Abstract

Smart mobile touch device has become part of our body literally. Now two out of three people always have their smart mobile devices within their reach and reach it more than 100 times a day, becoming typical “ Smartphone addiction”. Typical users reach smart device with their fingers every minute, always enjoy it and never be bored. So if it could catch and accumulate users’ sliding distance by their fingers, that’s must be so interesting, and this disclosure is coming. In the disclosure, it can catch users’ sliding distance on touch screen in real time, then accumulate these distances. The analysis to the final data files is very interesting and could generate potential market value, you can use it to analyze users’ behavior, such as which period of time is in most frequently use, or which App is more popular in the same time slot, and so on.

An Idea of Sliding Distance Accumulation on Touch Screen in Real Time

Smart mobile touch device has become part of our body literally. Now two out of three people always have their smart mobile devices within their reach and reach it more than 100 times a day, becoming typical "Smartphone addiction". Typical users reach smart device with their fingers every minute, always enjoy it and never be bored. So if it could catch and accumulate users' sliding distance by their fingers, that's must be so interesting, and this disclosure is coming. In the disclosure, it can catch users' sliding distance on touch screen in real time, then accumulate these distances. The analysis to the final data files is very interesting and could generate potential market value, you can use it to analyze users' behavior, such as which period of time is in most frequently use, or which App is more popular in the same time slot, and so on.

   The prerequisite for this disclosure is that, users can interact with their smart mobile devices via slidable touch screen. Touch screen could perceive users' sliding track in real time, and when to put down and up, then touch screen transfers the coordinate information to the processor unit, the processor unit could also recognise which APP the user is interacting with. Finally, the processed data is stored into data storage unit. So, the disclosure is divided into three parts: Data Catch unit, Data Analysis unit, and Data File unit, as shown in Fig.1.

For Data Catch unit, users usually interact with touch screen with some medium, usually the fingers, and slide for a moment. During this moment, touch screen can catch coordinate information in real time, and when to put down and up, that is touch screen could catch users' sliding track.

   Data Analysis unit is divided into computing moduleand buffer module. Computing module is responsiblefor computing the medium sliding distance, buffer module is temporary storage for results of computing module. When the medium is engaging with the touch screen, the coordinate information is transferred to the computing module

periodically, computing module calculates the distance between last coordinate point and current coordinate point , which is

, and accumulate the

result. It periodically do this until the medium leaves the touch screen. In this way it could get the length of sliding track.

   Buffer module is a temporary storage for computing results. After computing module gets the parameters of each slide operation, the parameters are outputted to buffer module. The parameters in this...
