Projection of a Moving Point on a Line

Projections Bx and By of a point B moving along any curve (in green) on horizontal and vertical axes can be obtained thanks to a pantograph (for horizontal axis in this mechanism) or two slider mechanism (for vertical axis in this mechanism).
Length of blue bars: a + a.
Length of green bars: a.
The green curve is created by a slider crank mechanism (in grey).
