Abstract
In recent years, new methods and models of Human Computer Interaction application are being developed. They are based on interaction with computer through head, eyes, facial expression, hand movements, voice recognition etc. Here we present a human computer interaction application that eases difficulties for differently abled people to control the mouse cursor of a computer through a camera. No wearables or no biosensor-based devices are needed. The main idea is based on facial landmark localization, calculating geometric ratios while opening and closing of the eyes and mouth, using them to control the mouse cursor in real time. Concept of eye aspect ratio in the case of eyes and mouth aspect ratio in the case of mouth has been used for checking whether that particular mouse operation is being performed or not. This will help people suffering from Quadriplegia, Multiple Sclerosis, Cerebral Palsy or other types of temporary or permanent accidental injuries that generally affects limb (arms or legs) movements.
