Device system with such devices, methods for realizing the system and computer program product for implementing the method

The present invention relates to a portable electronic device according to the preamble of claim 1, a technical system with such devices, a method for realizing such a technical system and a computer program product for selectively realizing such a method.

At the present time, a plurality of portable elec- tronic devices with touch screen image representations of the apparatus and controls the image representations of the device and the device using the image representations by touching with and without touch gestures of the touch screen, for example, with one or more fingers of a user of the device known. Such devices are prepared, for example as a mobile phone, smart phone, iPad, eBook Reader, Personal Digital Assistant IPMENT (PDA), GPS, tablet PC and so on. Such devices can be, for example, with pointers to one or more fingers on the touch screen like to control. Not only a single tap is on the touch screen is used, but also touch gestures such as wiping, for example with a finger on the touch screen. Also apart or together pulling example, two fingers on the touch screen is possible as an exemplary touch gesture. The result of such contacts or touch gestures is an appropriate control of the image display or the features of the device or the active programs on your device.

Meanwhile, such devices are clustered within a narrowly defined environment to find. All of these devices work independently, that is, gene only on themselves bezo-. This is also true with regard to the respective touch screens of the respective devices to. In addition, the touch screens of the individual devices are often very small, because the devices themselves are designed to be very small. On the other hand, often much image content to be displayed on the touch screens, which it opens that individual representation details be very small.

If keyboard text to be entered at the top of the touch screen, for example, on the touch screen of a rela- tively small smartphone with a displayed at the bottom of the touch screen Soft, the visible text area is smaller than it should be because of the presentation of the Soft keyboard used image area of ​​the touch screen for the text area is no longer available. Conversely, that also the area for displaying the soft keyboard is reduced and thus the soft keyboard can be displayed only correspondingly small. Remedy is achieved when a separate, externally connectable keyboard is used, but this is a separate second device and is laborious and expensive.

Similar problems exist when the options may also display with text input on the touch screen contents of the browser window. Specifically, the image contents of the browser windows are often very complex, so that the individual details are shown only very small. The aforementioned soft keyboard represents a self-contained control area or image content that is not bound to a fixed position within an image representation. He may possibly be also moved to a different location. Such full fiscal areas or image contents occur in the course of displayable image content frequently and often bundled. But moving such downed control areas or image content is possible only within the existing touch screen so that an enlargement of an enclosed control range or image content always comes at the expense of the size of the other full fiscal areas or image content. To avoid this problem, it is possible borrowed, not to change the size of the other full fiscal areas or image content, but to turn them temporarily into the background and if necessary to the fore again. The disadvantage is that many switching and that all image information is not constantly available simultaneously.

often on the other side is, as mentioned above, a plurality of above-mentioned devices simultaneously active in a confined environment, but in each case a so-called stand-alone device. The touch screens of the respective individual devices are not available for on-screen display of the other devices with various advantages. The object of the present invention is therefore to provide an apparatus, a technical system with such devices, a method for realizing the technical system and a computer program product for implementing the method with which the various advantages available through an altered display of screen display of a single device concerned be made.

This object is achieved with respect to the device, starting from a device of the type described at the outset according to the invention in that the device in question has the characterizing features of patent claim 1. This object is also achieved with respect to the technical system according to the invention in that the technical system comprising the features of patent claim 10. This object is also achieved with respect to the method for realizing the technical system according to the invention in that the method comprises the steps specified in claim. 13 This object is finally achieved with respect to the Computerprogrammpro- domestic product according to the invention characterized in that the computer program product comprising the features of patent claim 22.

Regarding the device according to the invention the task is DA achieved by that apparatus according to the invention comprises a synchronization interface for such synchronization at the same time with at least one such same further device, that for the inventive apparatus, a total touch screen consisting of the touch screens of the individual to each other synchronized device is formed such that at least parts of an image representation of the device according to the invention the control of the inventive device on the touch screens of selected synchronized with each other the same additional devices are as originally operably represented.

