i used a code to detect color where i can only detec red,green or blue color using "imsubtract(data(:,:,1),rgb2grey(data))" command... then i applied robaot java class for mouse pointer movement relative to cordinates of the color.... the mouse pointer moves and also clicks, but the problems i faced are..... 1) i dont know how the clicking operation is being executed.... does it executes when pointer is stable on a folder for some specified time or when another color is detected by the system?...... 2) if i move my hand to right , the pointer moves left and vice versa..... how to reverse that....... 3)if the camera resolution is less than the resolution of the screen, whole screen is not covered with this system.... how to eliminate this?..... 4)if i want to detect two different colors and execute clicking operations by manipulating the distance between the colors, how can i do that..?? please help...

% Capture the video frames using the videoinput function
% You have to replace the resolution & your installed adaptor name.
vid = videoinput('winvideo',1,'RGB24_640x480');

% Set the properties of the video object
set(vid, 'FramesPerTrigger', Inf);
set(vid, 'ReturnedColorspace', 'rgb')
vid.FrameGrabInterval = 5;

%start the video aquisition here

% Set a loop that stop after 100 frames of aquisition

% Get the snapshot of the current frame
data = getsnapshot(vid);

% Now to track red objects in real time
% we have to subtract the red component
% from the grayscale image to extract the red components in the image.
diff_im = imsubtract(data(:,:,1), rgb2gray(data));
%Use a median filter to filter out noise
diff_im = medfilt2(diff_im, [3 3]);
% Convert the resulting grayscale image into a binary image.
diff_im = im2bw(diff_im,0.18);

% Remove all those pixels less than 300px
diff_im = bwareaopen(diff_im,300);

% Label all the connected components in the image.
bw = bwlabel(diff_im, 8);

% Here we do the image blob analysis.
% We get a set of properties for each labeled region.
stats = regionprops(bw, 'BoundingBox', 'Centroid');

% Display the image

hold on

%This is a loop to bound the red objects in a rectangular box.
for object = 1:length(stats)
bb = stats(object).BoundingBox;
bc = stats(object).Centroid;
plot(bc(1),bc(2), '-m+')
a=text(bc(1)+15,bc(2), strcat('X: ', num2str(round(bc(1))), ' Y: ', num2str(round(bc(2)))));
set(a, 'FontName', 'Arial', 'FontWeight', 'bold', 'FontSize', 12, 'Color', 'yellow');
import java.awt.Robot;
import java.awt.event.*;
mouse = Robot;
mouse.mouseMove(bc(1), bc(2));

hold off
