  • Patent number: 11150758
    Abstract: A method includes obtaining sensor coordinates and pressure values corresponding to the sensor coordinates; mapping, using a first mapping method, a first set of the sensor coordinates to first display screen coordinates; determining that a first one of the pressure values is greater than or equal to a threshold pressure value; determining that a second one of the pressure values is less than the threshold pressure value, after determining that the first one of the pressure values is greater than or equal to the threshold pressure value; in response to the determining that the second one of the pressure values is less than the threshold pressure value, mapping, using a second mapping method, a second set of the sensor coordinates to second display screen coordinates; and outputting the first display screen coordinates and the second display screen coordinates. Accordingly, an operator can easily switch the mapping to the second method.

  • Patent number: 10976867
    Abstract: A method of generating pen data includes periodically sampling an interaction of a pen on a sensor surface in which a detected pen tip pressure is greater than zero. Pen data including detected pen positions are reported. In response to a pen up event in which the detected pen tip pressure is zero, an intended end-of-stroke position of the pen tip is predicted based on a detected pen tip position occurring at least two, three, or more samples earlier than the sample at the pen up event. The predicted intended end-of-stroke position is reported in (1) the pen data for the sample at the pen up event, in place of the actual pen tip position detected at the pen up event, or in (2) the pen data for one or more samples preceding the pen up event, in place of the actual pen tip position in the one or more samples preceding the pen up event.
