Description

  The present invention relates to an electronic device capable of remotely operating an application or the like included in a portable information terminal, and more particularly to output control of operation sound generated in response to an input operation from a user.
  In recent years, the use of multifunctional portable devices typified by smartphones has been increasing. When such a portable device is brought into the vehicle, the portable device may be connected to an electronic device (hereinafter referred to as an on-vehicle device) mounted on the vehicle and a function mounted on the portable device may be used in the on-vehicle device. It is possible. For example, when a portable device and an in-vehicle device are connected by a USB cable or the like, image data and audio data of an application displayed on the display of the portable device are transferred to the on-vehicle device, and the on-vehicle device receives the received image data. It is displayed on its own display, and the received audio data is output from its own speaker. When the user operates the touch panel provided on the display screen of the vehicle-mounted device, the coordinate data of the operation position is transmitted to the portable device, and for example, the application of the portable device can be activated or a call can be made via the portable device.
  In a general electronic device, in response to a user operation on an input key such as a touch panel, an operation sound or a confirmation sound is generated so that it can be confirmed that an input has been performed reliably. For example, in Patent Document 1, when a key confirmation sound is sounded according to an input key, if the input information is highly confidential, such as a password, a password, and a PIN code, the sound of the confirmation sound is stopped. ing.
JP 2001-177638 A
  As described above, the vehicle-mounted device has an operation mode in which the portable device can be remotely operated when a portable device such as a smartphone is connected. Moreover, each of the vehicle-mounted device and the portable device has a function to output an operation sound in response to an input operation from the user, and set whether to output the operation sound. Can do. Whether the operation sound data is transmitted from the portable device when the portable device is remotely operated from the vehicle-mounted device side depends on the setting on the portable device side. In other words, if the setting for outputting the operation sound is turned on in the portable device, when the portable device is remotely operated, the operation sound data corresponding to the operation sound is transferred to the on-vehicle device, and the on-vehicle device is connected to the speaker. The operation sound is output from. On the other hand, whether or not the operation sound is output in response to the input operation also depends on the user setting on the in-vehicle device side. The operation sound based on the operation sound data generated in step 1 is output from the speaker.
  FIG. 1 is a block diagram for explaining an operation sound output operation when a conventional portable device is connected to the vehicle-mounted device. When the portable device 20 and the vehicle-mounted device 10 are both turned on so that the operation sound is output, when the user performs a touch operation on an item displayed on the screen of the vehicle-mounted device 10, the input detection unit 12 detects the coordinates of the touch operation. The operation sound output unit 16 outputs operation sound data corresponding to the touch operation to the voice synthesis unit 18 based on the detected coordinates, and the voice synthesis unit 18 calls “pip” from the speaker 30 based on the received operation sound data. Outputs operation sound. As shown in FIG. 2, the time t1 from when the user's input operation is performed until the operation sound B1 is output from the speaker 30 is about 40 msec.
  On the other hand, in a state where remote operation is possible, the coordinate data which is the user's operation position detected by the input detection unit 12 is transmitted to the portable device 20 via the USB cable, and the portable device 20 is based on the received coordinate data. Recognizing that there has been an input operation, operation sound data corresponding to the input operation is transmitted to the vehicle-mounted device 10. Transmission of audio data from the portable device 20 to the vehicle-mounted device 10 is performed by packet communication. The voice synthesizing unit 18 on the vehicle-mounted device side accumulates the voice data received by packet communication in the buffer memory, and starts to output the voice data when the accumulated voice data exceeds a certain amount. For this reason, as shown in FIG. 2, the operation sound B <b> 2 of “beep” is output from the speaker 30 on the vehicle-mounted device side after the elapse of time t <b> 2 (for example, about 340 msec) from the time when the user performs the input operation. The operation sounds B1 and B2 may have different timbres (frequencies f1 and f2). If the operation sounds B1 and B2 beep twice even when the input operation is performed only once, The user is erroneously recognized as if a malfunction occurred in the vessel.
  As described above, when the portable device 20 is remotely operated from the vehicle-mounted device side, it is not known whether the operation sound is output from the portable device side. Therefore, the operation sound is set to be output by both the vehicle-mounted device and the portable device. If so, the operation sound will be output twice. Further, when it is desired to limit the sound from the portable device 20, it is possible to control the volume for all the sounds, but it is difficult to individually identify the operation sound and control it. Furthermore, even if the operation sound is set off in the vehicle-mounted device 10, if the sound data of the operation sound is transferred from the portable device 20, the operation sound is output in the vehicle-mounted device 10. In some cases, it may not be possible to follow the output of the operation sound.