Thus, the device according to the invention does not necessarily work only as a so-called stand-alone devices, but possibly also interdisciplinary with other inventive overall councils together. The components of respective existing inventive device advantageously be used in this way and remain not only potentially because interdisciplinary unused available. With respect to the technical system, the task is solved by the invention that is provided a plurality of such synchronized with each other according to the invention devices is that for one of the synchronized interconnected devices according to the invention, a total touch screen consisting formed of the touch screens of the individual synchronized with each other devices such that at least parts of a image representation of a device according to the invention controlled by a device according to the invention on the touch screens of selected synchronized with each other lized equipment as originally on a device according to the invention are functionally represented. The advantage of such a technical system, that when keyboard to enter text, for example, on the touch screen of a belonging to the technical system apparatus with a soft and, in this case, for example, an upper portion of the associated touch screen for the text and a lower region for the presentation of the software is used keyboard, for example, the soft keyboard on the touch screen of another device of the technical system outsourced and there then permanently Magni- maximum ßert be represented, while on the original inventive device the local entire touch screen for text display, for example, either is used simultaneously with more displayable text or with even larger letters or both. The soft keyboard is so functional, as it was originally functional, that is, they react remains in a corresponding manner, for example, to corresponding finger taps.

should be mentioned at this point that the soft keyboard is only representative of any other logical completed control areas or display areas, of which at the same time more may be present incidentally on the same screen. In such a case, one or the other completed control area or display area or can also buy several such settling these areas or display areas to be outsourced simultaneously on one or more other devices of the invention for local display on the local touch screens. Regardless of how comparable shares the full fiscal areas or display areas are outsourced, they stay put touch-sensitive available for the original question inventive device. Another example is the display of high-resolution images on the touch screen of a device according to the invention in question. In accordance with the invention coupled touch screens of inventive devices in a system according to the invention, for example, such images on the touch screens of the devices involved in the technical system can each completely or else only partially applied with a corresponding increase in effect. Inverted is correspondingly possible. Furthermore, for example by corresponding touch gestures so on possible, just as with the original touch screen also such as wiping or rotating, and so on corresponding moving, rotating, and tilting.

Affirms should once again that outsourcing of these screens does not necessarily mean that each full paging must be done. It can also only partially carried outsourcing, so that for example only a portion of a respective screen display to another touch screen. The other part is meanwhile still on the original touch screen. All in all, a fluent setting of Equip outsourcing of its closed screen display is ranges between different touch screens possible, it also being possible interruptions in the flow of a swap happen.

Regarding the process for implementing the technical system of the invention is the inventive devices

Task according to the invention, the method comprising:

- switching devices according to the invention in a either active or standby mode for a mutual synchronization such that for one of the synchronized devices to each other according to the invention is a Gesamtberührungsbild- screen consisting formed of the touch screens of the individual other devices synchronized with each other according to the invention in such a way that at least parts an image representation of a device according to the invention controlled by a device according to the invention are functionally displayed on the touch screens of selected synchronized with each other according to Inventions devices such as original,

- recognizing each other is still at the said active or standby mode according to the invention from devices from each one of the devices according to the invention,

- Preparing a synchronizing with each other is still at the said active or standby mode, and detected as such devices according to the invention, starting from each one of the devices according to the invention,

- synchronizing with each other is still at the said active or standby mode, and detected as such devices according to the invention, starting from each one of the devices according to the invention, and

- image representing a resultant each for a respective device according to the invention ER due to the distributed image display on the touch screens of the devices for this purpose synchronized with each other according to the invention by the respective image display device according to the invention. Device according to the invention, performing such steps, form advantageously a thus favorable technical system potentially available resources, which are used so far related only individual devices, is now using spread devices.

As regards the computer program product for implementing the method according to the invention when using the computer program product on a device according to the invention the task is solved according to the invention by a domestic product Computerprogrammpro- having a computer program forming program code means for selectively implementing the method according to the invention.

