A Joystick-driven Mouse Controlling Method using Hand Gestures

PC users have long been controlling their computers using input devices such as mouse and keyboard. To improve inconveniences of these devices, the method of screen-touching has widely been used these days, and devices recognizing human gestures are being developed one after another. Fox example, Kinect, developed and distributed by Microsoft, is a non-contact input device that recognizes human gestures through motion-recognizing sensors, thus replacing the mouse as an input device. However, when controlling the mouse on a large screen, it suffers from the problem of requiring large motions in order to move the mouse pointer to the edges of the screen. In this paper, we propose a joystick-driven mouse-controlling method which enables the user to move the mouse pointer to the corners of the screen with small motions. The experimental results show that movements of the user`s palm within the range of 30 cm ensure movements of the mouse pointer to the edges of the screen.
