Abstract

Mobile devices become smaller and more powerful with each generation distributed. Because of the tiny enclosures the interaction with such devices offers limited input capabilities. In contrast there are hardly any mobile phones purchasable that do not have a built-in camera. We developed a concept of an intuitive interaction technique using optical inertial tracking on mobile phones. The key of this concept is the user moving the mobile device which results in a moving video stream of the camera. The direction of the movement can be calculated with a suitable algorithm. This paper outlines the algorithm Projection Shift Analysis developed to run on mobile phones.
