Face Tracking – OpenCV + Arduino

A face tracking project based on a face recognition system (based on OpenCV) and a tracking system based on Arduino and servos. OpenCV captures video from a webcam and uses a ready-made OpenCV algorithm for face detection. If a face is detected, the system starts tracking it (the (X, Y) coordinates of its center are calculated and transmitted to the Arduino via the serial port (USB)). The Arduino controller controls the movement of the webcam using two servos (pan/tilt).

And here is a similar project, only the OpenCV wrapper in Processing is used.
Only this time, the face is tracked with a laser sight 🙂
