Move a mouse with its head

Hello everyone
Let me introduce myself, my name is Stéphane, I am quadriplegic, that is to say that I am paralyzed in all four limbs. My disability therefore prevents me from being able to use a computer like everyone else. Currently to be autonomous in computing, I use what is called a Tracker Pro.
To schematize the operation, it is a reflective pad which is placed on my forehead, on my computer the tracker is positioned like a webcam, but which captures infrared. When I move my head the pad is in contact with the tracker and therefore moves the mouse cursor.

This system works very well the problem is that it is no longer developed! So I’m afraid that mine will break down and I’ll end up with nothing. So I try to anticipate things and be able to try to create my own tracker!

So my question is: is it possible to build this system with ArduCam?
I remain at your disposal for further information.
Thanks in advance



This requires buying the noir version.

For your needs, you can also try the AI camera: oak

This camera supports the use of trained models

Anyway, I’m not a salesperson, I’m just telling you one possibility.
If you need to buy a camera, you can contact [email protected]

what do you mean ? sorry i speak very bad englis


NoIR = No Infrared filter.

This allows you to receive infrared.

Which version do you recommend? Knowing that I would like to create this system with Arduino, if possible.


For details, you may need to contact ([email protected]) . You can ask if they have NOIR lenses for spi cameras.

But I want to remind you that we don’t have software support, if you want to develop, you need to implement the function yourself.


I just asked them.

This need to order filter if you use Arduino.

I want to correct what I said earlier.
Depending on your needs, the easiest way is to use a lens that only accepts IR.

Can you give me camera examples please?
Sorry to ask you all this, but I don’t want to make any mistakes when buying


You can look at these two parts.
mega is about to be released, and the next one is already released.
