[0012] An electronic device according to various embodiments of the disclosure may include at least one of, for example, a smart phone, a tablet Personal Computer (PC), a mobile phone, a video phone, an electronic book reader (e-book reader), a desktop PC, a laptop PC, a netbook computer, a workstation, a server, a Personal Digital Assistant (PDA), a Portable Multimedia Player (PMP), a MPEG-1 audio layer-3 (MP3) player, a mobile medical device, a camera, and a wearable device. According to various embodiments, the wearable device may include at least one of an accessory type (e.g., a watch, a ring, a bracelet, an anklet, a necklace, a glasses, a contact lens, or a Head-Mounted Device (HMD)), a fabric or clothing integrated type (e.g., an electronic clothing), a body-mounted type (e.g., a skin pad, or tattoo), and a bio-implantable type (e.g., an implantable circuit). In some embodiments, the electronic device may include at least one of, for example, a television, a Digital Video Disk (DVD) player, an audio, a refrigerator, an air conditioner, a vacuum cleaner, an oven, a microwave oven, a washing machine, an air cleaner, a set-top box, a home automation control panel, a security control panel, a TV box (e.g., Samsung HomeSync™, Apple TV™, or Google TV™), a game console (e.g., Xbox™ and PlayStation™), an electronic dictionary, an electronic key, a camcorder, and an electronic photo frame.

[0013] In other embodiments, the electronic device may include at least one of various medical devices (e.g., various portable medical measuring devices (a blood glucose monitoring device, a heart rate monitoring device, a blood pressure measuring device, a body temperature measuring device, etc.), a Magnetic Resonance Angiography (MRA), a Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI), a Computed Tomography (CT) machine, and an ultrasonic machine), a navigation device, a Global Positioning System (GPS) receiver, an Event Data Recorder (EDR), a Flight Data Recorder (FDR) , a Vehicle Infotainment Devices, an electronic devices for a ship (e.g., a navigation device for a ship, and a gyro-compass), avionics, security devices, an automotive head unit, a robot for home or industry, an automatic teller's machine (ATM) in banks, point of sales (POS) in a shop, or internet device of things (e.g., a light bulb, various sensors, electric or gas meter, a sprinkler device, a fire alarm, a thermostat, a streetlamp, a toaster, a sporting goods, a hot water tank, a heater, a boiler, etc.). According to some embodiments, an electronic device may include at least one of a part of furniture or a building/structure, an electronic board, an electronic signature receiving device, a projector, and various types of measuring instruments (e.g., a water meter, an electric meter, a gas meter, a radio wave meter, and the like). In various embodiments, the electronic device may be flexible, or may be a combination of one or more of the aforementioned various devices. The electronic device according to one embodiment of the disclosure is not limited to the above described devices. In the disclosure, the term "user" may indicate a person using an electronic device or a device (e.g., an artificial intelligence electronic device) using an electronic device.

[0014] In the disclosure, an object is displayed by a display, and may include an image, text, and the like which may detect a user input. For example, the object may be an icon displayed on a background screen, a play button, a pause button, a stop button displayed by a music application, and/or a keyboard input button, and the like.

[0015] A user who uses an electronic device may abnormally select an object displayed on a display of the electronic device due to a certain user state. For example, when the user uses the electronic device while moving, the user may inaccurately select an object displayed on the display. As another example, when the user wears gloves, when the eyesight of the user is poor, when the sensitivity of an input detection sensor included in the display of the electronic device decreases due to wintry weather, or when the user suffers from a certain disease, the user may inaccurately select the displayed object.

[0016] In the description provided below, there are provided an electronic device and an operation method therefor, which may provide a user interface (UI) improved to be suitable for the state of the user.

[0017] FIG. 1 is a flowchart illustrating an operation of providing, by an electronic device, a user interface (UI) according to various embodiments. For ease of description, although FIG. 1 illustrates that the operations are implemented by an electronic device, each of the operations may be implemented by a component included in the electronic device. For example, each of the operations may be executed by at least one processor included in the electronic device. Also, each of the operations may be a set of instructions or an application programming interface (API) stored in a memory of the electronic device. Also, some of the operations may be omitted or added depending on a method of implementing each of the operations illustrated in FIG. 1, and the same operation may be repeatedly performed.

[0018] Referring to FIG. 1, in operation 110, the electronic device may display a UI including an object, which has a first size and is to be used to execute at least one function of an application that runs in the electronic device. In the disclosure, the first size indicates a size set in advance by an application (a default size). Depending on implementation, a plurality of objects may be used. For example, when a music application runs in the electronic device, the object may be an album image of a certain artist, a play button, a pause button, a stop button, a rewind button, a fast-forward button, a repeat button, a random button, and the like.

[0019] In operation 120, the electronic device may detect the movement of the electronic device on the basis of data obtained via a sensor of the electronic device. A method of detecting the movement of the electronic device may vary depending on implementation. For example, the electronic device may detect the movement of the electronic device using one or more from among a global positioning system (GPS) or geo-magnetic sensor, a gravity sensor, an acceleration sensor, and a gyro sensor. As another example, when the electronic device enters a vehicle, the electronic device may communicate with a beacon device or a vehicle system installed in the vehicle, thereby detecting that the electronic device enters the vehicle.

