The advancement and development of high resolution per frame cameras in recent years motivate both engineers and students in the research and creation of applications based on “automated” computer vision algorithms, a frequent task used in the tracking of object movements and position as well as its own characteristics, such as object shape, object color, etc.
In this case, the project is based on the tracking and recognition of faces, If it detects a face it focuses it within a red frame, if it recognizes it in a lower percentage the focus is within a yellow frame and if the percentage is high or very high it focuses it within a green frame.
Each Monday is ArduinoMonday here at Adafruit! Be sure to check out our posts, tutorials and new Arduino related products. Adafruit manufactures the Arduino right here in the United States in cooperation with arduino.cc. We have a huge selection of Arduino accessories and all the code and tutorials to get you up and running in no time!
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
