*NOTE* This project is done by a group of students from Singapore Polytechnic.
The tools and components were provided by our FYP supervisor Teo Shin Jen.

This project is an expansion from the laser trip wire gun project shown here - 

The only difference is that the gun will not be triggered by laser but by a face.

Basically, this project is combining face tracking and the laser trip wire gun, thus, a face tracking gun.
The algorithm used for face tracking is similar to the one done by techbitar - http://www.instructables.com/id/Face-detection-and-tracking-with-Arduino-and-OpenC/?ALLSTEPS

In order to implement face tracking, openCV is used. OpenCV(open source computer vision) is a library of programming functions for real time computer vision. Their library can be found : http://opencv.willowgarage.com/wiki/ .

Step 1:

Firstly, mount the webcam on the gun. I used a cable tie to tie them together.
<p>please some one help me to my final project face tracking gun i m new i have no knowledge about it so please please some one give me some time to teach me about this project i submit my final year project it is a humble request please</p>
<p>fatal error C1083: Cannot open include file: 'Tserial.h': No such file or directory</p><p>i keep getting this error ,i tried copying files as you described in common folder ,but nothing works ,i still get the same error !!! </p>
<p>I think this page needs an update as the MS link is pooched and does not mention version. 2010 ? </p><p>Current link for OCV is <a href="http://sourceforge.net/projects/opencvlibrary/files/opencv-win/2.4.0/" rel="nofollow">http://sourceforge.net/projects/opencvlibrary/file...</a></p><p>I grabbed 2.4 and also the 32 bit demo pack as I use VS 2010 which defaults to 32 bit.</p><p>Do verify your versions of JAVA. I uninstalled most of my java SDK etc so I could go to the 32 bit versions which seem to work better for a lot of the OpenCv stuff</p>
Genius** Followed Fasttt, good work player
nice work there, can you kindly send your documentations, because im only a member.. plss, thanks in advance.. here's my email, eugeniomelvin@yahoo.com
