    Description

    CROSS-REFERENCE TO RELATED APPLICATION(S)



    [0001] This application claims the benefit of a Korean patent application filed on September 1, 2014 in the Korean Intellectual Property Office and assigned Serial number 10-2014-0115474.

    TECHNICAL FIELD



    [0002] The present disclosure relates to a mobile device and a method of projecting an image by using the mobile device. More particularly, the present disclosure relates to a mobile device capable of projecting an image of an area desired to be viewed by a user from among the entire image expressing content being replayed or accessed on the mobile device, and capable of intuitively changing and manipulating a projected image.

    BACKGROUND



    [0003] As the functionality of mobile devices has become more diversified, terminals having complex functions, such as taking a picture, recording a video, playing music or a video file, playing games, receiving broadcast programs, and the like, have been implemented. An image projection function, which until recently was possible using a large-size projector, may now also be performed using a mobile device.

    [0004] When projecting an image by using a mobile device, a user may project an image onto a desired point without being restricted by space. However, an interface used to control the projected image is limited when providing the image projection function by using the mobile device.

    [0005] US 20120165077 describes the operation of a mobile device incorporating an attitude detector, a projector and a display unit. The display unit displays an image that corresponds to an image projected by the projector (such as a portion of a world map). By changing the attitude of the mobile device, a corresponding change is made to the image projected by the projector and this in turn causes a change in the displayed image on the display unit.

    [0006] EP 2180676 also describes a mobile device with a projection facility. Motion of the mobile terminal is translated into a change in the projected image.

    [0007] Therefore, a need exists for a mobile device capable of projecting an image of an area desired to be viewed by a user from among the entire image expressing content being replayed or accessed on the mobile device, and capable of intuitively changing and manipulating a projected image, and a method of projecting an image by using the mobile device.

    [0008] The above information is presented as background information only to assist with an understanding of the present disclosure. No determination has been made, and no assertion is made, as to whether any of the above might be applicable as prior art with regard to the present disclosure.

    DETAILED DESCRIPTION



    [0014] The following description with reference to the accompanying drawings is provided to assist in a comprehensive understanding of various embodiments of the present disclosure as defined by the claims. It includes various specific details to assist in that understanding but these are to be regarded as merely exemplary. Accordingly, those of ordinary skill in the art will recognize that various changes and modifications of the various embodiments described herein can be made without departing from the scope of the present disclosure. In addition, descriptions of well-known functions and constructions may be omitted for clarity and conciseness.

    [0015] FIGS. 1A and 1B are conceptual diagrams schematically illustrating a method of projecting an image by using a mobile device according to an embodiment of the present disclosure.

    [0016] Referring to FIGS. 1A and 1B, a mobile device 100 according to an embodiment of the present disclosure may project a portion of an image or the entire image that is renderable by using the mobile device 100, onto an object 5. For example, the mobile device 100 may project an image area 20a displayed on the mobile device 100, from among an entire image 10 expressing content being replayed or accessed on the mobile device 100. Images that are renderable by using the mobile device 100 include an image showing a function performed on the mobile device 100, an execution screen of an application, and the like, a replay screen of image content, a broadcasting screen, and the like.

    [0017] Referring to FIG. 1A, a partial area of an image of a webpage accessed on the mobile device 100 may be projected onto an object 5. For example, when the mobile device 100 displays a portion of a webpage as illustrated in FIG. 1B, the mobile device 100 may project the portion of the webpage displayed on a screen of the mobile device 100, from among the entire area of the webpage that is being accessed, onto the object 5. The object 5 refers to a surface on which a projected image may be expressed, and includes, for example, a wall, a roll screen, a whiteboard, and the like. The object 5 may have various forms, such as a planar surface or a curved surface.

    [0018] Meanwhile, according to an embodiment of the present disclosure, when the mobile device 100 moves, an image displayed on the mobile device 100 may be changed according to a movement direction of the mobile device 100. The mobile device 100 according to the present embodiment may change an image area being displayed thereon, from among the entire image 10, according to a movement direction of the mobile device 100. For example, as illustrated in FIG. 1A, an image area to be displayed may be changed from a first projection image 20a to a second projection image 20b according to movement of the mobile device 100. Examples of movement of the mobile device 100 may include a change in a position value of the mobile device 100 or a change in an inclination value of the mobile device 100 with respect to a preset rotational axis.