Such a computer program product has the advantages that it can be handled initially described independently of an inventive device as described above, it can then at a later stage of an inventive device as described above applied or incorporated into such a device with the advantage of being able the optional there usefulness of the computer program product, and that it is offset in the benefit through an inventive device this device according to the invention in a position to carry out the method above loading required according to the invention, again with the advantage that the device in question according to the invention together with corresponding other such inventive devices to implement technical system of the invention with the associated advantages described above.

Advantageous embodiments of the invention are subject matter of subclaims.

The use of agents which constitutes a Synchronisationsschnitt- provide for a continuous wireless synchronization of Equip available, has the advantage that synchronization can be performed independently by a separate connecting line, and thereby a very free handling of existing devices is given. In addition, the existing NEN devices need not be placed necessarily in a very close mutual environment. Wireless interfaces allow greater distances between devices.

For wireless interfaces working in Advantageous ter way, already known interfaces such as Bluetooth,

WLAN (Wireless LAN), ZigBee, NFC (near field communication), Wibree-, VLC (Visual Light Communication) or WiMAX interfaces are used. Possible but other wireless interfaces are. Next, several different wireless interfaces can be used simultaneously. The scope of the invention is thereby further increased.

With wired synchronization interface a very high degree is achieved in synchronization security and safety in the maintenance of mutual synchronization. Known wired interfaces such as a USB interface can be used for this purpose. but other wired interfaces can also be used. By means of a mechanical link to individual devices according to the invention can also be mechanically interconnected so that a device unit results with a fixed structure. It is advantageous if this mechanical connection member is formed articulated. This makes it possible to each other at a predetermined angle and fix inven- tion contemporary devices. If necessary, they can also handle such a device with a lid.

A mechanical connection member has the further advantage that it can be combined simultaneously with a wired interface.

The invention can be particularly advantageous in devices such as mini-computers, mobile communication terminals, mobile phones, smart phones, iPads, eBook readers, PDAs, navigation devices, tablet computers or related equipment, all of which have the problem of a small screen, but very numerous in circulation are and often have touch screens.

In providing means for control of synchronized with each other devices through eye movements, speaking, and / or body movements of a use of the invention even in the presence of corresponding disability is possible.

Are according to the invention and used in the invention devices arranged in a matrix structure, in this way a kind of large screen can be realized. With the detailed steps of a compact implementation of synchronization and use of the invention in question devices takes place. To the detailed steps include in particular the following group steps:

- Answering a relation to its own readiness a strange willingness to form the technical system signaling, sender attributable to foreign standby signal at arrival of foreign ready signal,

- outputting a receiving a foreign stand - by signal signaling, sender assignable of YOUR OWN nen acknowledgment signal

- receiving a confirmation signal at external arrival of the external confirmation signal;

- Requesting manually entered information about an optionally specific master or slave assignment and a concrete slave assignment via an optionally concrete matrix image segment -Zuordnung after receiving at least a single acknowledgment signal,

- Check interactively with the knowledge of the sender of entge- gengenommenen acknowledgment signals the confirmation signal sender assignments and their own assignment for the presence of only a single master assignment,

- Requesting with knowledge of the sender of opposite taken confirmation signals, the matrix image segment - assignments of the acknowledgment signal senders, at its own master map;

- synchronizing the interactive touch screens of the acknowledgment signals issuing devices into a single overall samtberührungsbildschirm for the device with master map in function of the specific master, the concrete slave and the concrete matrix image segment Mappings.

When connected in a so-called active mode according to the invention products of the following detail contributes -Verfahrensschritt for realizing a synchronizing of the inventive devices for: - outputting an assignable to the sender's own stand - by signal for signaling the own willingness to form a technical system according to one of Claims 10 until 12.

