I always wanted to own a restaurant, and thought I may be able to somehow track the people who come in the most and then reward them when I get to know that they have been coming in often.
How it works
A picture is taken when the sensor senses movement by the Tessel, analyzed by matlab to see if it matches any existing picture that were taken, and increments a counter corresponding to that picture when a match is found.
Challenges I ran into
How to upload the pictures onto an online database for restaurant owners to see.
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
My ability to use Matlab and code the file checking system, facial analyzer, and counter
What I learned
How to use the Tessel with its camera, how to check a folder for new files in matlab, how to create a database using Firebase.
