The module 26 calculates the relative position between the user and the handheld communication device 20 and each electronic device based on the audio signals detected by the handheld communication device 20 and the microphones of the respective electronic devices (step S304). The position analysis module 26 calculates the relative distance between the user and the handheld communication device 20 and each electronic device based on the intensity of the sound signal detected by the microphone 24 and the microphone of each electronic device. The relative position between the user and the handheld communication device 20 and each electronic device is calculated by the triangulation method.

Then, the work transfer module 28 can determine whether the relative position of the user is close to one of the electronic devices according to the relative position calculated by the position analysis module 26 (step S306). In an embodiment, the work transfer module 28 can set a threshold value for the relative distance between the handheld communication device 20 and the electronic device, and when the relative distance between the handheld communication device 20 and the electronic device is less than the threshold value, That is, it is determined that the relative position of the user is close to the electronic device.

Thereby, when the work transfer module 28 transfers work to the electronic device, the electronic device can immediately continue the work of the handheld communication device 20 without causing problems such as work delay, error, and the like. The following is a detailed description of an embodiment.

FIG. 5 is a flow chart of a multi-device transfer working method according to an embodiment of the invention. Referring to FIG. 5, the method of the present embodiment is applicable to the handheld communication device 20 of FIG. 2. The following is a detailed description of the detailed steps of the multi-device transfer working method of the present invention in conjunction with various components in the handheld communication device 20: First, the communication module 22 of the handheld communication device 20 detects at least one signal source (step S502), and the location analysis module 26 determines whether the signal source detected by the communication module 22 is at least one preset. The signal source is matched (step S504).

Wherein, when the location analysis module 26 determines that the communication module 22 detects If the source of the signal does not match the source of the preset signal, it is determined that the handheld communication device 20 has not approached or entered a specific location, and thus returns to step S502 to continue detecting the surrounding signal source by the communication module 22; When the group 26 determines that the signal source detected by the communication module 22 matches the preset signal source, the communication module 22 controls the communication module 22 to transmit the activation signal to each of the electronic devices through the wireless communication technology to initiate configuration in each location. A microphone on an electronic device. At the same time, the location analysis module 26 also controls the communication module 22 to transmit the synchronization signal to each electronic device through the wireless communication technology to synchronize the execution state of the handheld communication device 20 and the respective electronic devices with respect to the work (step S506). Wherein, when each electronic device receives the work execution state synchronized by the position analysis module 26, the data required to perform the work can be retrieved in advance according to the execution state.

Then, the communication module 22 of the handheld communication device 20 receives the sound signals detected by the microphones of the respective electronic devices, and the position analysis module 26 detects the signals detected by the handheld communication device 20 and the microphones of the respective electronic devices. The audio signal calculates the relative position between the user and the handheld communication device 20 and the respective electronic devices (step S508). The work transfer module 28 determines whether the relative position of the user is close to one of the electronic devices based on the relative position calculated by the position analysis module 26 (step S510).

When the work transfer module 28 determines that the relative position of the user is close to one of the electronic devices, the work performed by the handheld communication device 20 is transferred to the electronic device for execution (step S512). Wherein, since the electronic device has pre-synchronized the execution state of the work performed by the handheld communication device 20, and the data required to perform the work is extracted in advance. So when working When the transfer module 28 transfers work to it, the electronic device can immediately continue the execution of the job without delay.

The audio and video website URL and the viewing progress are synchronized to all the electronic devices in the home, so that the electronic devices can be pre-linked to the audio and video website to download the subsequent segments of the movie in advance and stored in the buffer of the device. When the handheld communication device 20 determines that the work is to be transferred to an electronic device, the electronic device can directly access the data in the buffer to continue playing the movie, thereby achieving seamless playback of the movie.

After the work transfer module 28 transfers the work to the electronic device, the flow of FIG. 5 returns to step S508, and the position analysis module 26 continues to calculate the user and the handheld communication according to the sound signals detected by the microphones of the respective electronic devices. The relative position between the device 20 and each of the electronic devices, and the work transfer module 28 continues to determine whether the relative position of the user calculated by the position analysis module 26 is close to other electronic devices. Wherein, when the work transfer module 28 determines that the relative position of the user is close to another electronic device, the work previously performed on the electronic device is transferred to another electronic device for execution again. Through the above-mentioned transfer work method, the effect of adaptive transfer work according to user activities can be achieved.

It should be noted that, in order to avoid misidentification of the user's location by the handheld communication device, the present invention also provides a voice recognition mechanism, and a voice recognition module is built in the handheld communication device to filter the handheld communication device. And the sound signal detected by the microphone of each electronic device, and only the sound signal of the user who is truly a handheld communication device is provided to the position analysis module to calculate the user and the handheld communication device and each electronic device relative position. In this way, the correctness of the work transfer can be improved.

In addition, the voice recognition module can be further configured to analyze the voice signal to obtain a corresponding voice command, so that the work transfer module can further control the electronic device that performs the work to perform the function corresponding to the voice command according to the voice command. For example, when the user walks to the front of the TV, the handheld communication device can determine the position of the user according to the sound emitted by the user, and transfer the original multimedia audio and video data to the television for playback. The control commands are spoken, thereby controlling the television to perform playback operations such as pause, fast turn, and rewind of the multimedia audio and video data played by the television.

The above embodiment is applicable to the case where the user first places the handheld communication device and then moves, and is also applicable to the case where the user carries the handheld communication device with him or her. However, in the case where the user carries the handheld communication device with him or her, the user may still be using the handheld communication device to perform work. In order to ensure that the handheld communication device does not misdirect the work to other electronic devices in this case, the work transfer module of the embodiment first determines whether the handheld communication device is in an active state before the transfer operation, to determine the user. Whether the work is being performed using the handheld communication device. For example, whether the handheld communication device is in an active state can be determined according to whether the screen of the handheld communication device is turned off. Wherein, if it is determined that the handheld communication device is not in the active state, the work transfer module can transfer the work to the electronic device; if it is determined that the handheld communication device is in the active state, the work transfer module does not transfer the work to the electronic device. With this, It can ensure that the handheld communication device does not cause malfunction.

In summary, the method for transferring between multiple devices of the present invention and the handheld communication device determine whether the user approaches or enters a specific location according to the signal source detected by the handheld communication device, and accordingly controls the electronic device in the location. The device activates the microphone. After the user enters the location, the microphone of the handheld communication device and the microphone of each electronic device can be combined to determine the position of the user in the location, thereby automatically transferring the work originally performed by the user on the handheld communication device to the most Executing on the electronic device close to the user, so as to facilitate the user to perform work.
