【発明の属する技術分野】 BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION
本発明はタッチ式入力装置に関するものである。 The present invention relates to touch input devices.
【0002】 [0002]
【従来の技術】 BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION
情報端末の簡単な入力機器としてタッチパネルを備えたものがあるが、多くの場合、タッチしやすいように画面上に表示されるボタンを大きくし、ボタンの位置も操作のしにくい周辺部を避けるように作られた専用のアプリケーションを作製している。 Are provided with a touch panel as a simple input device of the information terminal, in many cases, increasing the buttons displayed on the touch easy way screen, to avoid difficult periphery also the operating position of the button is to prepare a dedicated application was made to. しかしながら直接的な入力機器であるタッチパネルの利便性から、パソコン用のアプリケーションであっても特開平9−244809にみられるように、タッチパネルを使って操作できるようにマウス同等の機能を持たせたものが提案されてきている。 However the convenience of the touch panel is a direct input device, as is an application for PC seen in JP-A-9-244809, those which gave the mouse equivalent functions can be operated using a touch panel There has been proposed.
【0003】 [0003]
【発明が解決しようとする課題】 [Problems that the Invention is to Solve
マウスの場合はマウスを動かすことによりマウスの下部に設けられたボールが回転しその回転の量、方向をセンサーで検出することで画面上のカーソルを動かすが、ボールに付着するゴミなどの外的要因で同じようにマウスを動かしても毎回同じだけカーソルが動くとは限らない。 The amount of the ball is rotated the rotation is provided at the bottom of the mouse by moving the mouse in the case of mice, moving a cursor on the screen by detecting the direction sensor, external such as dust adhering to the ball not necessarily move the cursor by the same every time or moving your mouse in the same way as a factor. しかしながらカーソルを見ながらマウスを動かすといったマウスの特質から使用者は無意識のうちにカーソルが目的の位置にくるようマウスの動きを調整している。 However the user from the nature of mice such moving the mouse while watching the cursor cursor unconsciously is adjusted mouse movement to come to the desired location. この為、マウスはパソコンのアプリケーションに適した入力機器であるといえる。 For this reason, it can be said that the mouse is an input device that is suitable for PC application.
【0004】 [0004]
ところがマウスを動かすのは机上でカーソルは画面上に表示されて動く、使用者はカーソルの動きを見ているのでマウスは手感覚だけで操作しなければならない、またマウスカーソルを大きく動かしたい場合マウスを机上から浮かせ反対側に移動し再度マウスを目的の方向に動かすことを繰り返し行わなければならない、そのため初心者においては操作に慣れるよう訓練が必要であった。 However, it moves move the mouse cursor is displayed on the screen on the desk, when the mouse since the user is looking at the movement of the cursor must be operated only by hand feeling, also want to run a large mouse cursor mouse the must repeatedly perform moving the moving the mouse back to the opposite side floating from the desk in the desired direction, in the order beginners were required trained to get used to the operation.
【0005】 [0005]
一方タッチパネルは操作するのも、見るのも同じ画面上であり、初心者でも簡単に操作できるが、タッチパネルの原点からの絶対座標を検出する為、この検出精度が悪ければタッチした位置と検出された位置にズレが生じる、タッチパネル用にあらかじめ大きな表示のボタンを用意してあれば多少のズレは許容できるが、通常のパソコンのアプリケーションは小さなアイコンやボタンであることが多い。 Meanwhile touch panel also to operate, is also on the same screen to see, but easy to operate even for beginners, for detecting the absolute coordinates from the origin of the touch panel, the detection accuracy is detected as bad if the touch position position deviation occurs in, but is somewhat of a shift if there are available on the button of the pre-large display for the touch panel can be tolerated, it is often a typical PC application is a small icons and buttons. したがってそのようなアプリケーションで使用するには極めて高い位置検出精度が必要であった。 Therefore, to use in such applications were required very high position detection accuracy. 大きなサイズになればなるほどパネル全面のばらつきを抑えることは難しく製品のコストアップにつながる。 Suppressing the variation of the more whole panel if the large size increase in cost of hard products.
