  • Publication number: 20200413119
    Abstract: The present disclosure relates to a control device, a control method, an electronic device, and a program that enables an operation in a natural manner for switching between and remotely operating various control target devices. A plurality of control target devices emits infrared light codes each including a unique ID in a predetermined pattern. A user holds a controller and directs an infrared light receiving unit toward a control target device. At this time, a control state is established for the control target device specified by an infrared light code received by the controller. After the control state has been established, when a user rotates a main body of the controller, a control parameter in accordance with the amount of rotation is calculated, and a control command in accordance with the control parameter is transmitted to the control target device to control the control target device. The present disclosure can be applied to a remote controller.
