    Hello everyone,

    Need some help...

    I need a camera or a component that whenever it detects a face (no matter whose) it signals to the microcontroller and maybe even sends some details about the face (location on the frame, face width etc).
    Of course it's important that it works with a microcontroller.

    I need somthing not too expensive but reliable...

    Thanks!!

    What you are looking for is technically termed "a miracle".

    In cameras it is done using a very powerful image processing chip. The chance of getting your hands on one with enough documentation to use it are possibly also in the realm of miracles.

    Hey steve,

    So what are saying? That it is not possible for me, in any way, to alarm my microcontroller when a face apears??

    Thanks

    For the software part you could, for example, use opencv or openface.
    You'll need a reasonably powerful microcontroller such as a raspberry or more powerful.
    A typical microcontroller of e.g. the arduino class will imho not have enough computing power.
