Method and System for Automatically Generating Digital Records of Game Moves
using a Portable sensor Pen
Disclosed is a method and system for automatically generating digital records of game
moves using a portable sensor pen. The method and system facilitates a user of the
game to simultaneously create digital as well as physical (hand written) records of the
game moves by using the portable sensor pen. The moves can be recorded from one
or more games such as, for example, chess, go, Shogi, Bridge, Draughts, Xianqi,
In accordance with the method and system, the user is enabled to record each game
move by using the sensor enabled pen. The method and system utilizes a language
model that is defined and constrained over grammar and alphabets of a particular game
notation language. Subsequently, the sensor of the pen is utilized for tracking motions
generated by the user while writing game moves on a paper. Thereafter, a classifier of
the language model maps the recorded motions to characters and words of the game
notation language and stores the game moves in the game specific language.
In an embodiment, the method and system provides the sensor enabled pen with a
biometric sensing unit, which facilitates the verification of authenticity and identity of the
user. Additionally, a hand writing sensor provided on the portable pen matches the
handwriting of every submission of the user on the paper with previously verified
samples, by utilizing standard pattern match...
