Project Content: 

Introduction:

In its finished form Project Stalker could be an interactive installation, a mixture between animatronics and computer vision. It will take the form of an security camera, which instead of a camera lens will have an eye-ball object. It will be rotatable and always following the faces it sees. That is the reason why the project is called Stalker.

Technology:

Version 2 Raspberry Pi

Software:

  • Raspbian Strech 4.19
  • OpenCV 3.2.0

Hardware:

The development of that version has reached the point of Object Tracking, but it is not fully functioning.

Version 1 Arduino

// Current stage of the code

There is a camera inside the eye object, which sends information to Processing,
The image after that is being processed with OpenCV and the face of the person is being tracked. The eye’s rotation on the horizontal and vertical axis is being controlled by 2 servo motors, which are attached to an Arduino board or a Raspberry Pi.
