Computers are equipped with a mouse to control the movement of the cursor. The mouse permits a computer user to position and move a cursor on a computer screen without having to use a keyboard. A conventional mouse includes a small blocked shaped casing with a flat bottom designed to be gripped by one hand. Inside the mouse there is a ball which rolls on a surface or mouse pad. A mouse pad is a flat pad like structure made of foam or latex material having approximately the same proportions as the computer display. The top surface of the mouse pad is textured so that the multi directional detecting component is moved when the mouse is moved across the mouse pact. The ball is coupled to optical chopper wheels within the mouse housing which respond to movement of the mouse to produce pulses of light representing mouse movement. The mouse has a movement detector which detects movement in the directions of X and Y axes, and a button push detector which detects a button push. Sensors detect the ball's movement and generate electronic signals that enable the computer to convert the ball's movement into cursor control. A cable connects the mouse to the computer. When the mouse is moved over a flat surface, it generates signals which control the position of a cursor or pointer on a graphical user interface shown on the computer display. An optical mouse comprises an image sensor for sensing an image of a motion and outputting the resulting image signal, an A/D converter for converting the image signal from the image sensor into digital data, an image processor for performing a signal processing operation for the digital data from the A/D converter to detect the motion therefrom, and a controller for providing data corresponding to the detected motion to a computer. Wireless mouse are gradually replacing wired mouse because of its convenient usability. The wireless computer mouse is generally energized by battery and communicates through infrared transmission or radio frequency transmission to realize wireless operation.
