  • Patent number: 10742902
    Abstract: A tracking system is provided. The tracking system comprises a trackable device which comprises a first illuminating module and the first illuminating module emits an infrared (IR) light and a tracking device which comprises an optical sensing module and a processor. The optical module is configured to sense an IR spectrum to capture a first image and sense a visible spectrum to capture a second image, and the IR light is in the IR spectrum. The processor is coupled to the optical sensing module. The processor is configured to search in the first image a first region corresponding to the IR light, locate in the second image a second region associated with the first region in the first image, and calculate a spatial status of the trackable device according to the second region in the second image.

  • Publication number: 20130342494
    Abstract: An auxiliary input device is provided for an electronic device including a capacitive touch sensor. The auxiliary input device includes at least one key, which includes an upper conductive layer, a lower conductive layer, and at least one supporting element. The lower surface of the lower conductive layer has a specific pattern. The supporting element is disposed between the two conductive layers such that there is a distance maintained between the two conductive layers. When the auxiliary input device is disposed on the capacitive touch sensor and the key is pressed by a conductive object, the upper conductive layer and the specific pattern of the lower conductive layer can be electrically conductive with each other so that the capacitive touch sensor can detect the contact of the specific pattern. When the capacitive touch sensor detects the contact of the specific pattern, the electronic device executes a corresponding function.
