    Currently, the raspberry pi can output video from the night vision module over a local network, by inputting the Pi's IP address into a web browser. The pi can be accessed remotely and is able to detect general objects and place a box around the object. 

    However, the final goal is to get the pi to recognise a human figure/face and place a box around them. Further work will continue on this.

Good start! What are you going to use to do the analysis of the video? There are many approaches to this, depending on language, etc.

Good luck!