    [0019] For example, as illustrated in FIG. 1A, the mobile device 100 may generate the first projection image 20a by projecting a first area displayed on a screen thereof from among a webpage that is presently being accessed, onto the object 5. If a projection direction of the mobile device 100 is changed to point toward a left upper side, the first projection image 20a displayed on the screen may be changed as illustrated in FIG. 1A. In order that movement of the mobile device 100 and a projection image correspond to each other, the mobile device 100 may project an image area existing on a left upper end of the first area displayed on the screen to thereby generate the second projection image 20b.

    [0020] FIG. 2 is a flowchart of a method of changing an image projected, by using a mobile device, onto an object according to an embodiment of the present disclosure.

    [0021] Referring to FIG. 2, in operation 210, the mobile device 100 may determine, as a first projection image 20a, an image area displayed on the mobile device 100, from among the entire image 10 expressing content being replayed or accessed on the mobile device 100.

    [0022] When a web browser is being accessed on the mobile device 100, a webpage selected by a user may be displayed on the screen of the mobile device 100. The mobile device 100 may determine the webpage displayed on the screen thereof as a first projection image 20a.

    [0023] Meanwhile, a user may determine not only a type of an image displayed on the screen of the mobile device 100 but also a size of the image. For example, the user may expand or reduce a webpage displayed on the screen of the mobile device 100. When the webpage displayed on the screen of the mobile device 100 is expanded, only a portion of the expanded webpage is displayed on the screen of the mobile device 100. In this case, the mobile device 100 may determine the portion of the webpage displayed on the screen thereof as a projection image.

    [0024] In operation 220, the mobile device 100 may project the first projection image 20a and a pointer disposed on the first projection image 20a on the object 5. For example, the mobile device 100 may project the first projection image 20a determined in operation 210, on a surface of a wall. If the image displayed on the screen of the mobile device 100 is a portion of the expanded webpage, the portion of the expanded webpage may be projected on a corresponding portion of the wall.

    [0025] In addition, the mobile device 100 may project the pointer together with the first projection image 20a.

    [0026] According to an embodiment of the present disclosure, the pointer performs the function of indicating a certain point on the first projection image 20a. For example, the pointer may be used to attract the attention of a user who is viewing the first projection image 20a.

    [0027] According to an embodiment of the present disclosure, the pointer may function as a cursor used to select a point to which a command is to be input. For example, by using the pointer, the user may enter a mode in which a command may be input to a login window or a search window of a website, or input a signal for selecting a certain object of a website.

    [0028] The pointer may be scanned on the object 5 together with the first projection image 20a. The pointer may have various shapes, such as an arrow, a circle, a rectangle, a triangle, and the like. According to an embodiment of the present disclosure, according to a user's selection, or according to control of the mobile device 100, a shape of the pointer may be changed. For example, the mobile device 100 may change a shape of the pointer based on a state or mode of the mobile device 100.

    [0029] According to an embodiment of the present disclosure, a position of a pointer disposed on a first projection image may be determined based on a preset reference point. For example, if a user sets a center of a projection image as a reference point, the mobile device 100 may dispose a pointer at a center of a projection image, and may project the projection image on which a pointer is disposed, onto the object 5. According to the present embodiment of the present disclosure, if a pointer is preset to be disposed at a center of a projection image, an image projected onto the object 5 according to movement of the mobile device 100 is changed from the first projection image 20a to the second projection image 20b, and the pointer may also be moved from a center of the first projection image 20a to a center of the second projection image 20b. Accordingly, by moving the mobile device 100, the user may change a projection image, and also, at the same time, may intuitively change a position where the pointer is disposed among the entire image 10.

    [0030] A projection image projected by the mobile device 100 onto the object 5 and a pointer disposed on the projection image will be described below with reference to FIG. 3.

    [0031] In operation 230, the mobile device 100 detects movement of itself to change a projection image among the entire image. When the mobile device 100 moves, a position and an inclination of the mobile device 100 may be changed. According to an embodiment of the present disclosure, a position value of the mobile device 100 may be determined based on coordinate values thereof that are changed according to horizontal and vertical movements thereof. In addition, according to an embodiment of the present disclosure, an inclination of the mobile device 100 may be determined based on a rotational angle value thereof indicating a degree of rotation thereof with respect to each axis based on a three-dimensional axis space. This will be described below with reference to FIGS. 9 and 10.

