Abstract

This paper presents a method for real-time detection and tracking of the human face. This is achieved using the Raspberry Pi microcomputer and the Easylab microcontroller as the main hardware with a camera mounted on servomotors for continuous image feed-in. Real-time face detection is performed using Haar-feature classifiers and ScicosLab in the Raspberry Pi. Then, the Easylab is responsible for face tracking, keeping the face in the middle of the frame through a pair of servomotors that control the horizontal and vertical movements of the camera. The servomotors are in turn controlled based on the state-diagrams designed using SMCube in the EasyLab. The methodology is verified via practical experimentation.
