B,2C,2Dの映像である。 B, 2C, an image of the 2D. ガンをビデオ画面1の真正面に画面に対して直角に向けた時には、発光体の映像2aないし2dはカメラの撮影枠の中央に互いに対称な位置に映し出されるが、例えばガン(CCDカメラ)を次第に右方向へ平行移動させると、発光体の映像2aないし2dはカメラの撮影枠内で次第に左側へ移動する。 When directed at right angles to the screen gun in front of the video screen 1, 2d to no image 2a of the emitter but is displayed on the mutually symmetrical positions to the center of the shooting frame of the camera, for example, gun (CCD camera) gradually When moved in parallel to the right, to no image 2a of the emitter 2d is gradually moved to the left in the captured frame of the camera.
また、ガンを左方向へ平行移動させると、発光体の映像2aないし2dはカメラの撮影枠内で次第に右側へ移動する。 Further, when the parallel moving the gun to the left, to no image 2a of the emitter 2d is gradually moved to the right in the shooting frame of the camera. 同様に、ガンを上方向へ平行移動させると、発光体の映像2aないし2dはカメラの撮影枠内で次第に下側へ移動し、ガンを下方向へ平行移動させると、発光体の映像2aないし2dは次第に上側へ移動する。 Similarly, when moved in parallel cancer upward, to no image 2a of the light emitting elements 2d move to progressively lower in the captured frame of the camera, when moved in parallel cancer downward, to no image 2a luminous body 2d will gradually move to the upper side. 従って、カメラの撮影枠内における発光体の映像2aないし2dの上下左右への変移量を読み取ることにより、ガンの上下左右への移動量を検出することができる。 Therefore, to no image 2a luminous body of the camera photographing frame in by reading the displacement amount in the vertical left and right 2d, it is possible to detect the amount of movement in vertical and horizontal cancer.

【0013】また、ガンをビデオ画面1から次第に遠ざけると、図2中の左下に示すように、発光体の映像2a Further, when moved away progressively cancer from video screen 1, as shown in the lower left in FIG. 2, the light emitter of the video 2a
ないし2dは撮影枠の中心へ向けて寄り集まる。 Through 2d is gather together toward the center of the shooting frame.

【0014】図3はガンの向きの変化に伴う撮影画像の変化を示しており、ガンをビデオ画面1の真正面に置いた状態でガンの先端が次第に右方向へ向くよう傾けると、発光体の映像2aないし2dはカメラの撮影枠内で次第に左側へ移動すると同時に、右側の映像2bと2d [0014] Figure 3 shows the change of the captured image due to the change in orientation of the gun, the leading end of the gun in a state of placing the gun in front of the video screen 1 is inclined to face the increasingly right, light emitter at the same time to no image 2a 2d is gradually moved to the left in the captured frame of the camera, the right image 2b and 2d
の間隔が次第に狭くなる。 Gradually narrow the gap. また、ガンの先端が次第に左方向へ向くよう傾けると、発光体の映像2aないし2d Also, when tilted so that the tip of the gun faces progressively to the left, to no image 2a of the light emitting elements 2d
はカメラの撮影枠内で次第に右側へ移動すると同時に、 At the same time it is gradually moved to the right in the shooting frame of the camera,
左側の映像2aと2cの間隔が次第に狭くなる。 Interval of the left side of the image 2a and 2c is gradually narrowed. 同様に、ガンを上向きに傾けると、発光体の映像2aないし2dはカメラの撮影枠内で次第に下側へ移動すると同時に、上側の映像2aと2bの間隔が次第に狭くなり、ガンを下向きに傾けると、発光体の映像2aないし2dはカメラの撮影枠内で次第に上側へ移動すると同時に、下側の映像2cと2dの間隔が次第に狭くなる。 Similarly, Tilting the gun upward, 2d to no image 2a of the light emitters at the same time moves to progressively lower in the captured frame of the camera, the interval of the upper image 2a and 2b becomes gradually narrow, tilting the gun downward When, to no image 2a of the light emitting elements 2d gradually and at the same time moves upward, gradually narrows the interval of the lower image 2c and 2d in the captured frame of the camera.

【0015】図4はガンの回転に伴う撮影画像の変化を示しており、ガンをビデオ画面1の真正面に画面に対して直角に向けたままの状態で、ガンをその軸中心に次第に時計回り方向に回転させると、発光体の映像2aないし2dはカメラの撮影枠内で撮影枠に対して反時計回り方向に回転し、逆に、ガンをその軸中心に次第に反時計回り方向に回転させると、発光体の映像2aないし2d [0015] Figure 4 shows the change of the captured image caused by the rotation of the gun, while still directed at right angles to the screen gun in front of the video screen 1, gradually clockwise cancer at its axial center is rotated in the direction, 2d to no image 2a luminous body is rotated in the counterclockwise direction with respect to the photographed frame in the captured frame of the camera, on the contrary, to rotate the gun gradually in a counterclockwise direction to the axial center and, there is no image 2a of the light-emitting body to 2d
はカメラの撮影枠内で撮影枠に対して時計回り方向に回転する。 Rotates in the clockwise direction with respect to the photographed frame in the captured frame of the camera.

【0016】このように、ビデオ画面1に対するガン(CCDカメラ3)の相対位置、傾き、回転に対応して、カメラの撮影枠内における発光体の映像2aないし2dの位置が変化するので、これをビデオRAM5に記録して読み取り、所定の演算を行なうことにより、ビデオ画面1に対するガンの相対位置、傾き、回転量等を検出し得るものである。 [0016] Thus, the relative position of the gun (CCD camera 3) for the video screen 1, the inclination, in response to the rotation, the position of from picture 2a luminous body of the camera photographing frame in 2d is changed, this the reading was recorded on the video RAM 5, by performing a predetermined operation, the relative position of the gun for the video screen 1, the inclination, it is capable of detecting the amount of rotation or the like.