【0006】 [0006]
それに反してパソコンの画面は大型化されていく方向にある。 In the direction of the computer screen that will be large-sized contrary to it. 温度や湿度の環境の変化や経時変化、タッチを繰り返すことによる劣化など精度が悪化する要素が多く存在する。 Change and aging of the temperature and humidity of the environment, elements accuracy degradation such as deterioration due to repeated touch there are many.
【0007】 [0007]
また、この位置検出が特開平9−244809にみられるようにタッチパネルの原点からの絶対座標であるということは、アプリケーションや他の入力機器でカーソルが動かされた時には、記憶している座標と実際のカーソルの座標がずれてしまう為、カーソルを一旦原点に戻してから検出された座標へカーソルを動かさなければならず、マウスのように常に現在のカーソル位置を基準に動かすことは出来なかった。 Moreover, the fact that the position detection is absolute coordinates from the origin of the touch panel as seen in JP-A 9-244809, when the cursor is moved by the application or other input device is actually a memory to have coordinates order to deviate the coordinates of the cursor, must move the cursor to the detected coordinates from returning the cursor once to the origin, could not be moved to the always relative to the current cursor position as a mouse.
【0008】 [0008]
また、アプリケーションによっては画面のアイコン上にカーソルを移動することによりそのアイコンのコメントが表示され、使用者はそのコメントをみて実行するか否かを決められるがタッチパネルの場合、タッチするという動作によってタッチ位置にカーソル移動するだけでなく、その位置で「クリック」されてしまう為、選択の余地がなく実行されてしまう。 Other applications are displayed the icon comments by moving the cursor on the screen of the icons, if the user is determined whether to execute a look at the comments but the touch panel, the touch by operation of touching not only to move the cursor to the position, because that would be "click" at that position, it would be executed there is no choice.
【0009】 [0009]
このようにタッチパネル用に作られていないアプリケーションをタッチパネル方式で操作するには課題があり、本発明ではパソコンのアプリケーションに適したマウスの長所を生かし、タッチパネルに使われるような高精度のパネルを必要としなくても画面上のカーソルを指やペンなどで直接動かすような感覚で操作のできる画面直接操作型マウスを提供することにある。 Thus to operate an application that is not designed for touch by a touch panel method has problems, utilizing the advantages of mice that are suitable for computer applications in the present invention, require high precision panels such as those used in the touch panel It not as also is to provide a screen direct operation type mice that can manipulate the cursor on the screen in a sense, such as moving directly with a finger or a pen.
【0010】 [0010]
【課題を解決するための手段】 In order to solve the problems]
本発明ではパネルにタッチするという動作を、マウスを机上に置く動作であるとし、パネルから指を放すという動作を、マウスを机上から浮かせる動作と同じとする。 The operation of the present invention to touch the panel, a mouse and a is an operation to put on a desk, the operation of releasing the finger from the panel, the same as the operation of floating the mouse from the desk. タッチしながら動かすことによる検出値の変化量から移動量と向きを算出し、それと同じ向き、移動量でカーソルを動かすマウスボールの回転信号に変換する。 Calculates the moving amount and direction from the change amount of the detection value by moving while touching therewith the same direction, into a rotation signal of the mouse ball to move the cursor movement amount.
【0011】 [0011]
画面上に表示されているカーソル上をタッチしながら目的の場所まで動かすことでカーソルを直接動かしているような感覚で操作でき、カーソルの動きを見て、パネルのばらつきによるズレを補正しながら操作できることからパソコンのアプリケーションをマウスよりさらに直接的に操作できる。 While touching on the cursor, which is displayed on the screen can be operated with a sense as to move the cursor by moving to the desired location directly, look at the movement of the cursor, while correcting operation the deviation due to the variation of the panel It can be more direct operation from the mouse the PC application from it.
