Abstract -
Human face detection and recognition play important role in many applications such as video surveillance and face image database management. Many devices which are available can detect human face in live video but fail to track camera moments accordingly. The main scope of this project proposal is to control camera movements based on detected human face in a live video frame. MATLAB is used to detect and track human face. The detected facial features are calculated. The outcome data will be transferred to microcontroller. On receiving data, microcontroller controls camera movements with the help of motors accordingly and data will be displayed on LCD.
