FaceAccess – Portable Face Recognition

Brian writes

For our senior ECE design at Cornell, my partner and I created a portable face recognition system.  To our knowledge, it’s the first face recognition system on a microcontroller.  You enroll with one button and log in with another.  You can build our system for about $30 and then use it to control access to anything:  a safe, a door, or the beer fridge.  In our demo video, we just output to an LCD for feedback instead of actually controlling access to something.  See the website I provided for more detail.

This was a final project for Cornell’s ECE 4760 (Designing with Microcontrollers). This is a senior design course. There are a bunch of other cool hack/gadget projects from other groups, which you can browse here.

One of the best thing about the yearly Cornell projects is they’re all documented, source code is posted, everything – fantastic work!
