Who is at the coffee machine? Facial Recognition using Raspberry Pi, OpenCV, and Sigfox.

Have you ever wonder how facial recognition works? Have you heard of Sigfox? Do you like Raspberries?


In this tutorial, we will see how to develop a prototype using a Raspberry Pi to recognize faces with OpenCV and send the Id of the recognized people through Sigfox Network.


In this tutorial, we will be using:

  • A Raspberry Pi 2 or 3
    I built this project using the Raspberry Pi 2. However, in order to write the tutorial, take screenshots, or just try, I’ve been using the model 3. It should work on both raspberries then.
  • An SD card
  • Shield SNOC with an antenna: http://yadom.fr/carte-rpisigfox.html
  • Camera Raspberry
  • An LCD display:
    I used the Grove-LCD RGB backlight: https://www.seeedstudio.com/item_detail.html?p_id=…
  • Few wires
  • Some carton to make the box
  • To prepare the Raspberry Pi, you also need a screen with HDMI port, a mouse, and a keyboard.
