    Face-recognition program in Galileo IoT DevKit


      Hi everybody.


      I have the image IoT DevKit installed in my Galileo platform and I would like to write a program, it can be in python to do face recognition. I want my program works like that:

      There will be two folders: resources and results. Inside of resources I want another two folders (person1 and person2) and inside both I want to include pictures .jpg of faces.

      There will be a webcam connected in Galileo. So  I will stand in front of the camera in order it takes a picture of my face. I click in a button in my Galileo, then it will take a picture and verify if my face is inside of person1 or person2 folders and I want the program save the picture in results and give me a signal the person is in the system or not, for example printing in SSH terminal a message saying that and later I want to send this signal as 0 or 1 in an output to use in external circuits. The only program I have is to do face detection, take a look:


      import numpy as np

      import cv2


      # it starts the caputre

      capture = cv2.VideoCapture(0)

      # take the last received frame

      ret,img = capture.read()

      # save as pic.jpg


      cv2.imwrite('pic.jpg', img)






      face_cascade = cv2.CascadeClassifier('/home/root/haarcascade_frontalface_default.xml')

      eye_cascade = cv2.CascadeClassifier('/home/root/haarcascade_eye.xml')


      img = cv2.imread('pic.jpg')

      gray = cv2.cvtColor(img, cv2.COLOR_BGR2GRAY)

      faces = face_cascade.detectMultiScale(gray, 1.3, 5)

      for (x,y,w,h) in faces:


              roi_gray = gray[y:y+h, x:x+w]

              roi_color = img[y:y+h, x:x+w]

              eyes = eye_cascade.detectMultiScale(roi_gray)

              for (ex,ey,ew,eh) in eyes:



      cv2.imwrite('img.png', img)



      This program also design squares on the eyes, mouth and face.

      That's the first time I work with embedded systems and Galileo platform and all program I find is for linux in desktops.

      Thank you.
