Eye blink detection using OpenCV in Ubuntu

Hi all

This is a simple project that i did recently. The purpose of this project is to detect the blinking of eyes. The application of this project is to detect whether the driver inside the car is sleeping or not.

Using this program, we can detect the eyes of the user and can track their eyes.  Using template matching technique, we will check whether the eyes are closed or not .. If the eyes are closed, it will print a message in terminal also execute a python script to pass control the event into external devices such as arduino or anyother boards

 Opencv code :blink_detection.cpp

How to install Raspbian on Raspberry Pi

Hi all

    Recently i purchased a raspberry pi from Kits and spares. I am giving the link here

    Installation instruction.

1)Select a memory card with  4 GB. Select 8GB or 16GB or  32GB will be good if you plan to do some heavy work on Raspberry Pi. Me selected the following sd card from sandisk. Here is the link

Its a 32GB ,class 10 memory card from SanDisk

2)Select a good powersupply:  Raspberry Pi requires a charger with a rating 5V 500ma-1A adapter for  normal operation. But if you want to interface more device into Rpi, either select a good charger with 5V,2A or puchase a powered usb hub.
