    GOAL: Every group should something to show at the next meeting. By the next meeting you should be able to demonstrate something to the club and it should inform us what the next step is.

    (Remember prototypes should be quick and dirty, take as little time and money as possible to test out the idea)

    Next Meeting is 11/30/17

    Facial Recognition Group 

    Next goal: 

    - Stationary prototype

    (go through the process of setting up linux box and open cv, and hook up camera, and try out different sample codes)


    - Recognize someone is there

    - Recognize someone is smiling

    - Cause a reaction to occur based if the person is smiling
