Detailed Description

Updates of application screen location and mouse cursor coordinates.

Without accurate information about the location and extent of the desktop screen, the next step, the computation of the mouse cursor coordinates would be impossible. This class provides method updateASPD() in order to update the geometric information about the location of the desktop screen in case the ASPD changed its position and/or orientation.


Transformation from world CS to target application screen plane

Geometric transformations applied to compute the spatial desktop screen location starting from the world (tracking) coordinate system origin and its correlations with the data gained in the calibration routine from the user-marked screen corner positions (1), (2), (3) and (4). $\phi$ determines the orientation difference of the ASPD to the world coordination system. The positional vector $ w$ directs from the application screen coordinate system origin to the screen root position, per definition the top left corner of the screen. The vectors $ v_1$ and $ v_2$ span the extent of the screen plane. During operation mode the location of the screen plane must be recomputed if the position or orientation of the ASPD changes. If the new orientation angle is $\phi'$, the recomputation is established by rotating the position vectors $ w$ and $ v_1, v_2$ about the difference angle $\phi' - \phi$. These operations match vector transformations from one coordinate system (represented by $\phi$) to another coordinate system (represented by $\phi'$).

In order to compute 2D desktop mouse cursor coordinates from tracking data (the MPD) this class provides the updateMPD() method. OTQt defines a certain 3D volume located in front of the target desktop screen as mouse event sensible region. This region is called screen cuboid} (SC).


Screen Cuboid with Mouse Position Device (MPD) displayed as pen

The screen cuboid is spanned by the screen width $v_1$, screen height $v_2$ and screen depth $v_3$. $v_3$ is computed as dot product of $v_1 \times v_2$. The volume marks the mouse event sensitive region. That means: only while the MPD (displayed here as pen) actually intersects the screen coboid volume, the OTQt module will generate and post mouse events. In that case, the MPD position is converted into corresponding desktop coordinates and OTQt will post a MouseMove event to the Qt applicaton, whereupon the correct mouse cursor position is set.

Provides several methods to query the current MPD status: spatial 3D position with getMPD3DPosition(), desktop mouse coordinates with getMPD2DCoords(), and the location of the MPD relative to the screen cuboid can be retrieved with getMPDLocation().

) [static]

Wraps the geometric data elements from in the specified container into XML attribute strings.

Stores each attribute string in the provided key/value map.

void ot::QtAppScreen::convert ( CalibInputData const &  in,
CalibOutputData out 
) [static]

Converts raw tracking data acquired during the calibration routine into final geometric data that can be stored in as XML attributes in an OpenTracker configuration file.

The given input data collection contains the position of the four application desktop screen corners. The method derives the geometric relation (angle and distance) between the local application screen coordinate system (as defined by the APSD) and the screen plane (represented by screen root position) as well as the screen plane extent (width/height spanning vectors computed from the four screen corners).

Passes the computed data to the provided output object.