[0020] In operation 130, the electronic device may display a UI including an object of which the size is changed from the first size to a second size on the basis of the detected movement of the electronic device and information indicating an input frequency. In the disclosure, the second size indicates a size different from the first size, and the second size may be determined by one of the various methods. According to an embodiment, the second size may be a size based on a rate set in advance by the electronic device (a default rate). According to another embodiment, the second size may be determined to be different depending on the level of an input frequency value of the object which is classified according to a predetermined criterion. For example, when the level corresponding to the input frequency value of the object is level 1, the electronic device may enlarge the size of the object by a rate corresponding to level 1. As another example, when the input frequency value of the object is greater than the input frequency value corresponding to level 1 (i.e., level 2), the electronic device may enlarge the size of the object by a rate corresponding to level 2 (i.e., a rate higher than the rate corresponding to level 1).

[0021] As another example, the second size may be determined on the basis of information associated with an incorrect input. For example, when the electronic device detects that the user of the electronic device does not normally provide an input to the object and provide an input to an upper portion of the object frequently, the electronic device may enlarge the size of the object in the vertical direction.

[0022] The information indicating the frequency of an input may vary depending on implementation. According to an embodiment, the information indicating the frequency of an input may be heatmap information indicating the input frequency of a user input detected within a region of the object. A heatmap may be information representing frequencies of occurrence of events (detected user inputs) that occur within a predetermined region in different colors. The electronic device may recognize an object to which the user of the electronic device frequently provides an input, using heatmap information generated on the basis of the frequency value of a user input detected during a predetermined period of time.

[0023] According to another embodiment, the information indicating the frequency of an input may be the frequency value of a user input detected beyond the region of the object. For example, when a music application runs in the electronic device, the user may abnormally provide an input to a play button displayed by the electronic device, but provide an input to a region beyond the play button, while walking. The electronic device may recognize a pattern of an incorrect input provided by the user of the electronic device, using heatmap information generated according to the frequency value of a user input (in the disclosure, a user input detected beyond the region of the object is referred to as an incorrect input) detected beyond the region of the object during a predetermined period of time.

[0024] The electronic device may update information stored in advance, in addition to the information indicating the frequency of an input to the object. As an example, the information stored in advance may be size enlargement information set in advance in the electronic device. In other words, when the movement of the electronic device is detected, the electronic device may display a UI in which an object is enlarged (or reduced) from the first size to the second size according to a rate set in advance in the electronic device. According to another embodiment, the information stored in advance may include one or more from among information associated with the age, gender, eyesight, a medical history, and the like. For example, when the eyesight of the user is less than a predetermined reference value (e.g., an eyesight of 0.1) and the user may not recognize an object displayed in the electronic device, or when the user abnormally provides an input to a displayed object due to a certain disease (e.g., Parkinson disease), the electronic device may display a UI including an object of which the size is changed from the first size to the second size. The information stored in advance may be updated by a predetermined period (e.g., every day, every week, or every month).

[0025] FIG. 2 is a diagram illustrating an operation of displaying a UI including objects of which the sizes are changed according to various embodiments. In FIG. 2, it is assumed that a music application runs in an electronic device, and the electronic device may provide a UI according to the same principal, even when another application runs (e.g., a media reproduction application, a game application, a schedule application, a text or call application, or the like).

[0026] Referring to FIG. 2, the electronic device displays a UI 200a indicating that music is being reproduced. The UI 200a may include at least one object. For example, the UI 200a may include an image 210 related to music that is currently reproduced, a rewind button 212a, a pause button 212b, a stop button 212c, a fast-forward button 212d, a random button 214a, and a repeat button 214b. Although not illustrated in FIG. 2, another object may be included in the UI 200a depending on the embodiment. For example, a play button, a song list button, and/or a menu button may be further included.

[0027] In a normal situation, a user of the electronic device may normally select an object included in the UI 200a. However, when the electronic device detects the situation in which the user has difficulty in normally selecting the object (e.g., when the user is moving), the electronic device may display a UI 200b in which some objects are enlarged. Also, the remaining objects to which an input is less frequently provided by the user may be displayed as they are or may be displayed to be smaller than those of the normal state. For example, the rewind button 212a, the pause button 212b, the stop button 212c, and the fast-forward button 212d may be displayed in enlarged sizes. Also, when it is determined that the image 210 is less frequently selected, the electronic device may display the image 210 of which the size is reduced. Objects included in the UI 200b may be rearranged according to changed sizes. For example, the rewind button 212a and the fast-forward button 212d may be located in the center of the UI 200b, and the pause button 212b and the stop button 212c may be disposed in the lower portion of the UI 200b. Also, the image 210, the random button 214a, and the repeat button 214b may be arranged at regular intervals.

[0028] FIG. 3A to 3C are diagrams illustrating an operation of storing, by an electronic device, heatmap information associated with a user input according to various embodiments. Some of the operations may be omitted or added depending on a method of implementing each of the operations illustrated in FIG. 3A, and the same operation may be repeatedly performed.

[0029] Referring to FIG. 3A, after the electronic device displays the UI including the object having the first size in operation 110, the electronic device determines whether a user input is detected within the region of the displayed object in operation 310. The region of the object indicates the range of an input used for recognizing that a user selects the object. For example, referring to FIG. 3B, when a user input is detected from the rewind button 212a, the pause button 212b, the stop button 212c, or the fast-forward button 212d, the electronic device may determine that a user input is detected within the region of each object. In this instance, the electronic device may proceed with operation 320.

