The ESP-EYE is a new ESP32-based board dedicated to artificial intelligence (AI) with voice wake-up and face recognition.
Taking a first look at the ESP-EYE board, It is impressive how small it is. Just with 21mm by 41mm, it is equiped with a 2 MP camera, on-board microphone, reset, boot, and function buttons and two LEDs. It features 4MB Flash, 8MB PSRAM, and Micro USB type-C connector.
Inside the ESP-EYE package, they provide a quick start guide labeling the board and showing its main features.
The ESP-EYE came flashed with the ESP-WHO facial recognition software. This allows us to build an IP camera that can detect faces and distinguish people. The GitHub page provides a schematic showing the ESP-EYE workflow.
Basically, after applying power to the board, you should wake it up with voice commands. You should say “Hi Lexin” to wake it up.
After waking up, it creates an access point that you can connect to. After connecting to the ESP-EYE access point, you can access the camera video streaming in your browser using the following URL: 192.168.4.1/face_stream.
You can enroll a new face on the system by pressing the function button. It will associate the face with an ID. After that, it should easily recognize you, and displays a message saying “Hello” followed by the face ID.
If it doesn’t know the face, it displays “Who?”.