    [0032] The mobile device 100 may detect movement of itself and may change a projection image based on a position value and an inclination value thereof that are changed according to the movement. For example, when the mobile device 100 has moved after a first image area from among the entire area of a webpage on a screen of the mobile device 100 is projected onto the object 5 as a projection image, the mobile device 100 may change the first projection image 20a based on the position value and the inclination value thereof that are changed according to the movement thereof. When the mobile device 100 has moved, the mobile device 100 may detect the changed position value and the changed inclination value thereof and determine the second projection image 20b corresponding to the changed position value and the changed inclination value. For example, when the mobile device 100 detects itself moving toward the left with respect to a current projection direction, the mobile device 100 may determine an image located on the left side of the first projection image 20a as the second projection image 20b.

    [0033] If the mobile device 100 projects a partial image from among the entire image displayed on the screen, onto the object 5, the user may change the projection image by moving the mobile device 100.

    [0034] FIG. 3 illustrates a projection image projected on an object by using a mobile device and a pointer disposed on the projection image according to an embodiment of the present disclosure.

    [0035] Referring to FIG. 3, the mobile device 100 may determine a partial image displayed on a screen thereof from among the entire image of a webpage, as the projection image 20. The mobile device 100 may project a projection image 20 onto the object 5.

    [0036] In addition, the mobile device 100 may dispose a pointer 25 based on a preset reference point 105 of the projection image 20 together with the projection image 20. For example, the mobile device 100 may determine a center of the screen thereof as the reference point 105. The mobile device 100 may dispose the pointer 25 at a position on the projection image 20 corresponding to the reference point 105.

    [0037] According to an embodiment of the present disclosure, the user may change a position of the pointer 25 in the current projection image 20. A method of changing the position of the pointer 25 will be described below with reference to FIGS. 5 to 11.

    [0038] FIG. 4 is a block diagram illustrating a mobile device projecting a projection image and a pointer disposed on the projection image according to an embodiment of the present disclosure.

    [0039] Referring to FIG. 4, only elements of the mobile device 100 related to the present embodiment are illustrated. Thus, it will be obvious to one of ordinary skill in the art related to the present embodiment that general-use elements other than the elements illustrated in FIG. 4 may be further included.

    [0040] Referring to FIG. 4, the mobile device 100 may include an image processor 110, a projector 120, a display unit 130, and a movement detector 140.

    [0041] The display unit 130 displays content being replayed or accessed on the mobile device 100. The display unit 130 displays an image of the content based on image data output from the image processor 110 on a screen of the mobile device 100.

    [0042] The image processor 110 may determine, as a projection image, an image area displayed on the mobile device 100, from among the entire image expressing the content being replayed or accessed on the mobile device 100. The image processor 110 may determine a partial area to be displayed on the display unit 130 among the entire image to generate image data to be output to the display unit 130, and output the image data to the display unit 130. In addition, the partial area to be displayed on the display unit 130 is determined as the projection image.

    [0043] In addition, the image processor 110 may detect movement of the mobile device 100 to change the projection image from among the entire image.

    [0044] The movement detector 140 may detect movement of the mobile device 100 to obtain a position value and an inclination value of the mobile device 100. The movement detector 140 outputs the position value and the inclination value of the mobile device 100 to the image processor 110. For example, the movement detector 140 may output a change in the position value and the inclination value of the mobile device 100 after movement of the mobile device 100 is detected.

    [0045] The movement detector 140 may include at least one of a geomagnetic sensor, an acceleration sensor, and a gyroscope, but is not limited thereto. Functions of respective sensors may be intuitively deduced from the names thereof by one of ordinary skill in the art, and thus description thereof will be omitted.

    [0046] In addition, the image processor 110 may perform control needed to project a projection image onto the object 5, and when movement of the mobile device 100 is detected, the image processor 110 performs control needed to update image data based on a changed position value or a changed inclination value of the mobile device 100. For example, the image processor 110 changes an image projected onto the object 5 based on the changed position value and the changed inclination value of the mobile device 100 and the projection image 20a which is not changed.