[0030] When a user input is detected beyond the region of a displayed object, the electronic device may proceed with operation 330. A method of determining whether a user input is detected beyond the region of an object may vary depending on implementation. According to an embodiment, when a user input is detected beyond the regions of a plurality of displayed objects (i.e., a region where the objects are not displayed), the electronic device may determine that a user input is not detected within the region of an object. For example, referring to FIG. 3C, the user of the electronic device abnormally provides an input to the fast-forward button 212a due to the certain context which the user is in (e.g., when the user is moving or when the eyesight of the user is poor) , but may repeatedly provide an input to the upper portion of the rewind button 212a. In this instance, the electronic device may determine that the user input detected from the upper portion of the rewind button 212a to be an incorrect input. Also, the user of the electronic device may abnormally provide an input to the pause button 212b and the stop button 212c due to a certain context which the user is in, but may repeatedly provide an input to a region between the pause button 212b and the stop button 212c. In this instance, the electronic device may determine that the user input detected between the pause button 212b and the stop button 212c to be an incorrect input.

[0031] According to another example, the electronic device may determine that the user selects an unintended object. For example, when the electronic device receives a user input to one of a plurality of displayed objects, and receives an input in order to cancel the user input within a predetermined period of time after receiving the user input, the electronic device may determine that the user provides an input to the unintended object (i.e., an incorrect input is detected).

[0032] In operation 320, the electronic device may store heatmap information associated with the object which is generated on the basis of the input frequency value of a user input detected during a predetermined period of time. A heatmap may be information representing frequencies of occurrence of events (detected user inputs) that occur within a predetermined region in different colors. The heatmap information may be information generated on the basis of the input frequency value (e.g., 10 times, 50 times, or 100 times) of a user input which is accumulated during a predetermined period of time (e.g., a year, six months, one month, or a week). The heatmap may be represented in different colors on the basis of an input frequency value. As an input frequency value is high, the heatmap may be represented in more various colors. For example, referring to FIG. 3B, when a user input is detected from each of the rewind button 212a, the pause button 212b, the stop button 212c, and the fast-forward button 212d, the electronic device may generate a heatmap on the basis of the detected input frequency value. When the frequency value of a user input (e.g., 130 times a week) detected from the rewind button 212a and the fast-forward button 212d is greater than the frequency value of a user input (e.g., 75 times a week) detected from the pause button 212b and the stop button 212c, the electronic device may generate a heatmap including more various colors in the case of the rewind button 212a and the fast-forward button 212d. For example, the heatmap for each of the pause button 212b and the stop button 212cd may be represented using one or more colors from among green and yellow. The heatmap for each of the rewind button 212a and the fast-forward button 212d may be represented using one or more from among green, yellow, and red. The electronic device may store information associated with the generated heatmap in a storage unit of the electronic device. Also, the electronic device may update the heatmap information on the basis of a user input newly detected during a predetermined period of time.

[0033] In operation 330, the electronic device may store heatmap information generated on the basis of the input frequency value of the incorrect input. The electronic device may generate heatmap information associated with the incorrect input according to a similar principal to that of an operation implemented in operation 340. For example, referring to FIG. 3C, the electronic device may generate heatmap information associated with a user input repeatedly detected from the upper portion of the rewind button 212a (or the fast-forward button 212d). Also, the electronic device may generate heatmap information associated with a user input repeatedly detected from a region between the pause button 212b and the stop button 212c.

[0034] FIGs. 4A to 4C are diagrams illustrating an operation of adaptively providing, by an electronic device, a UI according to various embodiments. Operations illustrated in FIG. 4A are detailed implementations of the operations in operation 130 illustrated in FIG. 1. Some of the operations may be omitted or added depending on a method of implementing each of the operations illustrated in FIG. 4A, and the same operation may be repeatedly performed.

[0035] Referring to FIG. 4A, after the movement of the electronic device is detected in operation 120, the electronic device may determine whether to load the input frequency value of a user input detected within the region of an object, or to load the input frequency value of an incorrect input in operation 410. According to an embodiment, according to a previously designated setting, the electronic device may automatically load the input frequency value of a user input detected within the region of the object when movement of the electronic device is detected. In this instance, the electronic device may change the setting on the basis of an update history of information indicating the input frequency of a detected user input. For example, although the electronic device is set to load the input frequency value of a user input detected within the region of the object, when the frequency of an incorrect input, which is detected during a predetermined period of time, is a predetermined rate higher than the frequency of a user input detected within the region of the object, the electronic device may change the setting so as to load the input frequency value of the incorrect input. According to another embodiment, the user of the electronic device may designate information to load. For example, when movement of the electronic device is detected, the user of the electronic device may set the electronic device to load the input frequency value of a user input detected within the region of the object. When the electronic device determines to load the input frequency value of a user input detected within the region of the object, the electronic device may load heatmap information associated with the user input detected within the region of the object in operation 420. When the electronic device determines to load the input frequency value of an incorrect input, the electronic device may load heatmap information associated with the incorrect input in operation 450.

