Modelling of Eyeball with Pan/Tilt Mechanism and Intelligent Face Recognition Using Local Binary Pattern Operator


Robotics laboratory, Department of Mechanical Engineering, SRM University, Chennai, India


This paper describes the vision system for a humanoid robot, which includes the mechanism that controls eyeball orientation and blinking process. Along with the mechanism designed, the orientation of the camera, integrated with controlling servomotors. This vision system is a bio-mimic, which is  designed to match the size of human eye. This prototype runs face recognition and identifies, matches with a face in the database. Recognition of face leads to capture the facial image and synchronize with the face. As the individual shows any motion, the system also moves according to it.