【0012】 [0012]
また、パネル全体をひとつのスイッチであるとみなすことで、カーソルを目的の位置に動かした後は、パネルのタッチしやすい場所をタッチすること、及びその仕方によりマウスの左や右ボタンが押されたのと同じ機能を割り付ける。 Also, it is considered the entire panel to be one of the switches, after moving the cursor to the desired location is touching the touch easy location of the panel, and left and right mouse button is pressed by the way It was of the assigned the same function.
【0013】 [0013]
【発明の実施の形態】 DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF THE INVENTION
図1に本発明の実施における構成図を示す。 It shows the structure in the practice of the present invention in FIG. 本発明のマウス10は検出部にタッチパネルに使用されるような透明なタッチ位置検出のできるパネル11を表示装置22に重ねて配置する。 Mouse 10 of the present invention is arranged to overlap the panel 11 which can transparent touch position detection, such as those used in the touch panel detector to the display device 22. パネル11にタッチされるとタッチされた位置の検出値が得られるが、タッチパネルとの違いはその検出値からタッチパネル原点からの絶対座標を算出しないことにある。 When touching the panel 11 detected value of the touch position is obtained, but the difference from the touch panel is not to calculate the absolute coordinates from the touch panel origin from the detected value.
【0014】 [0014]
タッチされた位置の検出値を基準に、タッチされたまま移動することによる検出値の変化から、移動検出部13にて移動量、移動方向を検出し、さらにそれを信号変換部14にてマウスを動かした時にマウスボールの回転を検出するセンサーが出力するパルス信号と同じ信号に変換する。 Based on the detection value of the touched position, the mouse from the change in the detection value by moving while being touched, the movement amount by the movement detection unit 13 detects a moving direction and it by the signal converting section 14 It is converted to the same signal as the pulse signal by the sensor output for detecting the rotation of a mouse ball when moving.
【0015】 [0015]
またタッチパターン検出部15にて、移動を伴わないタッチのみの操作においてパネルへの接触と開放の回数や接触時間を組み合わせたタッチの仕方を検出し、それをボタン押下信号変換部16でマウスの左ボタンや右ボタンを押した時の信号と同等の信号に変換する。 Also at the touch pattern detection unit 15 detects a touch manner that combines contact with open times and contact time to the panel in the operation of only the touch without moving, it mouse button depression signal conversion unit 16 into a signal equivalent to a signal when you press the left button or the right button.
【0016】 [0016]
この信号変換部14とボタン押下信号変換部16からの信号は標準的なマウスの信号と同じものであるので標準マウスデータ出力部17は特別なものでなく、従来技術のマウスと同じに容易に作製できる。 Signal from the signal conversion section 14 and the button depression signal converter 16 standard mouse data output unit 17 so that the same as the signal of the standard mouse, not special, the same easily and prior art mouse It can be produced.
【0017】 [0017]
マウス10はパーソナルコンピュータ18から見ると、通常のマウスであるため、何も特別なソフトウエアを作製する必要が無く、マウスカーソルを表示装置22に表示させることができる。 Mouse 10 when viewed from the personal computer 18, it is a normal mouse, nothing is not necessary to prepare a special software, it is possible to display the cursor on the display device 22.
【0018】 [0018]
このように、常にパネル面にタッチされているかを監視し、値が検出されない場合はパネルから指が離れたとし、カーソルはその場から動かない。 Thus, constantly monitors whether it is touching the panel surface, the value is separated finger from the panel when not detected, the cursor does not move from the spot. またタッチして手を放し別の場所をタッチした場合、それぞれタッチした時に検出される値に差があっても、その間タッチしたまま動かしていないのでカーソルは動かない、これはマウスを浮かせて動かしたのと同じである。 Also, when you touch a different location release the hand to touch, even if there is a difference between the value that is detected when you touch each, does not move the cursor because it does not move while touching the meantime, this is to move to float the mouse is the same as that.
つまりタッチした位置とカーソルの位置に関係は無く、タッチしながら動かした方向と量がカーソル移動の方向と量にだけ一致するようにしている。 That no relation to the position of the cursor touches, the direction and amount of moved while touching is that only match the direction and amount of the cursor movement.