That is, the operation sound output unit 332 outputs operation sound data corresponding to the input detection signal only when the setting signal represents an on setting for outputting the operation sound.
  Next, the transition of the electronic device 130 to the terminal mode will be described with reference to the flowchart of FIG. The terminal mode is an operation mode in which the electronic device 130 can remotely control the information terminal 110 and output audio data and video data transferred from the information terminal 110. This is referred to as a terminal mode for convenience. Yes. When the information terminal 110 is connected to the electronic device 130 via the USB cable (S101), the devices are mutually recognized by USB plug and play. Next, the electronic device 130 inquires of the information terminal 110 whether or not the information terminal supports the terminal mode (S102). When the electronic device 130 receives a reply from the information terminal 110 indicating that the terminal mode is supported (S103), the electronic device 130 starts operating in the terminal mode (S104). At the same time, the information terminal 110 can also operate in the terminal mode. When the USB connection is valid, the information terminal 110 can receive power supply from the electronic device 130 and can charge the battery.
  When the terminal mode is entered, the screen information displayed on the display of the information terminal 110 is transferred to the electronic device 130, and the screen information is displayed on the display 132 of the electronic device 130. The display 132 displays an application icon, menu, and the like of the information terminal 110 that can be remotely operated from the electronic device 130. When the display 132 supports touch panel input, a user input operation (coordinate information) is transmitted to the information terminal 110 via the touch panel, and processing according to the input operation is executed in the information terminal 110. The same applies to input operations from other input interfaces such as a mouse and a remote controller. Preferably, screen information transferred from the information terminal 110 to the electronic device 130 and commands and operation information (such as touch panel coordinate information) transmitted and received between the information terminal 110 and the electronic device 130 are RFB (Remote Frame buffer). Communication control is performed using a protocol, and voice data from the information terminal 110 to the electronic device 130 is communication controlled using RTP (Real-time Transport Protocol).
  Next, operation sound output control in the electronic system of this embodiment will be described. FIG. 9 shows a basic sequence when the operation sound setting on the information terminal side is remotely controlled from the electronic device side.
  When the electronic device 130 shifts to the terminal mode or operates in the terminal mode, the electronic device 130 sends a setting inquiry signal to the information terminal 110 as to whether or not the information terminal 110 supports the setting of the operation sound from the outside. Output. The setting inquiry signal is provided to the external setting enable notification unit 292 of the information terminal 110 via the connection unit 120. The external setting enable notification unit 292 provides the setting enable notification signal to the electronic device 130 in response to the setting inquiry signal when the operation sound can be set from the outside. On the other hand, when the operation sound cannot be set from the outside, the external setting enable notification unit 292 does not respond to the setting inquiry signal and does not provide any signal or cannot perform external setting. A setting enable notification signal is provided to the electronic device 130. When the electronic device 130 receives a setting enable notification signal indicating that setting from the outside is possible, the electronic device 130 is set to turn on an operation sound or to turn off an operation sound according to various situations described later. A setting control signal enabling setting is transmitted to the information terminal 110.
  When the operation sound setting unit 290 of the information terminal 110 receives the setting control signal from the electronic device, the operation sound setting unit 290 determines whether or not the setting control signal is an ON setting for outputting the operation sound (S201), and the stored setting information If is off, change it to on. Thereby, the information terminal 110 generates operation sound data in response to an input operation through the input unit 200 and a remote operation from the electronic device 130, and the operation sound data is transmitted to the electronic device 130 as sound data. (S202). On the other hand, in the case of the off setting that does not output the operation sound, the operation sound data is not generated in response to the input operation (S203).
  FIG. 10 is a flowchart showing the operation of the operation sound output control according to the first embodiment of the present invention. In the first embodiment, the operation sound on the information terminal side can be set from the outside. The operation sound setting unit 394 of the electronic device 130 checks whether the operation sound of the electronic device itself is set to ON or OFF by a user operation (S301). This confirmation is performed by reading setting information stored in a memory or the like. If the operation sound setting unit 394 is set to off (S302), the setting information output unit 396 sends a setting control signal to be turned off to the information terminal 110 so that the operation sound on the information terminal side is not output. (S303). When receiving the setting control signal, the operation sound setting unit 290 on the information terminal side compares it with the setting information that has been set, and if it does not match (S304), changes it from the on setting to the off setting (S305).