    [0047] Meanwhile, when the mobile device 100 moves, a position of a pointer disposed according to the changed projection image 20b may also be changed according to the change of the position value and the inclination value of the mobile device 100 detected by the image processor 110.

    [0048] The projector 120 may project the projection image and the pointer disposed on the projection image onto the object 5. According to an embodiment of the present disclosure, a position of the pointer disposed on the projection image may be determined based on a preset reference point. For example, when the user sets a center of the projection image as a reference point, the projector 120 may dispose the pointer at the center of the projection image and project the projection image on which the pointer is disposed, onto the object 5.

    [0049] When the projection image is changed according to movement of the mobile device 100, the projector 120 may receive the changed projection image from the image processor 110 to project the same onto the object 5.

    [0050] FIG. 5 is a flowchart of a method of changing a position of a pointer on a projection image based on a user input, by using a mobile device according to an embodiment of the present disclosure.

    [0051] Referring to FIG. 5, in operation 510, the mobile device 100 may determine, as a projection image 20, an image area displayed on the mobile device 100, from among the entire image 100 expressing content being replayed or accessed on the mobile device 100. The image area displayed on the mobile device 100 may be an image area displayed on a screen of the mobile device 100. The image area displayed on the screen of the mobile device 100 may indicate a portion of the entire image or the actual entire image. In addition, the displayed image may be an image obtained by expanding a partial area of the entire image.

    [0052] Meanwhile, operation 510 may correspond to operation 210 of FIG. 2.

    [0053] In operation 520, the mobile device 100 may project a projection image and a pointer disposed on the projection image onto the object 5. In addition, the mobile device 100 may project the pointer together with the projection image. A position of the pointer disposed on the projection image may be determined based on a preset reference point.

    [0054] Meanwhile, operation 520 may correspond to operation 220 of FIG. 2.

    [0055] In operation 530, the mobile device 100 may change a position of the pointer on the projection image based on an obtained user input. The mobile device 100 may receive a user input for moving the pointer to a certain point included in the projection image. The user input may include information about the changed position of the pointer. For example, the user input may include information about a movement position value indicating how much the pointer is to be moved in an x-axis or y-axis direction with respect to a present position of the pointer on the projection image.

    [0056] The mobile device 100 may display the pointer at the changed position of the pointer on the projection image indicated by the obtained user input. For example, if the user drags the pointer in a direction in which the pointer is intended to be moved, while touching the screen of the mobile device 100, the mobile device 100 may display the pointer as moving according to the direction in which the user drags the pointer. A method of displaying the pointer is not limited thereto.

    [0057] Hereinafter, a method of moving a position of a pointer to a certain point based on a user input to the mobile device 100 will be described below with reference to FIG. 6.

    [0058] FIG. 6 is a view illustrating a change in a position of a pointer on a projection image based on a user input according to an embodiment of the present disclosure.

    [0059] Referring to FIG. 6, the mobile device 100 may generate the projection image 20 by projecting an image area displayed on a screen thereof from among the entire image expressing content being replayed or accessed, onto the object 5. The pointer 25 may be displayed at a position on the projection image 20 corresponding to a preset reference point 35 on the screen of the mobile device 100.

    [0060] Meanwhile, the mobile device 100 may obtain a user input that is input to the screen thereof. The user may touch the screen of the mobile device 100 by using an input instrument, such as a touch pen or a finger, to input information about a position of the pointer, to which the pointer is to be moved on the projection image 20, to the mobile device 100. However, the user may also input to the mobile device 100 information about a position, to which the pointer 25 is to be moved on the projection image, by moving an input instrument or finger within a preset distance to the mobile device 100.

    [0061] Referring to FIG. 6, the mobile device 100 may move the pointer 25 located at a center of the projection image 20 to a right upper end of the projection image 20 based on a user input. For example, while touching a certain point 35 on the screen, the mobile device 100 may move the pointer 25 from a preset point 35 toward the right upper end when receiving a user input indicating to drag the pointer 25 to the right upper end.

    [0062] The mobile device 100 according to an embodiment of the present disclosure may display the pointer 25 on the projection image 20 and may display a change in a position of the pointer 25 that is moved based on a user input. Thus, the user may select a desired service from among services provided through content being replayed or accessed on the mobile device 100.