[0036] In operation 430, the electronic device may determine whether the input frequency value of the object is greater than a predetermined reference frequency value. The reference frequency value may vary depending on implementation. According to an embodiment, the reference frequency value may be a value set in advance in the electronic device (a default value). According to another embodiment, the reference frequency value may be a value designated by the user of the electronic device. For example, the user of the electronic device may set a reference frequency value to 100 times, which is the number of times that a user input is detected from a single object during a week. In this instance, if a user input is detected 120 times from a predetermined object during a week, the electronic device may determine that the input frequency value of the object is greater than or equal to the predetermined reference frequency value. When the input frequency value of the object is less than a predetermined reference frequency value, the electronic device may terminate an algorithm associated with the corresponding object. In other words, the electronic device may display an object of which the size is the same as or smaller than an object that is already displayed. When the input frequency value of the object is greater than or equal to a predetermined reference frequency value, the electronic device may proceed with operation 440.

[0037] In operation 440, the electronic device may display a UI including an object of which the size is changed from the first size to the second size according to a predetermined rate. The rate may vary depending on implementation. For example, the rate may be a value set in advance in the electronic device (a default value). As another example, the rate may be a value designated by the user of the electronic device. The rate may be expressed as percentages or a multiple (e.g., 1.5 times, 2 times, or 3 times).

[0038] For example, referring to FIG. 4B, until movement of the electronic device is detected, the electronic device may display a UI 400a including an image, the rewind button 210, the random button 214a, the repeat button 214b, the rewind button 212a, the pause button 212b, the stop button 212c, and the fast-forward button 212d. When movement of the electronic device is detected, the electronic device may display a UI 400b including the rewind button 212a, the pause button 212b, the stop button 212c, and the fast-forward button 212d which are enlarged by a predetermined rate since the input frequency value of a user input detected from the rewind button 212a, the pause button 212b, the stop button 212c, and the fast-forward button 212d is greater than or equal to a predetermined reference frequency value. In the case of the image 210, the frequency of a user input detected during a predetermined period of time is less than the reference frequency value, the image 210 may be displayed to be smaller than before in the UI 400b. The random button 214a and the repeat button 214b may be displayed in the UI 400b in sizes which are the same as, or similar to, previous sizes.

[0039] In operation 460, the electronic device may determine whether the input frequency value of an incorrect input is greater than or equal to the predetermined reference frequency value. The reference frequency value of an incorrect input may vary depending on implementation. For example, the reference frequency value of an incorrect input may be a value which is the same as the reference frequency value described in operation 430, or may be an independently determined value. When the input frequency value of the incorrect input to the object is less than the predetermined reference frequency value, the electronic device may terminate an algorithm associated with the corresponding object. In other words, the electronic device may display an object of which the size is the same as or smaller than an object that is already displayed. When the input frequency value of the incorrect object to the object is greater than or equal to the predetermined reference frequency value, the electronic device may proceed with operation 470.

[0040] In operation 470, the electronic device may display a UI including an object of which the size is changed from the first size on the basis of the incorrect input. For example, referring to FIG. 4C, until movement of the electronic device is detected, the electronic device may display the UI 400a including the image, the rewind button 210, the random button 214a, the repeat button 214b, the rewind button 212a, the pause button 212b, the stop button 212c, and the fast-forward button 212d. When movement of the electronic device is detected, the electronic device may display a UI 400c including objects, the shape of each being changed. In the case of the rewind button 212a and the fast-forward button 212d, a user input is frequently detected from the upper portion of the region of each object. Accordingly, the electronic device may display the rewind button 212a and the fast-forward button 212d which are enlarged in the vertical direction, in order to perform compensation associated with an incorrect input by the user. In the case of the pause button 212b and the stop button 212c, a user input is frequently detected from the left or the right portion of the region of each object. Accordingly, the electronic device may display the pause button 212b and the stop button 212c of which sizes are enlarged in the horizontal direction, in order to perform compensation of an incorrect input by the user.

[0041] FIGs. 5A and 5B are diagrams illustrating an operation of providing, by an electronic device, a UI on the basis of an input frequency value level of each object according to various embodiments. Some of the operations may be omitted or added depending on a method of implementing each of the operations illustrated in FIG. 5A, and the same operation may be repeatedly performed.

[0042] Referring to FIG. 5A, after the electronic device loads the heatmap information associated with the user input detected within the region of the object in operation 420, the electronic device may determine a level corresponding to the input frequency value of the object in operation 510. The level may vary depending on implementation. According to an embodiment, the level may be a value set in advance in the electronic device (a default value). According to another embodiment, the level may be a value designated by the user of the electronic device. For example, when the frequency value of a user input detected from a single object during a predetermined period of time (e.g., a year, six months, one month, or a week) is less than 50 times, the user of the electronic device may set the level of the corresponding object to level 1. As another example, when the frequency value of a user input detected from a single object during the same period of time is greater than or equal to 50 times and less than 100 times, the user of the electronic device may set the level of the corresponding object to level 2. As another example, when the frequency value of a user input detected from a single object during the same period of time is greater than or equal to 100 times, the user of the electronic device may set the level of the corresponding object to level 3.

