Facial Detection Software
With many school systems going virtual, teachers often have the challenging task of monitoring their students' progress and participation through video calls.
What it does
Factor Innovo is designed to give teachers the ability and awareness of their students' attentiveness during class by monitor students' faces. In particular, the software monitors the student's head position relative to their screen. After each lesson, the teacher will receive a graphical report that shows the percentage of students distracted over the course of the lesson.
How We Built It
From the start, we used Python to work with Google Cloud's Vision tools to determine the tilt angle. Afterward, we used Django to develop a web application where teachers can upload their recorded videos and receive their statistics.
Challenges We ran into
We had to spend a lot of time reading and implementing Google's API. Additionally, we ran into HTML troubles when developing the web application, especially when trying to reference files from local.
What I Learned
We learned how to use some of Google's tools, Github repository management, and working with Django
What's next for Faceior Innovo?
We're hoping to provide teachers with more analytical data and making the UI cleaner and friendlier.
