I wanted to work on a project involving image processing to help increase the amount of ways that we can interact with our computers.
What it does
This program uses image recognition to determine your hand position and gestures to interact with your computer.
How I built it
Cam Mouse is built using python and opencv. It utilizes deep learning algorithms to detect a hand and determine the number of separate fingers on the hand as a rudimentary gesture system.
Challenges I ran into
Working with new software such as opencv and libraries such as dlib
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
Getting this project working after changing ideas multiple times.
What I learned
opencv, image processing, and deep learning
What's next for Cam Mouse
Implement more ways to interact, such as facial recognition, eye tracking, and blink recognition.