【0019】 [0019]
図2に示すように使用者は画面上のカーソル位置を見て表示されたカーソル上をタッチする。 User as shown in FIG. 2 Touch the up cursor displayed watching the cursor position on the screen. タッチしたまま画面上を滑らせカーソルを移動させたい位置まで動かすとカーソルは動きにあわせて付いてくる、指の動きとカーソルの動きに多少のズレが生じてきても使用者はカーソルを見ているので無意識にカーソルが目的の位置にくるように指の動きを調整することができる。 When you move to the position you want to move the cursor slid the screen remains on the touch cursor come with according to the movement, even arisen is some deviation in the movement of the movement and the cursor of the finger the user is looking at the cursor unconsciously cursor because there can be adjusted the movement of the finger to come to the desired location. その為検出するパネルはあまり高精度である必要はない。 Panel to detect the order does not have to be a very high precision.
【0020】 [0020]
又、図3に示すように画面の隅に表示される小さなボタンなどはキャビネットの枠に邪魔され、指ではタッチしにくいが、そのような場所へカーソルを動かす際には、カーソルを目的の位置の近くまで動かした後、一旦指を離し、パネルのタッチしやすい位置で再びカーソルが目的の位置に達するまでタッチしながら指を動かせばよい。 Further, such small buttons displayed in the corner of the screen as shown in FIG. 3 is obstructed by the cabinet frame, but difficult to touch with a finger, in moving the cursor to such places, the desired position cursor after moving to the vicinity of, once you release the finger, again the cursor in touch easy position of the panel may be moving the finger while touching until it reaches the desired position.
【0021】 [0021]
次にマウスの左右のボタンを用いて行う「クリック」、「ダブルクリック」、「右クリック」、「ドラッグ」の機能について、本発明においてはタッチと開放と移動の組合せで各機能を割り付ける。 Then carried out using the left and right mouse button "click", "double click", "click", the function of the "drag" in the present invention assigns the functions in combination with the moving open and touch. パネルのどの場所であってもタッチされると何らかの検出値が得られ、パネルから開放すると検出値は得られなくなる。 When even anywhere panel is touched any detected value is obtained, the detection value and to open the panel will not be obtained. また検出値が変化してくればタッチしながら移動していることになる。 In addition so that the detected value is moving while touching if me to change.
【0022】 [0022]
図4は各機能割付けのフローチャートである。 Figure 4 is a flow chart of the function assignment. ST1においてタッチが検出されるとタッチフラグをセットし、ST2に進みタッチされたまま移動があるかを検出する。 When the touch is detected at ST1 sets the touch flag to detect whether there is movement remains touched proceeds to ST2. 移動がある場合、移動フラグをセットし、動きに合わせてカーソルを移動する。 If there moves, it sets a moving flag to move the cursor according to the movement. 移動が止まってもST3で移動フラグの有無を確認し、移動フラグがあるのでST1に戻る。 It stopped moving to confirm the presence or absence of movement flag in ST3, returns to the ST1 because there is a movement flag. 再び移動が検出されればカーソルも動き、移動をやめればカーソルも止まる。 If movement is detected again cursors move the cursor also stops if Yamere movement. パネルから指を放すと、ST1でタッチが検出されずST7に進む、右ボタンフラグは無いので、ST8に進み移動フラグがあるので移動フラグとタッチフラグをリセットし、ST1に戻る。 Releasing the finger from the panel, the process proceeds to ST7 touch is not detected at ST1, since the right button flag not, reset the moving flag and touch flag there is a movement flag proceeds to ST8, the flow returns to ST1. タッチが検出されず再びST7、ST8と進み、今度は移動フラグとタッチフラグがリセットされているのでST10に進み、タッチカウンタの数値が0である為、ST1に戻る。 Touch advances again ST7, ST8 not detected, now proceeds to ST10 because the mobile flag and touch the flag has been reset, for numerical value of the touch counter is 0, it returns to ST1.