    [0063] FIG. 7 is a block diagram illustrating a mobile device changing a position of a pointer on a projection image based on a user input according to an embodiment of the present disclosure.

    [0064] Referring to FIG. 7, only elements of the mobile device 100 related to the present embodiment are illustrated. Thus, it will be obvious to one of ordinary skill in the art related to the present embodiment that general-use elements other than the elements illustrated in FIG. 7 may be further included.

    [0065] Referring to FIG. 7, the mobile device 100 may include an image processor 110, a projector 120, a display unit 130, a movement detector 140, and a user input unit 150.

    [0066] The image processor 110 may determine, as a projection image 20, an image area displayed on the mobile device 100, from among the entire image expressing content being replayed or accessed on the mobile device 100.

    [0067] The image processor 110 may determine a position of a pointer 25 disposed on a projection image 20 based on a preset reference point on a screen of the mobile device 100. The pointer 25 performs the function of indicating a certain point on the projection image 20. For example, the image processor 110 may determine, as a projection image, an image displayed on the screen of the mobile device 100, from among the entire image, and may determine a reference point at a center of the image displayed on the screen. The image processor 110 may dispose the pointer 25 at a center of the projection image 20 such that the pointer 25 corresponds to the determined reference point.

    [0068] Meanwhile, the pointer 25 disposed on the projection image 20 may be moved within the projection image 20 based on a user input. The user input may include information about a changed position of the pointer 25. Movement of the pointer 25 based on a user input and the information about the changed position of the pointer 25 will be described below with reference to the user input unit 150 later.

    [0069] The projector 120 may project the projection image 20 and the pointer 25 disposed on the projection image 20, onto the object 5.

    [0070] When the projection image 20 is changed according to movement of the mobile device 100, the projector 120 may receive the changed projection image from the image processor 110 and project the same onto the object 5. The projector 120 may include a light source (not shown) emitting light to be used in projection, a light modulation unit (not shown) modulating light incident from the light source, according to an image signal, and a lens unit (not shown) projecting light incident from the light modulation unit onto a screen. The light modulation unit may include, for example, a cathode ray tube (CRT) or a light emitting diode (LED).

    [0071] The user input unit 150 receives a user input. The user input unit 150 may be formed of a keypad or a touch screen formed of combination of various keys, through which various numbers, letters, or symbols and various user commands may be input. The user input unit 150 may transmit a user input requesting a change in a position of a pointer, according to an embodiment of the present disclosure, to the image processor 110.

    [0072] Meanwhile, the user input unit 150 may obtain a command for initializing projection images 20a and 20b determined by the mobile device 100. When the mobile device 100 receives a command for initializing a projection image determined by using the mobile device 100, the user input unit 150 may transmit a user input to the image processor 110. The image processor 110 may redetermine a projection image at an initialized position based on the user input.

    [0073] FIG. 8 is a flowchart of a method of changing a position of a pointer on a projection image by moving a mobile device according to an embodiment of the present disclosure.

    [0074] Referring to FIG. 8, in operation 810, the mobile device 100 may determine, as a projection image 20, an image area displayed on the mobile device 100, from among the entire image 10 expressing content being replayed or accessed on the mobile device 100. The image area displayed on the mobile device 100 may be an image area displayed on a screen of the mobile device 100. The image area displayed on the screen of the mobile device 100 may be differently determined not only according to image types but also according to image sizes.

    [0075] Meanwhile, operation 810 may correspond to operation 210 of FIG. 2.

    [0076] In operation 820, the mobile device 100 may project a projection image and a pointer disposed on the projection image, onto the object 5. In addition, the mobile device 100 may project the pointer together with the projection image. A position of the pointer disposed on the projection image may be determined based on a preset reference point.

    [0077] Meanwhile, operation 820 may correspond to operation 220 of FIG. 2.

    [0078] In operation 830, the mobile device 100 may detect a change in an inclination or position thereof.

    [0079] The mobile device 100 may detect a change in an inclination or a position thereof by using at least one of a geomagnetic sensor, an acceleration sensor, and a gyroscope included in the mobile device 100.

