So I did, I added OpenCV with face recognition and detection and added an API call to Azure Cognitive Services in order to add the classification to what the robot can see.
and the result? well, amazing. the robot is now recognizing my kid after taking some pictures of him and me.
he can react to the environment and play and move a lot depending on what he can see.
exactly like Cozmo
but with a price tag of around 25$
How cool is that?
If you want to create your own robot like this, I will be more than happy to share with you all the information that I have.
So drop me a line or go to my Github where the project is.
