The project is designed to use a standard TV remote as a cordless mouse for computer. Using conventional-wired mouse becomes very tedious when the PC is used for presentation purposes (ie while using for a projector) or at distant (within room) place .

This proposed system facilitates cordless operation using a standard TV remote for all types of mouse-related functions,and thus, eliminates the need of being close to the PC/ laptop for  operating the  wired mouse.

A typical TV remote sends coded infrared data, which is readby theIR sensorinterfacedto the8051 familymicrocontroller. This data from the microcontroller goesto theCOM port of the PC through a level-shifter IC. The IR code is traditionally RC5 code, which isfollowed by some manufacturers.

A software named “PC remote” is used on PC that recognizes data received from microcontroller through COM port and performs required operation. The numbers on the TV remote are used to perform up, down, right, and leftcursor movement. The features like left click and right click of the mouse can also be performed bythe TV remote.

Furthermore, this project can be enhanced by using Bluetooth/ RF technology to overcome the traditional line of sight communication drawbacks of the infrared type.


The project works only on operating systems having hyper terminal (E.g. Windows XP). The computer must have a RS232 serial port.

Through Net I got to know about Edgefx where I was searching with keywords like microcontroller based projects, Electrical projects, Projects in the Google.After going through the feedback of the students I decided to buy from Edgefx. The most which I liked about the Kit and the report is that no where any Edgefx company Stickers or Logo is applied.The Kit was delivered on time with the right components where the CD provided along with kit was blank but I got good support from Edgefx and they have immediately mailed me the entire Report of the project. I would like to suggest you to improve the size of Zero Board provided since there will be more wires to be get soldered on the board and more chance of having short circuit.
