Hey all, just put the finishing touches on the “Facial Recognition With Raspberry Pi and OpenCV” guide.
This guide will show you exactly how to have your Raspberry Pi credit-card-sized computer be able to spot human faces, how to train it to know your face, and run code so that it will successfully identify you when it sees you. Then I’ll take it another step and show you how you can use your face to control a servo attached to the Raspberry Pi 4 Model B. Literally use your face to control the GPIO!
This is possible thanks to two excellent open-source projects. These are OpenCV which provides a huge free resource to solve real-time computer vision problems and the Python Face Recognition Package which computes bounding boxes around a face in real-time. There is just so much potential with this software to take projects to amazing places.