    [0080] The user may change a projection image 20a projected onto the object 5 by moving the mobile device 100. If a change in an inclination or a position of the mobile device 100 exceeds a preset critical value, the mobile device 100 may determine that the user has moved the mobile device 100 in order to change the projection image 20a. According to an embodiment of the present disclosure, if the change of the inclination or the position of the mobile device 100 is maintained for a preset period of time or longer, the mobile device 100 may determine that the user has moved the mobile device 100 in order to change the projection image 20a.

    [0081] In operation 840, the mobile device 100 may detect a variation in the inclination or the position thereof.

    [0082] For example, if a change in the inclination or the position of the mobile device 100 exceeds a preset critical value and is maintained for a preset period of time or longer, the mobile device 100 may detect a variation in the inclination or the position thereof.

    [0083] According to an embodiment of the present disclosure, if the detected variation in the inclination or the position of the mobile device 100 for a preset period of time exceeds a preset critical value, the mobile device 100 may initialize position information or inclination information thereof. When generating a changed projection image 20b, if an amount of movement of the mobile device 100 is large, distortion is highly likely to occur in the changed projection image 20b. Thus, in this case, a new projection image may be determined by initializing position information or inclination information of the mobile device 100 at a position to which the mobile device 100 is moved.

    [0084] In operation 850, the mobile device 100 may redetermine a projection image based on the detected variation in the inclination or position thereof.

    [0085] By using the variation in the mobile device's inclination or position, the mobile device 100 may redetermine a new projection image from among the entire image expressing content being accessed or replayed on the mobile device 100. For example, the mobile device 100 may redetermine a second projection image that is moved from a first projection image that is projected before the mobile device 100 has moved, by an amount of an area corresponding to the detected variation in the inclination or position within the entire image.

    [0086] Meanwhile, the mobile device 100 may set the pointer 25 such that the pointer 25 is always at the same position within the projection image 20. For example, the mobile device 100 may set the pointer 25 such that the pointer 25 is always at a center point in the projection image 20. If there is a certain point to be selected using the pointer 25 from among the entire image expressing content being replayed or accessed on the mobile device 100, the user may move the mobile device 100 so that the pointer 25 corresponds to the certain point.

    [0087] When the projection image 20 is redetermined according to movement of the mobile device 100, the mobile device 100 according to an embodiment of the present disclosure may correct distortion of the projection image 20. If an inclination value of the mobile device 100 is changed, an image projected onto the object 5 may be distorted due to spreading of the projection image 20, and the like. A method of correcting distortion by using the mobile device 100 will be described below with reference to FIGS. 12A, 12B, 13A, and 13B.

    [0088] In operation 860, the mobile device 100 may project the redetermined projection image and a pointer disposed on the redetermined projection image.

    [0089] Meanwhile, if the redetermined projection image is not projected onto the object 5 within a preset period of time, the mobile device 100 may initialize the redetermined projection image and determine a new projection image at a position to which the mobile device 100 is moved. The mobile device 100 may determine whether the redetermined projection image is projected onto the object 5 within a preset period of time based on an image of the object 5 captured by using a camera.

    [0090] FIGS. 9A and 9B are diagrams illustrating a method of changing a position of a pointer by moving a mobile device according to an embodiment of the present disclosure.

    [0091] Referring to FIGS. 9A and 9B, the mobile device 100 according to an embodiment of the present disclosure may dispose the pointer 25 at a preset certain point on a projection image 20 projected onto the object 5. Thus, the user may move the mobile device 100 to specify, by using the pointer 25, an image area desired by a user, from among the entire image expressing content being accessed or replayed.

    [0092] Referring to FIG. 9A, a position value of the mobile device 100 projecting the projection image 20 vertically with respect to the object 5 may be changed in a horizontal direction or a vertical direction according to a user input, or an inclination value of the mobile device 100 may be changed with respect to one of an x-axis, a y-axis, and a z-axis. If the position value or the inclination value of the mobile device 100 is changed, a projection image that is selected from among the entire image may also be changed.

    [0093] FIG. 9A illustrates a world coordinate system illustrating a changed position of the pointer 25 as a result of movement of the mobile device 100. In addition, FIG. 9B illustrates a model coordinate system illustrating a changed position of the pointer 25 as a result of movement of the mobile device 100. The mobile device 100 may perform a conversion process expressed in Equations 1 to 6 below in order to dispose the pointer 25 on the projection image 20 based on a changed position value or a changed inclination value of the mobile device 100.

