IR Motion Tracking as a Standard Input Device

  • Michael Cimolini


As our computing needs change and the availability of advanced input systems begin to increase we find that we are coming to the point where current interfaces are beginning to become outdated. Touch interfaces are becoming abundant, but there is only so much that one can do with a 2D input. This project tries to show that there is a potential for IR based interface systems to replace standard mouse input in current as well as future interfaces. Our results show that both the accuracy and robustness of the IR system designed herein are equivalent to that of standard mouse input.
