Existing Work:

In the Existing System, it was developed on a ARM 9 Based Device is very have very low hardware specifications , due to which open cv based image processing applications will run at a very slow rate.

As well the face recognition used in this implementation where using a predefined database images only.

Proposed Work:

In the proposed Face Recognition using Image Processing Platform on ARM11 work ware going to implement the face recognition on a live USB camera streaming over a powerful ARM 11 architecture based board using a Debian based Linux operating system ( Raspbian OS) and OpenCV image processing library ported on it.

Here, a USB camera will be interface to the board, the system will have 2 modes i.e. Training & Recognition. In training mode, will capture live images of the face to be recognized and train it accordingly with a specific user id, in recognition mode the system will recognize the face if it is authenticated then will turn on the motor or else no action will be done.
