There have been times when I found myself forgetting my mask before I leave the house. Hence, I have written this code as a reminder tool.
What it does
It is able to detect the presence and absence of a face mask and alert the individual to wear a mask by showing 'Wear Mask' on the screen.
How I built it
I built it with the aid of youtube videos using Python software and a free Cascade Trainer GUI.
Challenges I ran into
I am new to coding and it was difficult to correct errors in the code.
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
Coding this .py program.
What I learned
Python and the difficulties that programmers face in their work.
What's next for Mask Alert
Refining the code to allow for better detection and a cleaner look. It will be nice if people will find the software useful in their daily lives on their phones/webcam.
