Abstract

PROBLEM TO BE SOLVED: To simultaneously detect the moving amounts of X, Y, and Z directions, and to output them to electronic equipment by using integral two axial or three axial acceleration detector.
SOLUTION: A two axial or three axial acceleration detector is mounted in X and Y direction on an inputting device circuit board, and a remote controller is moved vertically and to the right and left instead of a key operation, so that the output of the detector can be calculated, and that the change of the instructing direction can be outputted to the electronic equipment.

【0001】 [0001]

【発明の属する技術分野】この発明は、一体型2軸又は3軸加速度検出器を組み込み、上下左右の方向情報を電子機器に出力するリモートコントロール装置に関するものである。 TECHNICAL FIELD The present invention relates to a remote control device incorporating the integrated 2-axis or 3-axis acceleration detector, and outputs the direction information of the vertical and horizontal to the electronic device.

【0002】 [0002]

【従来の技術】これまでのリモートコントロール入力装置は、表面パネルに配置した押しボタンスイッチを操作し、赤外線をその信号により変調し機器に送信していた。 BACKGROUND ART Remote control input device so far, by operating the push button switch disposed on a surface panel it had transmitted the infrared rays modulated device by the signal. テレビ放送受信機を例にとると、この方法は、テンキー等による受信チャンネルの変更や上下方向を選択するスクロールキーを操作してする音量の調整等のように、頻繁に操作を行う機能については効果的だが、画質や音質の調整をする場合など詳細設定を要する場合には、画面上に何層にもわたる選択画面を呼び出すため、 Taking a television broadcast receiver as an example, this method, as the adjustment of the volume to use the scroll key to select a change or vertical receiving channel a numeric keypad or the like, the frequent function of performing operation effective it is, but if you require advanced settings, such as the case of the adjustment of image quality and sound quality, to call the selection screen also over the many layers on the screen,
複雑なキー操作を必要としていた。 A complicated key operation has been required. これまでにもビデオ信号内の走査線の本数等を取得して位置情報を得る方法が行われているが、この方法ではプロジェクタ方式等、 So far the method of obtaining the position information by obtaining the like number of scanning lines in the video signal is being performed is also, projector system or the like in this way,
解像度の低い装置において遠隔した位置からの制御には採用が困難であった。 Adopted for control from a remote position at a low resolution device has been difficult. 又、互いに関連して動作する電子機器を相互に操作する必要がある場合、複数のリモートコントロール装置を手元で操作するか、又は一台の同装置に各機器に与える指示内容を記憶させる等、どちらにしても複雑な操作が要求され、状況によっては誤操作による損害発生の可能性があった。 Further, etc. to store the instruction contents given to each device when either operate multiple remote control device at hand, or on a single same apparatus it is necessary to operate with each other electronic device operating in conjunction with each other, either way, complicated operations are required even if, there is a possibility of damage caused by an erroneous operation in some circumstances.

【0003】 [0003]

【発明が解決しようとする課題】この発明は2軸又は3 [Problems that the Invention is to Solve] The present invention 2-axis or 3-
軸加速度検出器を使用し、上記のキー操作に代えてリモートコントロール装置を上下左右に動かすことにより上記検出器の出力を演算して指示方向が変わったことを、 Use the axis acceleration detector, that instead of the key operation is instructed direction by calculating the output of the detector by moving the remote control device in the vertical and horizontal changes,
電子機器に出力するものである。 And outputs it to the electronic equipment. これにより、テレビの副画面に表示された選択機能が視覚的に一致することになり、操作性が飛躍的に向上する。 This makes it possible to select functions displayed on the sub screen of the television is visually matched, the operability is remarkably improved. また、リモートコントロール装置と複数の電子機器間においては、各機器の個別識別標識をリモートコントロール装置に記憶させることで、送受信素子の指向特性から除去できない各機器間のクロストークによる干渉を防止し、個別の機器を操作しているようにすることが可能である。 In the inter-remote control device and a plurality of electronic devices, by storing the individual identification label of each device in the remote control device, to prevent interference due to crosstalk between the devices can not be removed from the directional characteristics of the transmitting and receiving devices, it is possible to make operating the individual devices.

【0004】 [0004]

【課題を解決するための手段】その構成を説明すると、 (イ) リモートコントロール装置回路基盤上に2軸又は3軸加速度検出器を取付ける。 To explain the Means for Solving the Problems] As a structure, attaching the 2-axis or 3-axis acceleration detector (a) Remote control device circuitry on the substrate. (ロ) リモートコントロール装置を上下左右に向きを変えることで、発生した2軸又は3軸の変異を演算し、 (B) by changing the orientation of the remote control device to vertically and horizontally, it calculates the mutation of two or three axes generated,
方向信号として出力する。 And outputs as the direction signal. これまでのテンキー等を設置してあれば、キー操作との併用も可能である。 If installed so far such as a numeric keypad, a combination of a key operation is also possible. 以上のように装置する。 An apparatus as described above.

【0005】 [0005]

【発明の実施の形態】本発明に使用する2軸又は3軸加速度検出器は、各軸の加速度に対して出力が得られるので、この出力電圧を装置内に設置した差動演算増幅回路及び、A−D変換回路で必要とする方向信号に変換する。 2-axis or 3-axis acceleration detector used in the present invention DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF THE INVENTION, because the output is obtained for the acceleration of each axis, the differential operational amplifier circuit and have installed this output voltage in the apparatus , into a direction signal needed by the a-D converter circuit.

【0006】第1例 装置の形状は、これまでの方法と同様である。 [0006] The shape of the first example apparatus is similar to the previous methods. 装置内に設置した検出器は、装置を上下左右に方向を変えることにより、XYZの3方向の変異を検出するが、これを上下左右の角度に対応する信号に変換し、赤外線や超音波を方向信号で変調し送信する。 Installed detector in the device, by changing the direction of the device vertically and horizontally, but detects the three directions mutations XYZ, into a signal corresponding to this vertical and horizontal angles, infrared or ultrasound and transmitting modulated with direction signal. 受信装置側は、これまでの方法で受信した信号と同様の処理ができるが、本発明をプロジェクタ方式による表示装置または大型平面表示装置に利用すれば、体の動き(手の動き)が画面上で実感することができ、操作感覚が飛躍的に向上する。 Receiving apparatus side can until the same processing as the signal received by way of this, given the benefit of this invention to a display device or a large flat panel display device by the projector system, body movements (hand motion) is on the screen in it is possible to realize, operation feeling is dramatically improved. 実施に際しては赤外線や超音波等を利用したワイヤレス構造とした場合でも、送受信面の指向性は、機器に対面して使用する限り考慮する必要はない。 Even when the wireless structure using infrared rays or ultrasonic waves, etc. In the practice, the directivity of the transmitting and receiving surfaces, need not be considered unless the use facing the instrument.

【0007】第2例 本発明を多数の電子機器に利用するには、機器毎に格別の識別標識を定め、相互にこれを送受信し、リモートコントロール装置が向けられた機器を個別に操作することができる。 [0007] It To use the second example the present invention to a large number of electronic devices, which defines a special identification mark for each device, and receive it from each other, to operate the equipment directed remote control device individually can. 本例の実施の形態も第1例と同様である。 Embodiments of the present embodiment is similar to the first example.
