Face detection and tracking with Arduino and OpenCV

by Bart Pelgrims on January 30, 2013

face detection and trackingInstructables user techbitar created a face detection and tracking system using Open Computer Vision (OpenCV).

Basically, the webcam sends video frames to OpenCV running on a Windows PC. If OpenCV detects a face it will track it and calculate its center’s X,Y coordinates. The coordinates are then passed on to the Arduino via a serial USB connection. The Arduino controls the movement of the webcam with the help of two pan/tilt servos to follow the detected face.
