This paper is encompassed of mouse functions using LED based on the colour detection. The colour that comes from the LED will be detected by the web camera and produced a movement of the cursor and operation of the mouse on a computer. The colour of the image converted into Hue, Saturation, and Value (HSV) colour space to facilitate the colour detection process. From the HSV data, colour thresholding process is performed to get the produced colour from the LEDs after they have turned on. The threshold colour can perform a cursor movement and mouse operation after setting up the mouse function with the colour in the system. The result obtained shows that the LED colour devices more easily detected in the dark with an appropriate distance. The mouse control system using LED based on colour detection are successfully developed, and the expansion of this study in the future will be able to improve the detection process and the stability of the system in controlling the cursor movement.