[0043] For example, referring to FIG. 5B, in a displayed UI 500a, the electronic device may determine the levels of the image 210, the random button 214a, and the repeat button 214b, from which a user input is not detected (in other words, the input frequency value is less than 50 times), to be level 1. Also, the electronic device may determine the levels of the pause button 212b and the stop button 212c, the input frequency value of a user input of which is 75 times, to be level 2. Also, the electronic device may determine the levels of the rewind button 212a and the fast-forward button 212d, the input frequency value of a user input of which is 130 times, to be level 3. The period and the number of times of detection, which are used for classifying a level, are merely an example, and are not limited to a predetermined period or a predetermined number of times. Also, although FIG. 5A illustrates three levels, three or more levels may be used depending on implementation.

[0044] In operation 520, the electronic device may determine whether the level corresponding to the object is level 1. When the level of the object is level 1, the electronic device may display an object in the same size as, or in a smaller size than, the size of a previously displayed object, and may terminate an algorithm. When the level of the object is different from level 1, the electronic device may proceed with operation 530.

[0045] In operation 530, the electronic device may determine whether the level corresponding to the object is level 2. When the level of the object is level 2, the electronic device may display an object of which the size is changed from the first size to the second size in operation 540. When the level of the object is different from level 2, the electronic device may display an object of which the size is changed from the first size to a third size in operation 550. The third size is a size enlarged from the second size. For example, referring to FIG. 5B, the pause button 212b and the stop button 212c corresponding to level 2 may be displayed in sizes enlarged to be greater than the image 210, the random button 214a, and the repeat button 214b which correspond to level 1. The rewind button 212a and the fast-forward button 212d which correspond to level 3 may be displayed in sizes enlarged to be greater than the pause button 2112b and the stop button 212c which correspond to level 2. The rate by which the size of an object is enlarged for each level may vary depending on implementation. For example, the rate may be a value set in advance in the electronic device (a default value). As another example, the rate may be a value designated by the user of the electronic device. The rate may be expressed as percentages (%) or a multiple (e.g., 1.5 times, 2 times, or 3 times).

[0046] The electronic device may display a UI including an object of which the size is changed from the first size to the second size using information stored in advance in the electronic device, in addition to information indicating the frequency of an input to the object. For example, the information stored in advance may include information associated with the eyesight of a user and information indicating whether a user usually wears glasses. When the eyesight of the user is less than a predetermined level, and the user does not wear glasses, the electronic device may need to provide a UI that displays an object of which the size is enlarged.

[0047] FIGs. 6A and 6B are diagrams illustrating an operation of providing, by an electronic device, a UI on the basis of an obtained facial image of a user according to various embodiments. Some of the operations may be omitted or added depending on a method of implementing each of the operations illustrated in FIG. 6A, and the same operation may be repeatedly performed.

[0048] Referring to FIG. 6A, when movement of the electronic device is detected in operation 120, the electronic device may obtain the facial image of a user using an image sensor included in the electronic device in operation 610. The operation in which the electronic device obtains the facial image may be triggered according to various methods. According to an embodiment, in response to detecting that the tilt of the electronic device changes, the electronic device may obtain the facial image. According to an embodiment, in response to initiation of the execution of an application in the electronic device, the electronic device may obtain the facial image. For example, referring to diagram 600a of FIG. 6B, a user of the electronic device 610a brings the electronic device 610a before the eyes of the user in order to check out a UI displayed in the electronic device 610a, an image sensor 610b installed in the electronic device 610a may obtain the facial image of the user.

[0049] In operation 620, the electronic device may determine whether the user of the electronic device wears glasses on the basis of the obtained facial image. As illustrated in diagram 600b of FIG. 6B, when it is determined that the user wears glasses, the electronic device terminates an algorithm and may display a UI 600c that displays objects of which the sizes are maintained as before. As illustrated in diagram 600d of FIG. 6B, when it is determined that the user does not wear glasses, the electronic device may proceed with operation 630.

[0050] In operation 630, the electronic device may display a UI including an object of which the size is changed from the first size to the second size. For example, referring to FIG. 6B, the electronic device may display a UI 600e including the rewind button 212a, the pause button 212b, the stop button 212c, and the fast-forward button 212d, which are enlarged by a predetermined rate. The rate may be a value set in advance in the electronic device, or may be a value designated by the user of the electronic device. The rate may be expressed as percentages (%) or a multiple (e.g., 1.5 times, 2 times, or 3 times).

[0051] FIGs. 7A and 7B are diagrams illustrating an operation of providing, by an electronic device, a UI on the basis of information associated with detected movement of an electronic device according to various embodiments. Some of the operations may be omitted or added depending on a method of implementing each of the operations illustrated in FIG. 7A, and the same operation may be repeatedly performed. Also, the mode of the electronic device described hereinafter (e.g., a normal mode, a walking mode, and a running mode) is merely a name arbitrarily designated for ease of description, and the scope of a right is not limited by the name.

[0052] Referring to FIG. 7A, in operation 720, the electronic device may measure the speed of movement of the electronic device using at least one sensor included in the electronic device. The speed of the movement of the electronic device may be measured using various methods depending on implementation. As an example, the electronic device may measure the location of the electronic device using a GPS included in the electronic device, and may measure the speed of the movement of the electronic device on the basis of the distance that the electronic device moves during a predetermined period of time. As another example, the electronic device may measure the tilt, rotation, and/or movement speed of the electronic device using at least one of a gravity sensor, a gyro sensor, and an acceleration sensor.

