What originally inspired me to work on this project was that I worked on a motion detector OpenCV project in 2019 and I remember it being really interesting to interact with and not too much work for a hackathon.

What it does

Pretty much all the app does is use a dataset of classifications to help it recognize what a face looks like and then outlines any faces detected with a green border. this is all done in real-time over the webcam.

How we built it

I built this app with OpenCV and a built python library

Challenges we ran into

I already had worked on something similar in the past so I just needed to get an understanding of how to recognize certain images

Accomplishments that we're proud of

I was luckily able to finish the app in less than a day due to the low amount of work needed to get it running

What we learned

How different image classifications work

What's next for Face tracker

I'm not sure if I want to add on to it but I guess we'll know later in the future