It is particularly advantageous if the method steps take into account an error handling, which is given by the following method step: - reporting an error with or without correction capability, and with or without a change in a predetermined working state uordnungen at least upon detection of the presence of more than two master. Further particularly advantageous when the synchronized devices to query specific parameters and pass, so that they can be included in the image display on the so-called third-party devices is. Such takes into account the following groups-process steps, namely in accordance with the invention synchronized devices that have a so-called master map and an image representation to those obtained by the synchronization total touch - screen control, which is optionally formed with touch screens of technically different inventive devices:

- Requesting with knowledge of the sender of counter taken acknowledgment signals from image display parameters of the touch screens of the confirmation signal sender assigned Neten equipment at its own master map,

- dividing an image to be displayed at least in part on the individual touch screens of the extended Gesamtberuhrungsbildschirms at its own master map, and:

- taking into account the respective image display parameters of the respective touch screens of the respective devices of the extended total touch screen when dividing a total of displayed image on the individual touch screens (2) of the extended total touch screen.

The technical system 11 shown in Figure 2 includes three devices 1, wherein the device 1 respective smartphones la, lb and lc are. Each of these devices 1, with respect to its synchronization interface 6 for wireless bidirectional data communication 7 to a correspondingly wide or less wide wireless transmission range 12a, 12b and 12c. In detail, the transmission area 12a for the device la, the transmission area 12b to the unit lb and the transmission portion 12c to the device lc.

As the figure 2 also shows, the transmitting portions 12a and 12b of the devices la and lb overlap each other, so that the devices la or lb respectively to the other device or lb la bidirectional data communication can perform. 7 The device lc is located according to the figure 2, although within the transmission ranges of the devices la or lb, so that the device lc can indeed receive the transmissions of the devices la or lb. The transmission range of the device lc but does not extend through the device la or lb addition, so that these devices can not receive shipments of the device lc. A bi-directional data communication between devices 7 lc and la or lc and lb is therefore not feasible.

The result can be formed with the devices la and lb, an inventive system 11, but not with the devices la and / or lb and lc. Figures 3 to 6 show examples of displayable on an inventive device 1 symbols that indicate a given current status of people participating in a structure of a technical system of the invention Unit 1. Figure 3 shows particularly an example of a first symbol 13 for the status of the device 1, in which the device 1 other devices willingness 1 notifies to want to establish an inventive technical system. 11 Figure 4 particularly shows an example of a second symbol 14 for the status of the device 1, in which it receives its readiness to form a technical system 11 according to the invention indicating signal from another device according to the invention. 1

Figure 5 shows in particular an example of a of the first symbol 13 and the second symbol 14 composed third symbol 15 for the status of the device 1, in which it is just about a connection for a bidirectional DA tenkommunikation invention 7 with at least one other device 1 for forming a technical system 11 according to the invention with this construct at least one device 1 of the invention. Figure 6 shows in particular an example of a first one of the symbol 13, second symbol 14, and folded first symbol 16 composed fourth symbol 17 for the status of the device 1, where it according to the invention a connection for a bidirectional data communication 7 with at least one other device 1 and shows an inventive technical system 11 has built up a single device 1 according to the invention with this at least.

Figures 7 and 8 show details of an inventive technical system 11 with the inventive devices 1 in a first (figure 7) and second (figure 8) situation. The technical system 11 in Figures 7 and 8 is formed with experienced inventive devices 1, some of which are designated by the reference numerals la, lb, lc, ld, le, lf, lg, lh and Ii. The technical systems 11 of Figures 7 and 8 are identical, so identical or placed gleichbenannte devices 1 respectively, the same devices 1 are. In the Figu- ren 7 and 8 are a plurality of devices according to the invention

I technical system of the invention for the thus formed

II shown. The minimum requirement for only two devices according to the invention may be used first Regardless of how many devices 1 belonging to the present invention the technical system 11, two mutually neighboring may barschaftlich arranged to each other synchronized devices 1 with a mechanical link 10 (Figure 15) with a selectable and / or selected folding angle between them, with each other be mechanically connected.

The technical system 11 according to Figures 7 and 8 has a plurality of the thus synchronized with each other devices 1 that for one, here for the device la, the synchronized with each device 1, an overall touch panel 9 consisting of the touch screens of each other, here the device lb is formed to Ii, synchronized with each other units 1 such that at least parts of an image representation of a, here the device la, the device 1 is controlled by the one, here device la, device 1 on the touch screens of selected together synchronized other, here units lb to ii, device 1, as originally functioning here as on the devices la represented.