[0053] The electronic device may measure the degree of movement of the electronic device, in addition to the speed of movement of the electronic device. For example, the electronic device may measure the number of times that movement of the electronic device is detected (e.g., 5 times, 10 times, or 10 times) during a predetermined period of time (e.g., 3 seconds, 5 seconds, or 10 seconds) using the at least one sensor. The electronic device may measure the speed of movement (or the degree of movement) of the electronic device, and may determine whether a user does not move (normal mode), whether the user is walking (walking mode), and whether the user is running (running mode).

[0054] In operation 730, the electronic device may determine whether the measured speed is greater than or equal to a first speed threshold value. The first speed threshold value may vary depending on implementation. For example, the first speed threshold value may be a value set in advance in the electronic device (a default value). As another example, the first speed threshold value may be arbitrarily set by the user of the electronic device. As another example, the first speed threshold value may be a value updated by taking into consideration the gender, age, the medical history of the user stored in advance. For example, the first speed threshold value may be set to the normal speed of an adult male when walking (e.g., 6∼8km/h or 100 times per minute, which is the number of times that movement is made during a minute). As another example, when information associated with a certain disease (e.g., arthritis) of the user of the electronic device is input to the electronic device, the first speed threshold value may be updated to a lower value (e.g., 2∼3km/h or 5 times per minute, which is the number of times that movement is made during a minute) in consideration of the context which the user is in. When it is determined that the measured speed is less than the first speed threshold value, the electronic device may proceed with operation 740. When it is determined that the measured speed is greater than or equal to the first speed threshold value, the electronic device may proceed with operation 750.

[0055] In operation 740, the electronic device may determine that the electronic device is in the normal mode. For example, referring to FIG. 7B, as illustrated in diagram 700a, the electronic device may determine that the user is not moving. In this instance, the electronic device terminates an algorithm, and may display a UI 700b in which the sizes of previously displayed objects are maintained as they were.

[0056] In operation 750, the electronic device may determine whether the measured speed is greater than or equal to a second speed threshold value. The second speed threshold value may be set using various methods according to a similar principal as that of the first speed threshold value. In other words, the second speed threshold value may be a value set in advance, a value arbitrarily designated by a user, or a value updated on the basis of user information stored in advance. For example, the second speed threshold value may be set to the normal speed of an adult male when running (e.g., 8km or more/h or 150 times per minute, which is the number of times that movement is made during a minute). When it is determined that the measured speed is less than the second speed threshold value, the electronic device may proceed with operation 760. When it is determined that the measured speed is greater than or equal to the second speed threshold value, the electronic device may proceed with operation 780.

[0057] In operation 760, the electronic device may determine that the electronic device is in the walking mode. For example, referring to FIG. 7B, as illustrated in diagram 700c, the electronic device may determine that the user is walking at a constant speed. In this instance, the electronic device may display a UI including an object of which the size is changed from the first size to the second size according to a predetermined rate in operation 770. For example, the electronic device may display a UI 700d including the rewind button 212a, the pause button 212b, the stop button 212c, and the fast-forward button 212d, of which the sizes are enlarged to be larger than the sizes of objects displayed in the normal mode. The rate may vary depending on implementation. The rate may be a value set in advance in the electronic device, or may be a value designated by the user of the electronic device. The rate may be expressed as percentages or a multiple (e.g., 1.5 times, 2 times, or 3 times).

[0058] In operation 780, the electronic device may determine that the electronic device is in the running mode. For example, referring to FIG. 7B, as illustrated in diagram 700e, the electronic device may determine that the user is running at a constant speed. In this instance, the electronic device may display a UI including an object of which the size is changed from the first size to a third size, which is a predetermined rate greater than the second size, in operation 790. For example, as illustrated in FIG. 7B, the electronic device may display a UI 700f including the rewind button 212a, the pause button 212b, the stop button 212c, and the fast-forward button 212d, of which the sizes are enlarged to be larger than the sizes of objects displayed in the walking mode. The rate may vary depending on implementation. The rate may be a value set in advance in the electronic device, or may be a value designated by the user of the electronic device. The rate may be expressed as percentages or a multiple.

[0059] FIG. 8 is a diagram illustrating an operation of providing, by an electronic device, a UI in response to detecting entry into a vehicle according to an embodiment. Some of the operations may be omitted or added depending on a method of implementing each of the operations illustrated in FIG. 8, and the same operation may be repeatedly performed.

[0060] Referring to FIG. 8, in operation 840, an electronic device 810 may display a UI including an object having a first size. For example, when a music application runs in the electronic device, the object may be an album image of a predetermined artist, a play button, a pause button, a stop button, a rewind button, a fast-forward button, a repeat button, a random button, and the like.

[0061] In operation 845, the electronic device 810 may receive a beacon signal from a beacon device 820. The electronic device 810 may receive a beacon signal from the beacon device 820 via various communication schemes. For example, the beacon device 820 may broadcast fixed information included in a packet to the electronic device 810. The fixed information may include various pieces of information. For example, the beacon signal may include an identifier of the beacon device 820.

[0062] In operation 850, the electronic device 810 may determine that the electronic device 810 enters a vehicle on the basis of the received beacon signal. For example, the electronic device 810 may identify a vehicle system 830 of the vehicle where the electronic device 810 is located, on the basis of identification information included in the beacon signal. The vehicle system 830 may be a device embedded in the vehicle, or may be an external device that is wiredly or wirelessly connected to the vehicle.

