recognition questions
« on: January 30, 2010, 01:43:51 PM »
 ???first is there a software on the computer where through the webcam it  can recognise your face and then say hello/ hi how are you today? that would be a real help.
also if i make this robot which incorporates my computer to work it. is there a software which would recognise hand gestures and gestures. such as pointing in a direction and the robot goes there and waving it waves back. also going even more advanced be able to detect a sad face/crying :'( and say why are you sad.
thanks in advance (hopefully) ;) :P
-snooza ::)

so work has been done on recognising a specific face as a security feature. the computer won't unlock unless it recognises the user.
unfortunately all these systems can be defeated with a photograph of the correct user.
start reading here: http://www.face-rec.org/

OpenCV has face detection libraries if you just want to compile some code that can tell where a face is in an image.

a project i've always thought about (but never got round to doing anything about) is have a webcam watch which direction your eyes are pointing and use that as a mouse input.
maybe a wink could be the equivalent of a button press.


dunk.
