Summary

A software for camera-projector interaction was developed by Juan Roldan, Ushakiran

Soutapalli, Julien Faucher, and Jan Wedekind at the Microsystem & Machine Vision Laboratory

 (MMVL) at Sheffield Hallam University, UK. The software makes use of a low cost off-the

shelf webcam that is calibrated against a standard projector screen. The webcam is used to

determine the position of physical pointer (e.g. a pen) which is then used to virtually move

the X11 pointer. Point-and-click functionality has also been implemented. The vision system

uses the Mimas real-time computer vision toolkit developed by the MMVL. The wizard allows

you to take a reference picture showing the pointer. You then have to select the region in

the image for generating a reference histogram. If you are using a projector, make sure that

the desktop has a bright background. Otherwise the pointer will be illuminated differently

and it will not be recognized any more. Author ————— Juan Roldan
