Virtual Keyboard Interaction with System Based on Webcam

Authors(4) :-Dr. S. Bhuvana, E. Ashwin, R. Boopathi, A. Danish Victor

As the technology advances, more and more systems are introduced in market which will look after the users comfort. Few years before hard switches were used as keys. Traditional QWERTY keyboards are bulky and offer very little in terms of advancements. Now-a-days soft touch keypads are much popular in the market. These keypads give an elegant look and feel better. Currently keyboards are static and their interactivity and usage would increase if they were made dynamic and adaptable. Various on-screen virtual keyboards are available but it is difficult to accommodate full sized keyboard on the screen to see the documents being typed. Virtual Keyboard has no physical appearance. The Virtual Keyboard that uses only a standard web camera, with no other additional hardware. Thus the new technology always has more Benefits and is more user-friendly.
