[0053] 图6A-6C示出了如何在根据第三实施例的显示装置中压下对象以及如何根据其移动对象。 [0053] Figures 6A-6C illustrate how the display apparatus according to a third embodiment of the pressure to move the object and how the object. 图7示出了根据本发明移动对象的流程图。 Figure 7 shows a flowchart of a moving object of the present invention.

[0054] 现在将參考图6和7描述根据本发明优选实施例的发明的一般工作方式。 [0054] Referring now to FIG. 6 and 7 describe the general work the invention according to a preferred embodiment of the invention.

[0055] 控制单元首先通过使将要呈现对象的显示元件位置中的部分柔性材料层34凸起,来使传感控制层32在显示器上提供对象38。 [0055] First, the control unit will be presented by the object display element positions projecting portion of the flexible material layer 34, to the control layer 32 so that the sensor 38 provides an object on the display. 此凸起部分是对象的第一位置,其表示为图6A所示的层34中的中间区域。 This is the first position the convex portion of the object, which represents the layer 34 as shown in FIG. 6A intermediate region. 同时控制単元使信息呈现层26显示对象38下面的信息40。 While controlling the information presentation layer of cells that the radiolabeling 26 38 The following information display object 40. 这里将对象以键的形式提供且所显示的信息是关于键的含义的信息,例如字母“k”。 Here the object is provided in the form of bonds and the displayed information is information about the meaning of keys, such as the letter "k". 传感控制层32的压电材料能够检测垂直力和切线力,其中切线カ使材料内的剪力升高。 Sensing control layer of piezoelectric material 32 can detect vertical force and tangential force, which makes the shear tangent grades within the material increases. 由此控制单元等候用户通过显示器输入。 Whereby the control unit waits for the user input through the display. 当用户进而用图6B中示出的他的手指46触摸键时,该触摸被检测,步骤56,该检测利用传感控制层32的压电材料进行,该压电材料将施加到柔性材料层34的カ转换成电信号。 When the user further illustrated with reference to FIG. 6B his finger touch keys 46, the touch is detected, step 56, the control layer is detected by the sensor 32 is a piezoelectric material, the piezoelectric material layer applied to the flexible material ka 34 into an electric signal. 这里,触摸由垂直分量和水平分量构成。 Here, the touch and the horizontal component is composed of a vertical component. 当对象被水平移动时,其至少ー个边缘(即,提供在对象周边区域中的边缘)受到层34中其周围未凸起材料的挤压。 When an object is moved horizontally, at least ー edges (ie, providing an edge in the peripheral area of the object) by the layer 34 around unbulged material extrusion. 周围未凸起材料的挤压是由手指46的触摸对对象引起的影响。 Unbulged material around extrusion 46 are influenced by finger touch on an object caused. 这在柔性材料内产生剪力S,其被传感控制层32感测。 This produces a shear S within the flexible material, which is sensed sensing control layer 32. 这里还检测垂直力F。 Here also detect vertical force F. 在此该カ提供在传感控制层32相应于受影响的显示元件(即周边区域中的显示元件)的区域中。 In this provides the 32 grades corresponding to the affected display element (i.e., peripheral region of the display device) area sensor control layer. 然后将两个カ转换成至少ー个传输到控制单元的电信号。 It is then converted into at least two grades ー th transmission electric signal to the control unit. 此后控制单元将垂直力F与阈值I!比较。 Thereafter the control unit F and the vertical force threshold I! Comparison. 如果垂直力高于阈值Tl,步骤50,将触摸认为是选择该键的功能,而不是移动该键,因此控制单元进行与该键相关联的动作,步骤52。 If the vertical force above a threshold Tl, step 50, the touch key that is to select the function, rather than moving the key, the control unit performs the operation associated with the key, step 52. 但是如果垂直力在阈值Tl之下,步骤50,则控制単元假定用户的输入是选择移动该键。 However, if a vertical force is below the threshold Tl, step 50, the control element assumes radiolabeling user input is to move the key selection. 根据信号的剪力部分,控制单元进而基于剪カS确定距离因数,步骤54。 According to shear portion of the signal, the control unit and then cut grades based on determining the distance factor S, step 54. 此后控制単元命令对象在由距离因数确定的方向上移动由距离因数确定的距离,步骤56。 Thereafter control radiolabeling meta-command objects in the distance factor determined by the moving direction is determined by the distance factor from step 56. 对象由此移动到由距离因数确定的第二位置。 Whereby the object is moved to the second position by the distance factor is determined. 控制单元通过使传感控制层32降低被推动的区域并提高对象被推动的方向上的其他区域来完成这个。 The control unit controls by sensing layer 32 is pushed lower region and enhance other areas of the object to be pushed in a direction to accomplish this. 在图6C中,这被示为中间区域右侧的相邻区域。 In FIG. 6C, which is shown as an adjacent area to the right of the middle region. 与此同时控制单元使信息呈现层示出新凸起区域下的相同信息40。 At the same time the control unit so that the information presentation layer shows the same information under the new raised area 40.