【0023】 [0023]
このようにタッチして少しでも動かした場合、カーソルが動くだけでありマウスの左右ボタンの機能は働かない。 If you move this way even a little touch, the function of the left and right mouse button is only moving the cursor does not work. 「ポイント」と呼ばれるマウスカーソルをアイコンやボタン上に重ねるだけの操作も実現できる。 Operation of only superimposing the mouse cursor called "points" on the icons and buttons can also be realized.
【0024】 [0024]
次にタッチしたまま動かさない場合、ST2で移動が検出されずST3に進む、移動フラグも無く、右ボタンフラグも無いのでST3からST4、ST5と進みタッチカウンタも「0」であるのでST6に進む、タッチしたまま動かさなければやがて時間がT1に達し、右ボタンを時間T3の間ONし、右ボタンフラグをセットしてST1に戻る。 Then if you do not move while touching, and the process proceeds to ST3 not detected movement in ST2, move flag is also not, because the right button flag is also not ST3 from ST4, ST5 and proceed touch counter also proceed to ST6 because it is "0" , before long time to be moved while touching reaches the T1, and oN between the right button time T3, returns to the ST1 to set the right button flag. このままタッチし続けていてもST4において右ボタンフラグが検出されて再び右ボタンが押されることはない。 Never right button again is pressed in this state is detected right button flag even if continuously touched in ST4. 右ボタンを押した信号を出力した後もタッチしたまま動かせばカーソルは動きに合わせ移動する。 By moving while touching even after the output of the signal you press the right button cursor is moved according to the movement. パネルから指を放せばST1からST7に進み、右ボタンフラグをリセットしST1に戻る。 Release the finger from the panel proceeds from ST1 to ST7, return the right button flag to reset ST1.
【0025】 [0025]
このように「右クリック」はパネルの任意の場所をあらかじめ定めた時間T1以上動かさずにタッチし続けることで実現する。 In this way "right-click" is achieved by continuing to touch without moving a predetermined time T1 or more anywhere in the panel.
【0026】 [0026]
次にタッチしたまま動かさずにT1の時間経過前にパネルから指を放した場合はST1からST7、ST8、ST9へと進み、タッチフラグがあるのでタッチフラグをリセットした後タッチカウンタに1を加え、ST10に進むタッチカウンタが1になっているのでST11に進み経過時間を計測する、まだ時間がT2に達していない為、左ボタンをONにし、ST1に戻る、引き続きタッチされなければ同じ経路でST9に進むがタッチフラグはリセットされているのでタッチカウンタは1のままST10、ST11と進む。 Then when you release the finger from the time elapsed before the panel T1 without moving while touching proceeds from ST1 to ST7, ST8, ST9, a touch counter after resetting the touch flag added because there is a touch flag , the touch counter to proceed to ST10 to measure the elapsed time proceed to the ST11 because it became a 1, because it does not reach the still time T2, the oN the left button, returns to the ST1, by the same route to be continue to touch Although advances to ST9 proceeds remain ST10, ST11 of the touch counter is 1 because the touch flag is reset. やがて時間がT2に達したら左ボタンをOFFしタッチカウンタを0に戻す。 Before long time returns to 0 the touch counter is OFF the left button when reached T2.
【0027】 [0027]
つまり、「クリック」はタッチして動かさず「右クリック」になる時間T1が経過する前に開放すると開放してから時間T2だけ左ボタンを押した信号を出力することで実現する。 In other words, to achieve the "click" is able to output a signal pressing the open to the left button only time T2 from the open before the time T1 to be not moved in touch "right-click" has elapsed. 又、「ダブルクリック」も「クリック」が完了後、再度クリック動作を繰り返すことで実現する。 In addition, "double-click" is also "click" is after completion, be realized by repeating the click action again.
