Abstract (en)

[origin: DE19654944A1] The system controller has sensors for determining a position of at least one trigger (3a), esp. a cursor on the computer's display screen or of a person in a room, in a 1,2 or 3-dimensional region. The trigger activates at least one function of the system (1a), esp. a visual display and/or a sound indication. The time spent by the trigger in the range (2) of the sensor and dynamic parameters such as its speed and acceleration are determined. The time spent and dynamic parameter information is used to influence the system.
