal to the liquid crystal TV display corresponding to the transmission and displayed on its screen. 进行待机直至有来自用户的关于对该显示进行视认并判断优先顺序适合与否的响应(S283),根据响应内容,判断有无来自实际用户的对所显示的优先顺序的变更指示(S284)。 From the user waits until a display on the visibility and determines whether or not the priority order for the response (S283), based on the response content, decides whether there is an instruction to change the priority of the actual user of the displayed (S284) .

当有来自用户的优先顺序的变更指示时(该情况下,在步骤S282的显示中最高位所显示的用户名不是该实际的用户,实际的用户为了使自己变为最高位而移动光标,通过在相应位置处按下决定按钮等适当的操作而发出变更指示),更新既定的优先顺序的信息以更新关于判断的正确程度的学习内容(移动轨迹信息与用户的每一个对应关系的发生频率的统计值等)(S285)。 When the priority order change instruction from the user (in this case, in step S282 the user name displayed in the most significant bit is displayed is not the actual user, the actual user in order to make themselves into the most significant bit to move the cursor by pressing the decision button or the like at proper operation at the corresponding position change instruction is issued), a predetermined update information to update the priority level of the learning content for the correct determination of the frequency of occurrence of each of a correspondence relationship (movement trajectory information with the user's statistics, etc.) (S285).

紧接着步骤S285,将更新后的优先顺序为最高位的用户(即,由实际的用户进行了使自己变为最高位的操作的用户)决定为判定对象(S286)。 Then in step S285, the updated priority order for the user the most significant bit (i.e., becomes the highest conducted so that their position by the user operation is the actual user) is determined as an object is determined (S286). 另一方面,当没有来自用户的优先顺序的变更指示时(该情况下,步骤S282的显示中在最高位所显示的用户名与该实际的用户没有不同,实际用户通过按下决定按钮等适当的操作来表示现状的判断是正确),维持既定的优先顺序的信息,将关于现状的优先顺序的判断的正确性作为高正确性来进行学习(S287)。 On the other hand, when no priority change instruction from the user (in this case, step S282 is displayed in the user name displayed in the most significant bit of the actual user is not different from the actual user presses the decision button or the like appropriate operating judge to represent status quo is correct), to maintain the established order of priority information, will determine the priorities on the status of correctness as to the correctness of high learning (S287).

在如步骤S285那样更新既定的优先顺序的信息,并且该实际的用户将其优先顺序变更为最高位的情况下,将在该改变后的优先顺序中的最高位的顺序的用户判定为该用户(S286),另一方面,在如步骤S287那样不更新既定的优先顺序的信息的情况下,将现状下的最高位的优先顺序的用户判定为该用户(S288),结束用户判定处理。 In step that updates the predetermined priority information S285, and the actual user to change the order of priority for the case where the most significant bit, the most significant bit in order to change the priority order after the user determines that the user in the case (S286), on the other hand, as the update information is not a predetermined priority order in step S287, the highest priority status bit in the user determines that the user (S288), the user ends the determination process.

通过在用户判定处理中采用上述的对话形式的人机界面的方法,使得使用次数越高越能够提高判定的精度,可以实现越使用越能够提高使用性的系统。 By using the above method in the form of a dialogue user determination processing man-machine interface, such that the higher the frequency of use determination accuracy can be improved, can be realized using the more the system can be improved usability. 因此,能够以高精度辨别性情类似的用户并进行正确判定。 Accordingly, it is possible to accurately identify the nature and similar user accurately determined. 另外,一旦一个通过学习了特殊的移动(改变遥控器的姿势或摇动等动作)来判定自己的用户被其他用户读取了动作,则通过使本系统学习其它的动作或移动轨迹与用户的不同对应关系,也能够实现隐私的保护。 In addition, once a user is to determine its read operation of another user, through the learning by the learning system of the present special movement (changing the posture of the remote controller or the like swinging action) or other actions of the user different trajectories correspondence, it is possible to achieve protection of privacy.