  In the first embodiment, when the electronic device 130 is set not to output an operation sound in response to an input operation, the information terminal side is also set not to output an operation sound so as to synchronize with this. This respects the intention of the user who desires not to output the operation sound, and prevents the user from feeling uncomfortable.
  On the other hand, if it is confirmed in step S302 that the setting is an on setting for outputting the operation sound of the electronic device itself, the flow proceeds to the flow shown in FIG. The operation sound setting unit 394 reads priority order information prepared in advance from a memory or the like (S401). The priority information determines which operation sound of the electronic device 130 or the information terminal 110 is to be output. Preferably, when the electronic device is an in-vehicle device, it is expected that an environment capable of outputting higher-quality sound than the information terminal is provided, so in the default state, the priority order information is electronic The device is set to be selected. However, this priority information may be changed by the user. The operation sound setting unit 394 determines whether or not priority is given to the electronic device (S402). If the electronic device is prioritized, setting control is performed so that the operation sound on the information terminal side is not output. A signal is output from the setting information output unit 396 (S403). The operation sound setting unit 290 on the information terminal side sets the operation sound to OFF by the setting control signal (S404).
  On the other hand, when the electronic device 130 is not prioritized, that is, when the information terminal 110 is prioritized (S402), a setting control signal is transmitted from the setting information output unit 396 so that the operation sound on the information terminal side is output. Output (S405). Thereby, the operation sound setting unit 290 on the information terminal side turns the operation sound on by the setting control signal. Further, the operation sound setting unit 394 on the electronic device side changes the setting to an off setting that does not output the operation sound of the electronic device itself (S406).
  In this way, the operation sound that responds to the user's input operation is either generated by the electronic device itself or generated by the information terminal, and is output once as in the past. It is prevented that two operation sounds are output in response to the input operation.
  Next, a second embodiment of the present invention will be described. FIG. 12 is a diagram illustrating an operation flow of output control of operation sound according to the second embodiment. In the second embodiment, the operation sound of the information terminal 110 cannot be set from the outside. Whether the setting permission determination unit 392 on the electronic device side represents that at least the setting permission notification signal transmitted from the information terminal 110 with respect to the setting inquiry signal illustrated in FIG. 9 cannot be set from the outside, If there is no response from the information terminal 110 to the setting inquiry signal, it is determined that the operation sound of the information terminal 110 cannot be set from the outside (S501). In response to the determination result, the operation sound setting unit 394 forcibly sets the operation sound on the electronic device side to the off setting (S502).
  As described above, according to the second embodiment, when setting of the operation sound on the information terminal side cannot be performed from the outside, the setting of the operation sound on the electronic device side is turned off. If the operation sound setting on the side is on, only one operation sound is output in response to one input operation, so that two operation sounds are output as in the conventional case. The bug is solved. Further, if the operation sound setting on the information terminal side is turned off, it is possible to follow the intention of the user who does not want to output the operation sound.
  Furthermore, in the above embodiment, an electronic device having a function of outputting an operation sound in response to an input operation is targeted. However, if the electronic device does not have a function of outputting an operation sound, a user instruction is given. The operation sound of the information terminal can be used or not used accordingly. In other words, if you want to use the operation sound of the information terminal, the setting control signal that is turned on is output, and if you do not want to use the operation sound, the setting control signal that is turned off is output. The output unit 396 can be controlled.
  Next, a third embodiment of the present invention will be described. In the first embodiment, the setting enable notification signal provided from the information terminal side notifies whether or not the operation sound on the information terminal side can be set from the outside. In the example, a setting information notification for notifying setting information of operation sound on the information terminal side is provided to the electronic device.
  FIG. 13 is a block diagram illustrating an operation sound setting function of the electronic device according to the third embodiment. As shown in the figure, in the third embodiment, in response to the setting inquiry signal, a setting information notification signal is acquired from the information terminal side, and the setting information of the operation sound on the information terminal side is obtained from the setting information notification signal. To know. The operation sound setting unit 402 controls existing setting information based on the detection result of the setting information detection unit 400.