[0056] 以此方式可以通过考虑施加的水平力来移动诸如键的对象。 [0056] In this way you can move objects, such as keys by considering the level of force applied. 表I中还提供了所执行的不同方法步骤,表示如下。 Table I also provides different method steps are performed as follows.

[0059] 本发明具有许多优点。 [0059] The present invention has many advantages. 其可以利用对象的一个触摸来确定对象的移动。 It can take advantage of a touch object to determine a moving object. 通过此方式无需拖动和释放操作。 In this way without the drag and release operations. 此外本发明可以重新安排对象,如果用户具有关于触摸输入显示装置中对象外形的特殊需要,则这是有利的。 Further objects of the present invention can be rearranged, if a user has special needs regarding the touch input display device in the shape of an object, this is advantageous. 柔性材料可以提供能触知的対象。 Flexible material may provide tactile Dui like. 另ー优点在于可以通过施加到对象上的水平カ检测移动的大小和方向,简化了对用户移动它的意图的辨认。ー Another advantage is that by applying to the level of detection of moving objects on the grades of the magnitude and direction, simplifies the user move its intention to identify. 通过检测垂直力可以以简单的方式区别该选择是进行对象的移动还是激活对象。 In a simple manner by detecting the difference between the selection of object vertical force is moving or activating objects.

[0060] 控制单元不考虑垂直力也是可以的;在这种情况下可以比较剪力S和阈值并且如果剪力足够高就移动对象。 [0060] The control unit does not consider the vertical force is also possible; in this case can be compared with a threshold value S shear and shear sufficient if another job moving objects.

[0061] 在上述第一和第二实施例中,可以不考虑剪力。 [0061] In the first and second embodiments, it can not be considered Shear. 还可能可以不考虑垂直压力。 You may or may not consider the vertical pressure. 在这种情况下可以考虑是否在周边区域42中“触摸” 了对象,如图5所示。 In such a situation can be considered in the peripheral area 42 is "touch" object, as shown in FIG. 在“触摸”周边区域42的情况下,则表示要移动对象。 In the case of "touch" the surrounding area 42, it means you want to move objects. 然后通过所触摸位置和中心区域44之间的差别来确定移动的量和方向。 And then to determine the amount and direction of movement 44 by the difference between the central region and the touched location. 此原理还可以通过显示元件基本原理应用到显示元件上,即,通过比较被触摸元件和中心元件并且如果距离大于某个阈值则确定要进行移动。 This principle can also be applied to the display element, i.e., by comparing the touching element and the central element, and if the distance is greater than a certain threshold value is determined to be moving through the basic principle of the display element. 此外还可以在第三实施例中利用此来取代或补偿剪力的确定。 In addition, it can take advantage of this third embodiment, instead of or compensation shear OK. 通过考虑周边区域,如果此区域受到影响则移动对象,如果该区域未受影响则不移动对象,其简化了对触摸部件检测了对象的哪部分或已经影响了对象的哪部分的确定。 By considering the surrounding area, if this area is affected, the mobile object if the region is not unaffected moving objects, which simplifies the determination of the touch unit detects which part of the object or objects which have affected portion. 如果不能检测到力,通过考虑对象的“被触摸”显示元件和中心显示元件之间的差别,提供了简单且有效的确定是否移动对象的方法。 If the forces can not be detected, by taking into account the object's "touch" and the center of the display element to display the differences between the elements, it provides a simple and effective method for determining whether a moving object.

[0062] 所有实施例的其他可能的变形是还可以具有某种对象移动模式,其可以通过选择特定的键来进行选择。 [0062] all other possible modification of the embodiment can also have some objects moving mode, which can be used to select a particular key is selected. 在这种模式中所有对象的触摸都被确定为所述对象的移动。 In this mode, touch all the objects are determined to move the object.