[0063] In operation 855, the electronic device 810 may display a UI including an object of which the size is changed from the first size to a second size according to a predetermined rate on the basis of information stored in advance. The information stored in advance may be one or more pieces of information from among heatmap information indicating the input frequency value of a user input, heatmap information indicating the input frequency value of a user input detected beyond a region of the object, or information associated with the user of the electronic device 810 (e.g., the eyesight information of the user). The rate may be a value set in advance in the electronic device 810, a value arbitrarily designated by the user of the electronic device 810, or may be information updated on the basis of information associated with the user. FIG. 8 illustrates an operation of displaying a UI including an object of which the size is automatically changed from the first size to the second size in response to the reception of a beacon signal by the electronic device 810. However, depending on implementation, the electronic device 810 may display a new UI in order to identify whether to display the UI including the object of which the size is changed to the second size. In this instance, the electronic device 810 may display the UI including the object of which the size is changed to the second size, in response to a user input to select displaying the UI including the object of which the size is changed to the second size.

[0064] In operation 860, the electronic device 810 may establish a communication link with the vehicle system 830 in order to share information associated with an application that is running in the electronic device 810 with the vehicle system 830. For example, the electronic device 810 may establish a communication link with the vehicle system 830 via the communication standard such as wireless fidelity direct (Wi-Fi direct), an infrared ray (IR), Bluetooth, Zigbee, Z-wave, visible light communication (VLC), 3G, LTE, 5G and the like.

[0065] In operation 865, the electronic device 810 may transmit the information associated with the application that is running in the electronic device 810 to the vehicle system 830 via the established wireless communication link. The information associated with the application may include information associated with the UI of the application displayed in the electronic device 810 and information associated with size enlargement of objects included in the UI.

[0066] In operation 870, the vehicle system 830 may display the UI displayed in the electronic device 810 on the basis of information received from the electronic device 810. For example, when a music application is running in the electronic device 810, the vehicle system 830 may display a UI including objects such as a play button, a pause button, a stop button, a rewind button, a fast-forward button, a repeat button, a random button and the like. For the convenience of a user who is driving, the objects may be displayed in enlarged sizes.

[0067] FIG. 9 is a diagram illustrating an operation of providing, by an electronic device, a UI in response to detecting entry into a vehicle according to another embodiment. Some of the operations may be omitted or added depending on a method of implementing each of the operations illustrated in FIG. 9, and the same operation may be repeatedly performed.

[0068] Referring to FIG. 9, an electronic device 910 displays a UI including an object having a first size in operation 930. For example, when a music application runs in the electronic device, the object may be an album image of a certain artist, a play button, a pause button, a stop button, a rewind button, a fast-forward button, a repeat button, a random button, and the like.

[0069] In operation 940, the electronic device 910 may detect a communication event with a vehicle system 920. For example, the electronic device 910 may identify that the electronic device 910 is capable of communicating with the vehicle system 920 via the communication standard such as WiFi direct, IR, near field communication (NFC), Bluetooth, Zigbee, Z-wave, VLC, 3G, LTE, and 5G. The vehicle system 920 may be a device embedded in the vehicle, or may be an external device that is wiredly or wirelessly connected to the vehicle.

[0070] In operation 950, on the basis of the detected communication event, the electronic device 910 may determine that the electronic device 910 enters a vehicle including the vehicle system 920. In operation 960, the electronic device 910 may display a UI including an object of which the size is changed from the first size to a second size according to a predetermined rate on the basis of information stored in advance. FIG. 9 illustrates an operation of displaying a UI including an object of which the size is automatically changed from the first size to the second size in response to the reception of a beacon signal by the electronic device 910. However, depending on implementation, the electronic device 910 may display a new UI in order to determine whether to display the UI including the object of which the size is changed to the second size. In this instance, the electronic device 910 may display the UI including the object of which the size is changed to the second size, in response to a user input to select displaying the UI including the object of which the size is changed to the second size.

[0071] In operation 970, the electronic device 910 may transmit information associated with an application that is running in the electronic device 910 in order to share the information associated with the application with the vehicle system 920. The information associated with the application may include an identifier of the application, and information used for enlarging the first size to the second size (e.g., heatmap information, enlargement rate, or the like).

[0072] In operation 980, the vehicle system 920 may display the UI displayed in the electronic device 910 on the basis of the information associated with the application received from the electronic device 910. For example, when the music application is running in the electronic device 910, the vehicle system 920 may display a UI including objects such as a play button, a pause button, a stop button, a rewind button, a fast-forward button, a repeat button, a random button and the like. The objects may be displayed in enlarged sizes.

[0073] FIG. 10 is a diagram illustrating an operation of displaying a UI including an enlarged object according to various embodiments.

[0074] Referring to FIG. 10, an electronic device may display a UI 1000a associated with an application running in the electronic device when the electronic device is in a normal situation (i.e., in the normal mode). For example, when an application that is running in the electronic device is a music application, the electronic device may display a UI including an image or input buttons of which the sizes are not enlarged.

