Paper Abstract

We show an optoelectronic implementation assistant that will be used by handicapped people. The system works with the head gesture movements of the user. These movements are vectorized with an IR spotlight that is detected by four optocoupled detectors. The information is interpreted and sent to the PC by the serial port. This implementation could be used as a powerful tool between man-machine interaction.