[0063] 可以进行本发明的又ー变形,现在将參考图8和9描述该变形,图8和9示出了可以是键盘或键区的ー组对象。 [0063] The present invention can be deformed and ー, will now be described with reference to FIGS. 8 and 9 of the deformation, 8 and 9 shows a set of objects can be ー keyboard or keypad. 为了简化每个图,仅示出了四个对象。 To simplify each figure shows only four objects. 应当意识到少的可以示出三个或者可以示出更多对象。 It should be realized that few can show three or more objects can be shown. 在图中由此示出了第一对象38、第二对象60、第三对象62和第四对象64。 Thus in FIG. 38 shows the first object, the second object 60, the third 62 and fourth target objects 64. 在图8中用户将第一对象38对角地向上移动到左边并将第四对象64对角地向下移动到右边,其由箭头表示。 In Figure 8, the user first object 38 pairs of diagonally up to the left and the fourth objects 64 pairs of diagonally downwardly moved to the right, which is represented by an arrow. 仍然为了简化,在本例中移动的距离为仅移动ー个显示元件的距离。 In order to simplify still, moving distance in this case moving only a distance ー display element. 一旦这些移动被控制単元识别,就以相同方式继续并移动第二和第三对象60和62,分别对角地向上到右边和对角地向下到左边。 Once these movements are controlled radiolabeling cell identification, they continue in the same way and move the second and third objects 60 and 62, respectively, diagonally up to the right and diagonally down to the left. 由此未“触摸”的对象根据触摸对象的移动而被重新安排。 Thus not "touch" the object based on the movement of the touch object being rearranged. 通过这种方式,控制单元考虑两个被移动的对象并以类似方式移动了诸如键区的一组对象的其余对象。 In this way, the control unit considers two objects are moved and moved in a similar manner the remaining objects such as a keypad of a set of objects. 通过此方式例如用户可以通过对有限数量的对象的有限数量的操作以简单且快速的方式将键盘放大得更适合他的手,这是非常用户友好。 In this way the user can, for example by a limited number of objects of a limited number of operations in a simple and fast way to enlarge the keyboard more suited to his hand, which is very user-friendly. 应当意识到可以想到其他方式用来基于两个被移动对象来巧妙地移动对象。 It should be realized that you can think of any other way to be based on two moving objects to move subtly object.

[0064] 本发明其他可能的变形将示出了当其被移动时的对象。 [0064] Other possible variations of the invention will shows when it is moving objects. 控制单元由此基于对象的初始第一位置计算第二位置且然后沿确定方向显示对象,以便表示该移动。 The control unit thereby calculating the second position based on the initial target of the first position and then determine the direction along the display objects to represent the movement. 通过此方式可以使移动动画化以便示出用户怎样移动对象。 This approach enables mobile users to animate to illustrate how moving objects. 此外该动画化可以与移动的加速和减速组合,以便在开始移动时以增加的速度移动对象并在移动结束时以降低的速度移动对象。 In addition, the animation of the combination of acceleration and deceleration can be moved, so that at the beginning in order to increase the moving speed of the moving object and moving at the end to reduce the speed of moving objects. 此变形的优点在于以连续的用户友好方式进行对象的移动。 This modification has the advantage of moving to a user-friendly way of continuous objects.

[0065] 控制单元可以以任何合适的形式完成,包括硬件、软件、固件或其组合。 [0065] The control unit can be accomplished in any suitable form including hardware, software, firmware, or combinations thereof. 但是,优选地,其实现为存储在程序存储器中并在ー个或多个数据处理器和/或数字信号处理器上运行的计算机软件。 However, preferably, its implementation is stored in the program memory and ー or computer software running and / or digital signal processors or more data processors. 程序代码还可以提供在计算机程序产品上,其中的一种在图10中以CDROM盘66的形式示出。 Program code can also be provided on a computer program product, one of them in 10 to 66 of the form shown CDROM disk. 这仅仅是示例并且各种其他类型的计算机程序产品也是可行的,例如记忆棒。 This is just an example, and various other types of computer program products are also possible, such as a memory stick. 计算机程序产品还可以提供为例如可以从其他服务器下载的纯程序代码,可能通过互联网下载。 The computer program product may also be provided, for example, pure program code can be downloaded from other servers, possibly through the Internet to download.

[0066] 存在本发明可能的若干更多变形。 [0066] may exist several more variations of the invention. 本发明先前描述涉及ニ维显示器。 The present invention relates to the previously described Ni-dimensional displays. 应当意识到本发明不限于此种情形。 It should be appreciated that the invention is not limited to such cases. 本发明的教导同样可以应用在三维结构中,其中对象被三维地示出,可能使用全息图。 Teachings of the present invention can be also used in the three-dimensional structure, which shows a three-dimensional object is possible to use a hologram.
