  • Patent number: 9838573
    Abstract: Methods, systems, and devices for guiding a subject back within the recognizable visual range of a multimedia system are described. According to one of the described methods, when it is determined that the target has left the recognizable range of the multimedia system, sensor information is acquired from a portable electronic device (or controller) the user has been using to control the multimedia system, and the acquired sensor information is used to determine where the user is, relative to the recognizable range. In one example, the user is asked to make a gesture with the portable electronic device, and the sensor information concerning that gesture is used to determine the user's relative location. In another example, the sensor information recorded at the time the user left the recognizable range is used to determine the user's relative location.
