This project describes the motivation and design considerations of an economical head operated surveillance camera for people with disabilities. In addition, it focuses on the invention of a head-set operated device to control the movement of the camera, such that the camera can turn left and right according to the movement of the human head. It employs one tilt sensor, which placed in the headset to determine head position and to function as simple headset control system. The tilt sensor detects the lateral head motion to drive the left or right displacement of the camera. This system was invented to assist people with disabilities to live an independent life or even allow them to work as security personnel to earn their life. The idea can be employed in other application such as robotics, intelligent home devices and vehicle control as well.
