I have most of the hardware installed into Rosie and have basic tracking working. I have added a video of this.
I still need to add hardware limit switches and decide what to have it do when there are multiple faces in view. I will probably have it spend a certain time on one face then pan to another, and so on.
I have a proof of concept working with OpenCV running on a PC and using a Logitech webcam we had lying around. I have very professionally taped the webcam to a servo that I am driving from an arduino. The python code is interfacing with the arduino over usb serial.
I have ordered the hardware for the robot and am awaiting it's arrival. Once I get OpenCV up and running on the RPI3 then I will work on the hardware interface on Rosie.