【0028】 [0028]
上記、時間T2だけ左ボタンを押した信号を出力している間にST1にて再度タッチが検出された場合は再びタッチフラグがセットされ、ST2、ST3、ST4、ST5と進み、ここでタッチカウンタは1になっているので右ボタンがONすることはなく、左ボタンは押されたままになっている。 Above, are set touch flag again if again touch at ST1 is detected during the output of the signal down the left button for the time T2, ST2, ST3, ST4, ST5 and the process proceeds, the touch counter where is not that right button is turned oN so that to 1, is left to the left button is pressed. ここでタッチされたまま移動があると、ST2で移動フラグをセットしカーソルを動かす。 Now there is a movement remains touched, move the cursor to set the movement flag in ST2. パネルから指を放せば、ST7、ST8と進み移動フラグがあるので左ボタンはOFFされる。 Release the finger from the panel, the left button is OFF because of the movement flag proceeds ST7, ST8.
【0029】 [0029]
このようにタッチして動かさずに開放し、あらかじめ定めた時間T2内に再度タッチしたまま動かした場合、パネルから指を放すまで、左ボタンを押された状態での移動、つまり「ドラッグ」が実現する。 In this way open to not moved in touch, if you move while again touch to a predetermined time in the T2, from the panel until you release your finger, the movement in the state pressed the left button, or "drag" is to achieve.
【0030】 [0030]
上記は時間T2だけ左ボタンを押した信号が出力されている間にST1にて再度タッチが検出され、タッチしたまま動かした場合を説明したが、2回目のタッチでタッチしたまま動かされずに開放された場合はST1からST8、ST9へと進み、タッチフラグがあるのでタッチカウンタに1を加え、ST10に進む。 The above is detected again touch at ST1 while it is being output a signal down the left button only time T2, it has been described a case in which move while touching, open without being moved while touching in the second touch it is If the proceeds to ST1 from ST8, ST9, a touch counter addition there is a touch flag, the process proceeds to ST10. タッチカウンタが2になっているので左ボタンをOFFした後、時間T4だけその状態を保持した後、再度左ボタンを時間T5だけONする。 After OFF the left button since the touch counter is set to 2, after holding that condition for a time T4, is ON only time T5 the left button again.
【0031】 [0031]
つまり、「クリック」が完了していない状態で再度タッチされ放されても、左ボタンを押した信号の出力は間を空けて連続2回出力され、「ダブルクリック」が実現できる。 In other words, even if released is again touch in a state in which the "click" has not been completed, the output of the signal you press the left button is output two consecutive spaced between, "double-click" can be realized.
【0032】 [0032]
このように標準マウスに備わるすべての機能をタッチ操作だけで実現できる。 Thus it can be realized only by touching all functions provided in the standard mouse. タッチする位置を選ばない為、図5に示すようにカーソルを目的のアイコンやボタンに移動した後は、使用者は自分の操作し易い場所で操作をすればよい。 Since agnostic position touching, after moving the cursor to the desired icon or button, as shown in FIG. 5, the user may be operating in their operation and easy to place. また従来のタッチパネルのように良く使うボタンの位置が集中的にタッチされることもない。 Nor the position of the button frequently used as a conventional touch panel is intensively touch.
【0033】 [0033]
本説明では標準的なマウスの機能だけに特定して説明したが、「スクロール」などの機能を加えてもよいし、割り付ける機能を入れ替えてもよい。 In the present description has been described with specific only to standard mouse functions, may be added to the functions such as "scroll", it may be interchanged function assigned. また、操作は指に限らず、ペンなどを用いてもよい。 In addition, the operation is not limited to the finger, or the like may be used pen.
【0034】 [0034]
【発明の効果】 【Effect of the invention】
本発明によれば使用者は画面上にあるカーソルにタッチしながら目的の位置まで移動させることができ、マウスの操作に慣れていない人でも簡単に操作ができるようになる。 User, according to the present invention while touching the cursor located on the screen can be moved to the desired position, so that it is also easily operated by those unfamiliar with the mouse of the operation. また大型画面であっても高精度のパネルである必要が無く、性能の持続性の高い入力装置を安価に実現できる。 Further, even large screen need not be a panel of high accuracy can be realized at low cost with high input device persistent performance.