According to the illustrations of Figures 7 and 8, the respective devices 1 according to the invention furthermore are arranged in a matrix structure with exact rows and columns as the respective cutout figure 18 shows. However, such alignment is not necessarily needed. It can not be occupied by devices 1 or be freely distributed individual matrix positions. Depending on the arrangement of the devices 1 with each other at their mutual synchronization image portions which are assigned to a vacant position can then be simply hidden or might be directly associated with the closest device. 1 Overall, many application structures are possible here and released by corresponding agreements of the related devices one another.

In the present embodiment according to the figures 7 and 8, the exact matrix structure is selected. Here, in Figure 7 the device la shows on its touch-sensitive touch screen, a touch technically functional on this touch screen image presentation, this image representation is due to the fact that this image representation is shown only on a small touch screen is relatively small.

Characterized in that the apparatus la part of the invention, the technical system is 11 and the individual touch screens of the individual devices, for example Ia to Ii approximately screen a Gesamtberüh- 9 form, for example, for a device la, by appropriate contact of or the touch screens of the devices la are mounted to Ii, the image representation of the device la through the touch screen of the device la addition, for example, and distributed over the touch screens of the device Ia to Ii with appropriate magnification redrawn (Figure 8). but all other types of image manipulation are also possible, such as turning and so on. Also launching as applica- tions by, for example, double-tapping on certain points of the image display for as obtaining additional information can go from Equip. Furthermore, only individual representation of parts or presentation - areas of an original image display on other loading rührungsbildschirme the system be restated.

In the figure 9 a possible flow chart with respect to a general principle operation of a device 1 according to the invention is shown. At a starting time point, the overall advises is 1 with respect to the willingness to formation of an inventive system 11 is switched either in an active or in a passive mode.

In the active mode, a device 1 outputs a readiness for education of a technical system 11 to other devices 1 signal indicative thereof. In addition, the device 1 such a signal by others also in the formation of the technical system tries to detect 11-ready devices first The switched into the passive mode devices 1 try to recognize 11 indicating, sent from other devices 1 signal only a willingness to form a technical system. A device 1 which is connected neither to the said assets still in said passive mode, is not available for the formation of the technical system. 11

Is a said signal from a loading place located in said active or passive mode device 1 detected, the unit 1 concerned starts the preparation for the corresponding synchronization with the respectively corresponding other devices. In preparation for synchronization appropriate information is exchanged, required by the respective devices to ensure the functioning of the technical device. 11

After completion of the preparation of synchronization is synchronized with the effect that at the end of synchronizing a technical system 11 exists in which each of the belonging to the formed technical system 11 Device 1 represents images that are distributed in each case for the device 1 due to resulting image displays on the touch screens 2 for this purpose, synchronized with each other devices 1 from the original non-divided image representations.

In parallel, the successful synchronization can checked and outputting image representations are only given freely when the synchronization was successful. If synchronization is successful and there is to be output, a split image, the split image is output. Otherwise, everything is left as it is. Subsequently, it is checked whether the passive mode of the relevant device 1 is off. Is not from the passive mode, the device 1 in question 11 ready device 1 jumps back to the point of execution of recognizing one for the formation of the technical system. If the passive mode, it will execute a system checked whether the active mode is off. Is not the active mode, the device 1 in question moves back into the point of the execution of the outputting of the readiness for the formation of the technical system 11 indicative signal. If the active mode and from the device 1 in question is again only for the formation of a technical system 11 is available when it is switched to the active or passive mode. If a non-successful synchronization detected during system checked successful synchronization, a single leap takes place in the point of Abprüfens whether the passive mode is turned off.