[0075] In response to detection of movement of the electronic device, the electronic device may display a UI 1010 to overlap the display UI 1000a, in order to determine whether to change to an enlargement mode. The enlargement mode may include one from among a mode of enlarging the sizes of some objects on the basis of heatmap information, a mode of enlarging the sizes of some objects on the basis of a level corresponding to each object, and a mode of enlarging the sizes of corresponding objects on the basis of an input sensed beyond the region of each object. The detected movement may include one from among a movement speed of the electronic device, a facial image, information associated with whether a user wears glasses, and information associated with whether the electronic device enters a vehicle. The UI 1010 may include selection buttons 1012 and 1014. When a user input is detected from the selection button 1012 indicating "YES", the electronic device may display a UI 1000c in which the size of each object is enlarged. When a user input is detected from the selection button 1014 indicating "NO", the electronic device may maintain the previously displayed UI 1000a.

[0076] As described above, an operation method of an electronic device that provides a user interface may include: displaying a UI including an object which has a first size and is used for executing at least one function of an application running in the electronic device; storing information indicating the frequency of a user input detected from the object; detecting movement of the electronic device on the basis of data obtained via a sensor of the electronic device; and displaying a UI including the object, of which the size is changed from a first size to a second size in the UI on the basis of the information indicating the input frequency. The operation of storing the information indicating the input frequency may include: determining the input frequency value of a user input detected within the region of the object; and storing heatmap information associated with an input frequency related to the object, on the basis of the determined input frequency value.

[0077] According to an embodiment, the operation of displaying the UI including the object of which the size is changed from the first size to the second size may include: identifying whether the input frequency value of the object is greater than or equal to a predetermined reference frequency value; and when the input frequency value of the object is greater than or equal to the predetermined reference frequency value, displaying the UI including the object of which the size is changed from the first size to the second size.

[0078] According to another embodiment, the operation of displaying the UI including the object of which the size is changed from the first size to the second size may include: determining a level corresponding to the input frequency value of the object; and displaying a UI including the object of which the size is changed from the first size to the second size or a third size according to the level of the object, wherein the third size is greater than the second size, and the second size is greater than the first size.

[0079] According to an embodiment, the operation of storing the information indicating the input frequency may include: determining a user input detected beyond the region of the object, to be an incorrect input; and storing heatmap information associated with the incorrect input in the electronic device. The operation of displaying the UI including the object of which the size is changed from the first size to the second size may further include displaying a UI including the object of which a shape is changed on the basis of the incorrect input, on the basis of the detected movement and the frequency value of the incorrect input.

[0080] The method may further include displaying a UI including the object, of which the size is changed from the first size to the second size in the UI on the basis of the detected movement and information stored in advance in the electronic device, wherein the information stored in advance may include at least one from among size enlargement information set in advance in the electronic device, and information associated with an age, gender, eyesight, and medical history of a user of the electronic device.

[0081] According to an embodiment, the method may further include: obtaining a facial image of the user using an image sensor included in the electronic device when the eyesight of the user of the electronic device is less than a predetermined eyesight reference value; and identifying whether the user wears glasses on the basis of the obtained facial image, and the operation of displaying the UI including the object of which the size is changed from the first size to the second size may include displaying the UI including the object of which the size is changed from the first size to the second size when it is identified that the user does not wear glasses. According to an embodiment, the operation of detecting movement of the electronic device may include: measuring a speed at which the electronic device moves using a sensor included in the electronic device; and determining that the electronic device is in the normal mode when the measured speed is less than a predetermined first speed threshold value, determining that the electronic device is in the walking mode when the measured speed is greater than or equal to the first speed threshold value and less than a predetermined second speed threshold value, and determining that the electronic device is the running mode when the measured speed is greater than the second speed threshold value. The operation of displaying a UI including the object, of which the size is changed from the first size to the second size in the UI, may include: displaying the UI including the object of which the size is changed from the first size to the second size when the electronic device is in the walking mode; and displaying a UI including the object of which the size is changed from the first size to a third size when the electronic device is the running mode, wherein the third size is greater than the second size, and the second size is greater than the first size. According to another embodiment, the operation of detecting movement of the electronic device may include: identifying that the electronic device enters a vehicle. The operation of identifying that the electronic device enters the vehicle may include: receiving a beacon signal of a beacon installed in the vehicle, and identifying that the electronic device enters the vehicle; and performing near-field communication with a vehicle system installed in the vehicle, and identifying that the electronic device enters the vehicle.

[0082] FIG. 11 is a diagram illustrating a network environment including an electronic device according to various embodiments.

[0083] Referring to FIG. 11, an electronic device 1101 may include a bus 1110, a processor 1120, a memory 1130, an input/output interface 1150, a display 1160, and a communication interface 1170. According to an embodiment, the electronic device 1101 may omit at least one of the above components or may further include other components.

[0084] The bus 1110 may include a circuit that interconnects the components 1110 to 1170 and deliver communication (e.g., control messages and/or data) between the components. The processor 1120 may include one or more of a central processing unit (CPU), an application processor (AP), and a communication processor (CP). For example, the processor 1120 may execute calculation or data processing related to control and/or communication of at least one other component of the electronic device 1101.

[0085] The memory 1130 may include a volatile memory and/or a non-volatile memory. For example, the memory 1130 may store instructions or data relevant to at least one other component of the electronic device 1101. According to an embodiment, the memory 1130 may store software and/or a program 1140. The program 1140 may include, for example, a kernel 1141, middleware 1143, an application programming interface (API) 1145, and/or application programs (or "applications") 1147. At least some of the kernel 1141, the middleware 1143, and the API 1145 may be referred to as an operating system.
