Face Recognition and Detecting series in Python
In my last post I share some lines of code which allowed me to run some of the face recognition demos 6 times faster. I added a Frames per Second (FPS) feature in my samples. Later, thinking about performance, I realize that I don’t need to work with a full HD picture (1920 x 1080), so I added some code to resize the photo before the face detection process.
However, while I was coding around this solution I also realized that I may want to initialize my camera to start in a lower resolution. So, I searched online on how to do this with OpenCV and I found 3 beautiful lines of code.
So, I manage to improve my processing code from 20FPS to +30FPS … which is very good ! Later on this posts I’ll try to do some similar FPS tests on a smaller device and I’ll see and share how this works.
