Jetson Xavier NX Lesson 15: Training the Face Recognition Program to Recognize People

In this video lesson we should you a simple method to train our face recognizer on larger data sets. We use the python os.walk command to step through, and train automatically on all the training images in our folder. We then show how to store our training set to our SD card using the pickle utility. This allows us to train once, and use the trained model over and over.

For your convenience, the code below is what we developed to allow training our face recognition model.

Then this is a simple program that loads the trained model, and uses it to recognize people in unknown images.


Jetson Xavier NX Lesson 12: Intelligent Scanning for Objects of Interest

In this Video Tutorial we show how a camera on a pan/tilt control system can be programmed to search for an object of interest, and then track it when found.  Our system has two independent camera systems, and each can track a separate item of interest independently. The code is written in python, using the OpenCV library. The video takes you through the lesson step-by-step, and then the code is included below for your convenience.

If you want to play along at home, we are using the Jetson Xavier NX, which you can pick up HERE. You will also need to of the bracket/servo kits, which you can get HERE, and then two Raspberry Pi Version two cameras, available HERE.