  FIG. 14 is a diagram illustrating an operation flow of output control of operation sound according to the third embodiment. The electronic device 130 detects the setting information from the setting information notification signal provided from the information terminal 110 (S601). The setting information notification signal is transmitted by the information terminal in response to the inquiry signal from the electronic device side as in the sequence shown in FIG. The operation sound setting unit 394 on the electronic device side identifies whether or not the operation sound setting on the information terminal side is set to ON (S602). The setting is turned off (S603). On the other hand, when the setting of the operation sound on the information terminal side is the off setting, the operation sound setting unit 394 turns on the setting of the operation sound of the electronic device itself (S604). By doing so, it is possible to prevent the occurrence of two operation sounds in response to one input operation.
  In step S601, when there is no response signal from the information terminal side to the inquiry signal from the electronic device side, the operation sound setting unit 394 determines that the setting information notification cannot be detected ( In this case, the operation sound setting on the electronic device side is forcibly set to off (S604). If the information terminal side is set to ON, the generation of two operation sounds is suppressed, and if the information terminal side is set to OFF, no operation sound is generated.
  Next, a fourth embodiment of the present invention will be described. In the fourth embodiment, the timing of the operation sound on the electronic device side generated in response to the input operation is controlled. As shown in FIG. 1 and FIG. 2, when both the operation sound output of the information terminal and the electronic device are set to ON, if there is an input operation to the touch panel, the electronic device side will wait t1 hours after the input operation. The operation sound B1 is generated, and then the operation sound B2 is generated after elapse of t2 hours from the input operation. FIG. 15 is a timing chart showing an operation sound output control operation according to the fourth embodiment. In FIG. 15A, the operation sound B1 is output only for the period tB1 after t1 time, but in this embodiment, the output period is extended to tB1 + te, and at least the operation sound B1 is output. The period (tB1 + te) is overlapped with the period (tB2) in which the operation sound B2 is output. As a result, even if two operation sounds are output in response to one input operation, the operation sounds B1 and B2 overlap so that the user can hear the sound as if it were one operation sound. To.
  Further, as shown in FIG. 15B, the timing at which the operation sound B1 is output may be delayed. Originally, the operation sound B1 generated after the time t1 is delayed by td time so as to match the time t2 when the operation sound B2 is generated, and the generation of the operation sound B1 overlaps the generation of the operation sound B2. You may do it. Since the time t1 and the time t2 are known, the extended period te or the delayed period td can be appropriately determined in consideration of the output period tB2 of the operation sound B2. The operation sound B1 can be extended or delayed by the operation sound output unit 16 shown in FIG.
  Next, a sixth embodiment of the present invention will be described. FIG. 16 is a block diagram of an operation sound setting function according to the sixth embodiment. In the sixth embodiment, the operation sound data identification unit 500 identifies operation sound data from the sound data transmitted from the information terminal 110. On the information terminal side, when the operation sound data is transmitted in response to the input operation in the terminal mode, if the information that can be identified as the operation sound data is encoded, the operation sound data identification unit 500 Makes it possible to detect the presence or absence of operation sound data. The operation sound setting unit 502 controls the operation sound output unit 332 of the sound output unit 330 based on the identification result of the operation sound data identification unit 500.
  FIG. 17 is an operational flow of output control of operation sound according to the sixth embodiment. First, when a user input to the touch panel is performed, the input operation is detected (S701). Originally, the operation sound data in response to the input operation is provided and the operation sound is output, but in the sixth embodiment, the operation sound setting unit 502 receives the operation sound data from the operation sound output unit 332. The output is temporarily stopped (S702). Next, the operation sound data identification unit 500 monitors whether or not operation sound data exists on the sound data. If the setting is made to output an operation sound on the information terminal side, the operation sound data is transmitted as sound data within a certain time from the input operation. When the operation sound data can be identified within a certain period, the operation sound setting unit 502 that has received the identification result cancels the output of the operation sound data by the operation sound output unit 332 (S704). On the other hand, if the operation sound data cannot be identified within a certain period of time, the operation sound setting unit 502 sets the operation sound output unit 332 to temporarily stop because the operation sound is not output on the information terminal side. The operation sound data is output (S705).
  According to the sixth embodiment, by identifying or detecting the operation sound data from the sound data, it is possible to know the setting environment of the operation sound without detecting the setting information on the information terminal side, and accordingly the electronic device By controlling the output of the operation sound on the side, it is possible to prevent a plurality of operation sounds from being output in response to one input operation.
