Title (EN) INPUT METHOD AND APPARATUS
(FR) PROCÉDÉ ET APPAREIL D'ENTRÉE
Abstract:
(EN) A controller for determining a displacement of a control stick and an applied pressure on the control stick comprises at least a first control stick, one or more sensors configured to sense a pressure applied to at least one control stick and to generate corresponding pressure information, first circuitry configured to receive displacement information associated with a physical displacement of the control stick in a direction relative to a reference position when a pressure is applied to the control stick, second circuitry configured to receive from one or more of the sensors pressure information associated with the pressure applied to the control stick, and third circuitry configured to determine the displacement of the control stick and the applied pressure on the control stick based on the received displacement information and the pressure information; wherein at least a first sensor is configured to sense the pressure applied when the physical displacement of the control stick reaches a displacement limit.
(FR) L’invention concerne un dispositif de commande destiné à déterminer un déplacement d'une manette de commande et une pression appliquée sur la manette de commande, comprenant au moins une première manette de commande, un ou plusieurs capteurs conçus pour détecter une pression appliquée à au moins une manette de commande et pour générer des informations de pression correspondantes, des premiers circuits conçus pour recevoir des informations de déplacement associées à un déplacement physique de la manette de commande dans une direction liée à une position de référence lorsqu'une pression est appliquée à la manette de commande, des deuxièmes circuits conçus pour recevoir dudit capteur des informations de pression associées à la pression appliquée à la manette de commande, et des troisièmes circuits conçus pour déterminer le déplacement de la manette de commande et la pression appliquée sur la manette de commande sur la base des informations de déplacement reçues et des informations de pression ; au moins un premier capteur étant conçu pour détecter la pression appliquée lorsque le déplacement physique de la manette de commande atteint une limite de déplacement.
