  • Publication number: 20200218441
    Abstract: A selection device (100) displays objects that are selection subjects on a touch screen, and selects an object according to an operation performed on the touch screen. In this selection device (100), a detector (130) detects a touch operation performed on the touch screen. A divider (150) divides the detection area of the touch screen into a plurality of sections on the basis of the positions of the objects that are currently displayed and the detection position where the detector (130) detected the touch operation. When an operation of selecting one of the sections divided by the divider (150) is detected, a confirmer (160) confirms the selection of the object that corresponds to the selected section.
