The focus of this project was to explore algorithms and techniques used in
motion detection, object recognition and facial recognition, path finding as well as
obstacle avoidance. To apply these algorithms, OpenCV was used. In terms of
hardware, Raspberry Pi were used to perform image processing and robot movement.
To perform image processing various OpenCV commands, such as cv2.GreyScale
followed by cv2.GaussianBlur and cv2.DetectContour were combined. Path finding
and obstacle avoidance were done by integrating an ultrasonic sensor into the system.
Path finding is done by utilizing the coordinates of the bounding box. As a result, the
robot turned around, 90 degree each time, to have a view of each of the four directions,
in search of the target. Once motion was detected, the robot would stop at that direction
and approach until the ultrasonic detected something. The robot would then run a scan
on the target using facial recognition to determine whether it is human.
