Abstract

Here is described a system and method for automatically computing display settings for a user. More particulalry the solution includes an automatic calculation of display settings could be made by the electronic device using light sensor that are able to get information about the ambient lighting conditions and adjust the display brightness accordingly, even if they can change rapidly. One example of application is a system for looking an electronic display through a computer software that is able to automatically recognise if the user is wearing glasses while it is using the device (for instance assuming it is a mobile device).

Method and Systems for Adjusting Display Brightness Level and Apply Display color Correction

For display on screens, it is a common technique to automatically adjust display settings according to different input explicitly given by a user or display settings are automatically calculated. An automatic calculation of display settings could be made by the electronic device using light sensor that are able to get information about the ambient lighting conditions and adjust the display brightness accordingly, even if they can change rapidly.

Here is described a method and a system for automatically adjust display brightness level and apply a display color correction filter according to not only the above recognition of ambient lighting conditions, but also to the possible user-related condition of wearing sunglasses, transitional glasses or colored glasses that in a standard situation creates issues for the user while he/she is looking an electronic display (usually a mobile one, but could be also a different display type, as a desktop monitor): in this case the display perception is not correct both for color-related issues (colored glasses) and brightness issues.

More particularly below is described a system for looking an electronic display through a computer software that is able to automatically recognize if the user is wearing glasses while it is using the device (for instance assuming it is a mobile device).

The system periodically checks through a camera, that usually is installed up on the display screen, if the user is wearing glasses and if the response is positive, through a color-picker mechanism it's able to take: 1. predominant color of the lens 2. flesh color

Then a software calculates the opacity of the lens. Usually the brightness of the display is calculated using light sensor the spot the

ambient lighting conditions: for instance, the brightness is increased when the sun light is higher...
