WEBCAM-BASED LASER DOT DETECTION TECHNIQUE IN COMPUTER REMOTE CONTROL
In this paper, the authors propose a method to detect the laser dot in an interactive system using laser pointers. The method is designed for presenters who need to interact with the computer during the presentation by using the laserpointer. The detection technique is developed by using a camera to capture the presentation screen and processing every frames transferred to the ara computer. This paper focuses on the detection and tracking of laser dots, based on their characteristics to distinguish a laser dotfrom other areas on the captured frames. Experimental results showed that the proposed method could reduce the rate of misdetection by light noises of a factor of 10 and achieve an average accuracy of 82% of detection in normal presentation environments. The results point out that the better way to describe the laser dots’ features based on visual concept is to use the HSI color space instead of the normal RGB space.
