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
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