    [0094] In Equation 1 below, by using rotational angles whereby the mobile device 100 is rotated with respect to the-x axis, the y-axis, and the z-axis, inclination values Rr, Ry, and Rp of the mobile device 100 with respect to the x-axis, the y-axis, and the z-axis may be obtained.



    [0095] In Equation 1, roll, yaw, and pitch denote rotational angle values of the mobile device 100 rotated with respect to the x-axis, the y-axis, and the z-axis, respectively.

    [0096] FIGS. 10A, 10B, and 10C illustrate a mobile device that is rotated with respect to the x-axis, the y-axis, and the z-axis, respectively according to an embodiment of the present disclosure.

    [0097] Referring to FIG. 10A, the mobile device 100 that is rotated with respect to the x-axis is illustrated. An angle value of the mobile device 100 rotated with respect to the x-axis corresponds to roll expressed in Equation 1.

    [0098] Referring to FIG. 10B, the mobile device 100 that is rotated with respect to the y-axis is illustrated. An angle value of the mobile device 100 rotated with respect to the y-axis corresponds to yaw expressed in Equation 1.

    [0099] Referring to FIG. 10C, the mobile device 100 that is rotated with respect to the z-axis is illustrated. An angle value of the mobile device 100 rotated with respect to the z-axis is referred to as pitch.

    [0100] Meanwhile, the mobile device 100 may obtain a conversion matrix M used in generating a projection image with respect to the object 5 based on the inclination value of the mobile device 100 obtained from Equation 1 and based on Equations 2 and 3 below.





    [0101] In Equation 2, Dist denotes a distance between the mobile device 100 and the projection image 20, O denotes a matrix including information about an inclination value of the mobile device 100, and M denotes a conversion matrix including information about conversion values needed in generating the projection image 20.

    [0102] Meanwhile, when the conversion values needed in the projection image 20 are determined, calculation for disposing the pointer 25 on the projection image 20 may be performed based on the conversion values. A position of the pointer may be determined based on Equation 4 below.



    [0103] In Equation 4, X and Y may be respectively a horizontal distance and a vertical distance between the mobile device 100 and the pointer 25 that is previously set in the projection image 20. In addition, in Equation 4, Tc denotes a conversion matrix of the pointer 25, and Mc denotes a model matrix used to convert a projection image to virtual world coordinates. A model matrix may be obtained by multiplying a conversion matrix by an inclination value of the mobile device 100.

    [0104] Meanwhile, the mobile device 100 may obtain a final matrix conversion value PPc used to dispose the pointer 25 on the projection image 20 by multiplying the model matrix by a projection matrix P. A formula regarding the projection matrix P will be described below with reference to FIG. 11.

    [0105] Meanwhile, Equations 5 and 6 below are used to determine a position of the pointer 25 that is changed when the projection image 20 is redetermined according to movement of the mobile device 100.





    [0106] In Equation 5, c' denotes camera coordinates in a model coordinate system. Tcs denotes a conversion matrix including information about a distance from the mobile device 100 to a preset position of the pointer 25 at a changed position, and pw denotes coordinates of the pointer 25 on a non-rotated plane in a global coordinate system.

    [0107] The mobile device 100 may obtain, based on Equation 5, position information of the pointer 25 in the global coordinate system changed from the projection image 20 that is determined before the mobile device 100 has moved.

    [0108] Meanwhile, the mobile device 100 may obtain, based on Equation 6, position information of the pointer 25 in the global coordinate system changed from the projection image 20 that is determined before the mobile device 100 has moved. In Equation 6, p' denotes coordinates of the pointer 25 on a non-rotated plane in a model coordinate system, v denotes a distance between a camera of the mobile device 100 and the pointer 25 on a projection image, and P" denotes a position of the pointer 25 on the changed projection image.

    [0109] FIGS. 11A and 11B are diagrams illustrating a change in a position of a pointer as a projection image is changed when a mobile device is moved according to an embodiment of the present disclosure.

    [0110] Referring to FIG. 11A, a projection image 20a generated before movement of the mobile device 100 is illustrated. Here, a position of a pointer 25a may be disposed at a center of the projection image 20a to correspond to a preset reference point.

