  • Patent number: 9645666
    Abstract: A display device equipped with a touch panel includes a touch panel unit, a touch panel control unit, a pen incline information acquiring unit, a coordinate correction unit, and a display panel unit. The touch panel control unit detects a touch upon a touch panel surface, and acquires touch point coordinate information which is information for specifying a location which is touched on the touch panel surface. The pen incline information acquiring unit acquires pen or input member incline information, which is information relating to an angle which is formed by the touch pen and the touch panel surface when the touch pen and the touch panel face are in contact. The coordinate correction unit corrects, on the basis of the pen incline information, the touch point coordinate information when the line is drawn with the touch pen or input member upon the touch panel screen.

  • Publication number: 20150145789
    Abstract: The present invention aims at reducing noise caused by driving of the display panel while reducing a drop in the output rate of coordinates representing an object to be drawn. A coordinate output device receives a horizontal synchronization signal of a display panel from a display panel control unit and starts to detect touch location on the touch panel after a prescribed length of time has passed from the initial rise of the horizontal synchronization signal. The coordinate output device detects coordinates representing touch location in accordance with a signal outputted from the touch panel and performs a generation process to generate coordinates based on three consecutive detected coordinates. The coordinate output device outputs coordinate data having the detected coordinates and the generated coordinates to a control unit as coordinates from a period when three of the generated coordinates were detected.

  • Publication number: 20120169643
    Abstract: A gesture determination device (1) includes the following; a coordinate data acquisition unit (10) that acquires coordinate data for each predetermined time period generated by an operation of a user; a first angle-category generation unit (11) that generates a first angle-category at first time intervals based on the coordinate data; a second angle-category generation unit (12) that generates a second angle-category at second time intervals based on the coordinate data, in which the second time interval is longer than the first time interval; and a gesture determination unit (13) that determines a gesture based on the first angle-category and/or the second angle-category. When a time interval defined to generate the second angle-category includes an overlapping time period with a time interval defined to generate the first angle-category, the gesture is determined by giving priority to the second angle-category over the first angle-category.

  • Patent number: 8094003
    Abstract: An on-vehicle display control unit includes a CPU to which vehicle data of various kinds are inputted and a graphic LSI arranged to generate display data to be outputted to a display. The graphic LSI is arranged to generate predetermined display data from image data generated by a meter ECU. However, if there is a problem in a state of the meter ECU or an input status of 3D moving picture data, the graphic LSI receives a fail safe control from the CPU (4), thereby to generate fail safe display data corresponding to the predetermined display data. This realizes an on-vehicle display system capable of stably displaying important vehicle information.
