video analysis from IP camera

Tue Oct 01, 2019 11:45 am

Good morning, I write to get information from someone more experienced than me.

I'm trying to create a facial recognition system using the Open CV library, but I need to know if it is possible to do a video stream analysis of an online IP camera and not a physically compatible one with raspberry.

look for answers,
Thanks in advance

In theory yes.. in practice it depends on your IP camera. ... hon-opencv

There are posted examples of facial recognition using the Raspberry Pi, for example ... cognition/

don't expect it to work very fast, as this needs a lot of computation. He mentions 1 or 2 FPS for face recognition, but you can get 8 or 10 fps if you're just doing tracking, or face detection instead of specific individual recognition.

There are "AI accelerator" add-on USB devices that can speed up specific kinds of deep learning networks by a factor of maybe 10x on the Pi. Not sure if they would be specifically applicable to this task or not.
