Abstract 

The purpose of the present paper is to show the use of artificial vision techniques with a infrared web cam for two applications for disable people. The first application is the move of the computer cursor through eye movement using artificial vision techniques. The tool has created great benefits for people with reduced capabilities. Offering the opportunity to interact with the outside world and thus, increasing their self-esteem. Providing the maximum functionality possible in spite of the injury they have suffered. The second application is a system that controls a rover movement using an artificial vision system. The control is done by a finger motion. The system is designed with a master-slave scheme. Both systems provide a solution for persons who cannot use their body parts to drive wheelchairs. The study affirms the usefulness of artificial vision techniques to develop tools that can improve the human being quality of life.
