Abstract

The use of motion sensor and voice activation circuits in a document reproduction machine to provide additional information to a user is disclosed. There is shown in Figure 1 a perspective front view of a document reproduction machine 2, which incorporates the motion sensing and voice activation circuits. Machine 2 uses an imaging system which includes a Raster Input Scanner (RIS) and a Raster Output Scanner (ROS). A printer of this general construction is disclosed in U.S. Patent 5,170,340, whose contents are hereby incorporated by reference. The basic components of machine 2 are xerographic module 4, which houses the imaging optical system, which can be conventional scan optics to project an image onto a photoreceptor drum or belt, or a Raster Input Scanner (RIS)

DOCUMENT REPRODUCTION MACHINE INCORPORATING A USER MOTION SENSOR(Cont'd)

The use of motion sensor and voice activation circuits in a document reproduction machine to provide additional information to a user is disclosed. There is shown in Figure 1 a perspective front view of a document reproduction machine 2, which incorporates the motion sensing and voice activation circuits. Machine 2 uses an imaging system which includes a Raster Input Scanner (RIS) and a Raster Output Scanner (ROS). A printer of this general construction is disclosed in U.S. Patent 5,170,340, whose contents are hereby incorporated by reference. The basic components of machine 2 are xerographic module 4, which houses the imaging optical system, which can be conventional scan optics to project an image onto a photoreceptor drum or belt, or a Raster Input Scanner (RIS) to capture the scanned image electronically and control the operation of a Raster Output Scanner (ROS) to form the movable image on the drum or belt. The various subsystems such as charge, development, transfer, fusing and cleaning are contained in module 4. Control module 6 contains the circuitry and electronics for controlling the operation of the xerographic module 4. Positioned on the top surface of the module is a control panel 8 and a display screen 10 through which a user can make the selection associated with a copying job and view commands and instructions displayed o...
