Firstly for this section of the project I’d like to give a quick thanks to two enthusasts without whom I probably wouldnt have gotten this far. They are:
Both of these individuals have provided work for face detection on the raspberry pi using the camera board and whose work has been incredibly helpful in producing the system for this project.
Following on from my last post git should be installed on the pi and a new folder called “git” should have been made in the home directory. Firstly navigate to the new folder
Now we need to install some libaries, first up is the userland libary – this is used to control the camera.
mkdir -p raspberrypi
That should have installed all of the userland libaries, next we need to install the raspicam libary which allows us to control the camera in C++.
With that we should now be able to control the raspberry pi’s camera board from C++. Now we need to add my code to allow us to detect faces and what not.
git clone https://github.com/NeoMopp/emobot.git
Now with that done we just need to build and run my code to let us detect faces.