    [0111] Referring to FIG. 11B, a changed projection image 20b generated after movement of the mobile device 100 is illustrated. The position of a pointer 25b may be disposed at a center of the changed projection image 20b to correspond to a preset reference point. The preset reference point may include information about relative position values of the pointer 25b so as to dispose the pointer 25b at a position fixed with respect to the changed projection image 20b every time the projection image 20a is changed.

    [0112] Meanwhile, also in the changed projection image 20b, the pointer 25b has to be located at the center of the projection image 20b as is preset, and thus, a position of the pointer 25b is changed according to the changed projection image 20b.

    [0113] FIGS. 12A, 12B, 13A, and 13B are diagrams illustrating a method of correcting distortion of a projection image by using a mobile device according to an embodiment of the present disclosure.

    [0114] Referring to FIGS. 12A, 12B, 13A, and 13B, the mobile device 100 may correct distortion of a projection image 20 that is generated when an inclination value or a position value of the mobile device 100, at which an image is projected from the mobile device 100 is changed. For example, if an inclination or a position of the mobile device 100 is changed, a projection image may not be vertically projected from the mobile device 100 on the object 5. In this case, the image projected on the object 5 may be spread, thus causing distortion.

    [0115] The mobile device 100, according to an embodiment of the present disclosure, may measure an amount of movement thereof so as to predict an image area of an image that is projected from a changed position of the mobile device 100 without distortion.

    [0116] FIG. 12A illustrates a projection image 20a before the mobile device 100 performs correction. As the mobile device 100 is moved to rotate with respect to an x-axis, an inclination of the mobile device 100 is changed, and the projection image 20a projected onto the object 5 may be spread.

    [0117] The mobile device 100 may predict a projection image that is to be formed without distortion, at a certain position based on information about an amount of movement of the mobile device 100, for example, based on a position variation or an angle variation of the mobile device 100. For example, when it is assumed that the mobile device 100 is located in a direction perpendicular to a projection point at which a changed projection image is to be located, the mobile device 100 may predict a projection image to be generated and may project the predicted projection image onto an object.

    [0118] FIG. 12B illustrates a projection image 20b with which distortion due to movement of the mobile device 100 is corrected.

    [0119] Referring to FIG. 12B, the distorted projection image 20a is corrected like a projection image generated by projection by using the mobile device 100 at a position perpendicular to a projection point.

    [0120] In addition, when the projection image 20a illustrated in FIG. 13A and generated by using the mobile device 100 is distorted, as described with reference to FIGS. 12A and 12B, a projection image generated without distortion may be predicted at a corresponding position based on information about an amount of movement of the mobile device 100, for example, a position variation or an angle variation thereof. For example, when it is assumed that the mobile device 100 is located in a direction perpendicular to a projection point at which a changed projection image is to be located, the mobile device 100 may predict a projection image to be generated and may project the predicted projection image onto an object.

    [0121] Meanwhile, correction of a projection image may be performed using Equations 7 to 9 below. Equations 7 and 8 are conversion formulas used in projecting an image area displayed on a screen of the mobile device 100, and Equation 9 is a conversion formula used in correcting distortion of a projection image.







    [0122] In Equations 7 and 8, f denotes a maximum viewpoint distance, n denotes a minimum viewpoint distance, Dist denotes a distance between the mobile device 100 and a projection image projected by using the mobile device 100, and t, b, r, and 1 denote distances from a center of an image to an upper edge, a lower edge, a left edge, and a right edge, respectively. In Equation 7, VAOV and HAOV denote a vertical angle of view and a horizontal angle of view, respectively.

    [0123] A conversion formula of the projection image 20a projected on the object 5 is determined based on a model matrix M derived from Equation 3 described above and an inclination value P including rotation information of the mobile device 100.

    [0124] Meanwhile, the projected projection image 20a may be distorted, and thus, the mobile device 100 has to be able to correct the distortion. Distortion may be corrected by predicting at which position on the object 5 the projection image 20 is to be projected, based on an amount of movement of the mobile device 100, and installing a program whereby distortion of the projection image 20a due to movement of the mobile device 100 at vertex coordinates of the projection image 20a may be corrected.
