Abstract: This paper describes about an economical head operated computer mouse for people with disabilities. It focuses on the invention of a head operated computer mouse that employs one tilt sensor placed in the headset to determine head position and to function as simple head-operated computer mouse. The system uses accelerometer based tilt sensor to detect the user's head tilt in order to direct the mouse movement on the computer screen. Clicking of mouse is activated by the user's eye brow movement through a sensor. The keyboard function is designed to allow the user to scroll letters with head tilt and with eye brow movement as the selection mechanism. Voice recognition section is also present in the head section to identify the small letters which are pronounced by the paralyzed user. This system was invented to assist people with disabilities to live an independent professional life.
