Abstract

This paper presents a new approach for controlling mouse movement and implementing mouse functions using a real-time camera. Most existing approaches involve changing mouse parts such as adding more but-tons or changing the position of the tracking ball. In-stead, we propose to change the hardware design. Our method is to use a camera, image comparison technology and motion detection technology to control mouse movement and implement its functions (right click, left click, scrolling and double click).