In parallel, both in terms of total assets and in terms of the total passive mode can be checked the correctness and monitored, with appropriate corrective actions can be taken on failure. Should not be initiated troubleshooting, the device in question 1 for the formation of a technical system 11 may be not provided until the problem is resolved. Reaches a respective device 1 in the state of knowledge for the formation of the technical system 11 ready devices 1, takes place, as the figure 10 shows, first, a system checked whether for the formation of the technical system 11 ready or newly coming ready device 1 detected becomes. If this is not the case, an entry point occurs in the point of Abprüfens if successful Synchronize exists. If such a device one recognized, it is an answer the opposite of their own readiness a strange willingness to form the technical system 11 signalisieren- the, sender attributable to foreign standby signal at arrival of foreign ready signal. Followed by outputting the receiving of foreign stand - by signal signaling, sender assignable own confirmation signal. Based recognition-ready devices 1 that a so-called foreign apparatus 1 responds with an acknowledgment signal to its own ready signal which answer the external acknowledgment signal upon arrival of the foreign confirmation signal occurs. In Figure 11, the operation mode of preparing the synchronizing is exemplary shown. In this operating mode, a request or receive manually entered information about an optional specific master or slave is done uordnung. In a concrete slave assignment further comprises a requesting and receiving of information to be entered manually via an optional concrete matrix picture segment assignment by a single receipt of at least one acknowledgment signal is performed. Subsequently, a check is performed interactively with the knowledge of the sender of counter taken acknowledgment signals the assignments of the confirmation signal senders, and their own assignment for the presence of only a single master map. Finally, a request is done with knowledge of the sender of opposite taken confirmation signals, the matrix image segment - the acknowledgment signal sender assignments in its own master map. In operating mode, synchronizing the interactive synchronizing the touch screens 2 of the acknowledgment signals device 1 issuing a single Gesamtberührungsbild- screen 9 of the apparatus 1 with master map in function of the specific master, the concrete slave and the concrete matrix image segment - assignments.

When preparing of synchronization can be checked for errors in parallel, with a reporting an error correction capability, with or without and with or without change in a predetermined operating condition is carried out at least upon detection of the presence of more than two master assignments.

In a separate master map during preparation of synchronizing a request with regard to the sender of opposite taken acknowledgment signals from image display parameters of the touch screens 2 of the confirmation signal sender associated device 1 takes place.

In addition, a dividing a displayed image at least in part on the individual touch screens 2 of the extended total touch screen 9. occurs at a own master map when winding course of the main method Here, a Consider 1 takes place respectively the Bilddarstel- lung parameters of the respective touch screens 2 of the respective devices of the total extended touch panel 9 while dividing a total of displayed image on the individual touch screens 2 of the extended total touch screen. 9

The respective devices 1 described above are equipped with a computer program product or be equipped, comprising a salt formed with program code means computer program for selectively implementing the method according to one of claims 13 to 21 when executing the computer program on the device. 1

Figure 13 concretely shows an inventive device 1 in an elongated horizontal position with a known common image representation which is substantially composed of a lower part of text input by means of a so-called soft keyboard, and an upper text display part. As shown in an uppermost line of the image to recognize a symbol 17, loading the device 1 shown will take place in an inventive synchronization with one another, not shown in the figure 13 of the present invention device 1, with which it forms an inventive technical system. 11 In the figure, 14 is referred to with respect to Figure 13 technical system 11 according to the invention shown. Here, the body responsible for the text input image display area of ​​the entire original image display area, has already pushed for example, with corresponding finger touch, which is not shown per se and indicated only by an arrow Cross 19/2 from the touch panel 2 of the original device la and the touch panel 2 the unit lb involved more on the technical system 11 pushed. The cross arrow 19 indicates that said image display range can be shifted at the moment in all directions. In Figure 15, the technical system 11 is 14 to see the figure, responsible for the text input image display area has already been shifted completely to the touch panel 2 of the second device lb on which he overall nauso usable as the original device la for the apparatus 1 is operable.

As Figure 15 also shows the charge of the text input image display area on the screen is Berührungsbild- 2 of the device lb been fitted and a maximum size mounted. Also responsible for the text display text display part has been enlarged to the original device la. This has been indicated in Figure 15 respectively with Aufziehpfeilen 20th

In sum therefore represents both an enlarged text display part and an enlarged soft keyboard.

Many other display options here are also conceivable.
