Back to some drone posts! I was kind of busy during the last weeks and now I can get back to write about the drone.
OK, in the last posts I described how to connect and work with the drone camera feed using OpenCV. Now with 2 extra lines of code we can also detect faces. Let’s take a look at the final sample.
In the previous image we can see 2 camera feeds. My computer webcam, where you can see how I hold the drone with the drone camera pointing to my face. And the drone camera feed, presented using OpenCV and drawing a frame over each detected face.
Let’s share some code insights:
- As usual, I resize the camera feed to 320 x 240
- The average processing time is between 40 and 70 FPS
- I use a haar cascade classifier to detect the faces in each frame
Note: I need to write about Haar Cascades as part of my face detection post series.
In my next posts, I’ll add some drone specific behaviors for each face detected.
