Abstract : A recent development in growing computer environments has resulted in a push for the development of more intuitive forms of human-computer interaction method [HCI]. The aim of this research is to investigate a new approach for controlling the mouse movements using a real-time camera. Instead of changing or adding mouse parts, a method where access to the mouse/cursor by hand gestures with colored tapes can be enabled. It tries to use a camera and computer vision technologies such as gesture recognition and image segmentation to control mouse tasks with colored tapes and shows how it can perform all the mouse functions a current mouse device can. In the first phase, hand gestures are acquired using a camera based on colour detection technique using segmentation and image subtraction algorithm.In the second phase, RGB colored tapes are used to control different functions of the mouse and also the combination of these 3 colors by considering the area of each object/colored tape using the blob analysis and the bounding box algorithm. The user must wear the red, green and blue tapes to the fingers such that it is easy to make the movements for each tape and also the combination of the colored tapes to acquire the desired output of the cursor movement in the system. © Research India Publications.
