Abstract

Today, we use everytime phones and in many cases we are in a noisy environment (open space, train station, car, supermarkets). In this context of changing environments, it is difficult to hear clearly the interlocutor while adapting the level of needed sound. On classical devices, you have to use buttons to increase or decrease this level on your phone. The purpose of this invention is to integrate a dynamic regulation based on a sensor. This device will capture the level of noise and then adapt and regulate the level of sound of the speaker and the microphone. This dynamic regulation of the phone speaker and microphone system solves this issue.

Dynamic regulation of the level of the phone speaker and microphone

The purpose of this invention is to integrate a dynamic regulation based on a sensor. This device will capture the level of noise and then adapt and regulate the level of sound of the speaker and the microphone.

This dynamic regulation of the phone speaker and microphone system solves this issue.

The solution to fix this main issue is to put a dedicated sensor in the body of the phone to check the noise and adapt dynamically the level of the speaker and the microphone.

This solution allows you to hear clearly your interlocutor in any environment.

Here is the process:

1 - A phone call is received, the phone is ringing.
2 - The phone call is accepted.
3 - The sensor embedded in the phone will capture the level of noise in the environment.
4 - The phone adapts the level of the speaker based on the value returned by the sensor.
5 - The phone adapts the level of the microphone based on the value returned by the sensor.

Here is the physical implementation:
