Abstract

Method for detecting the location of an object (108A) on a display device (102), comprising the steps of producing a plurality of patterns (122), each at a selected location on the display device (102), detecting at least one of the patterns (122), transmitting a signal indicative of the detected pattern, receiving the transmitted signal, and determining the location of the device (102), according to the received signal.
