What is i-Mouse?• ‘i-Mouse’ is the equivalent of the conventional computer mouse but it is entirely controlled by Eyes.• The i-Mouse offers people with extreme disabilities the opportunity to control a computer simply by moving his or her eyes or head.
Benefits of i-Mouse• Low System Requirements• Low cost• High compatibility• User friendly• Application useful for handicapped people• Easier computer control
Literature Survey• Related concepts: – HCI (Human Computer Interface) – Gesture Recognition• Literature Study: – Face Detection - Color Based – Face Tracking, Extraction and Motion Detection - Head Motion - Command Detection - Eyeball Motion Based
Existing SystemThe Headmaster User The EagleEyes User Facial Mouse Depiction
Proposed System• Hand Free Cursor Control System - Locating Human face and eyes - Facial movement and eye recognition - Calculating Line of sight for eyes - Movement of mouse pointer using interfacing of human biometrics and computer system

Architectural DesignTwo layers constitute the basic structure of i-Mouseviz. Tracking Layer and Client layer.• Tracking Layer – Input: Sequence of Real Images. – Purpose: To provide a face tracker robust enough to be usable in visible noisy environments.• Client Layer – Purpose: To provide the necessary level of abstraction over Tracking layer. – This subsystem makes available the GUI.
System Requirements Software Hardware Requirements Requirements Operating System – Processor – Intel Windows XP Pentium P4 IDE – Eclipse 3.4 Motherboard – (Min) Genuine Intel Technology Used – RAM - At least 1 GB Java Tools Used - JDK Hard Disk – 80GB
Conclusion• The motivation behind developing i-Mouse is that it facilitates the hands free cursor control which reduces the dependency on the typical mouse.• The project aims at providing a means of cursor control to disabled people and a new and interactive option to the existing users.
Future Scope• Need for the System• Identification of product project• Identification of project deliverables – External deliverables – Internal deliverables
