Live Face Eyes Detection App in 7 Minutes | OpenCV

In this tutorial, I have touched you, how to create a Live Face Eye Detection App in only  7 Minutes. Its computer vision Artificial Intelligence project and I used OpenCV Python Library and Cascade Classifier.

Live Face Eyes Detection App

# import libraries
import cv2

# Load trained cascade classifier
eye_detect = cv2.CascadeClassifier('haarcascade_eye.xml')

# start camera / read video
cam = cv2.VideoCapture('videos/video (4)_480.mp4')

while True:
    # read frame/image from camera
    resp, frame =
    # no frame then brak loop
    if resp==0:
    # Convert color image into grayscale
    gray_img = cv2.cvtColor(frame, cv2.COLOR_BGR2GRAY)
    # Detect faces ROI
    #Syntax: Classifier.detectMultiScale(input image, Scale Factor , Min Neighbors)
    eyes = eye_detect.detectMultiScale(gray_img, 1.3, 7)
    # Draw rectangle around the faces
    for (x,y,w,h) in eyes:
        cv2.rectangle(frame, (x,y), (x+w, y+h), (0,0,255), 3)
    # Show image
    cv2.imshow('Live Eye Detection', frame)  
    #wait to close window
    if cv2.waitKey(1) & 0xFF == ord('q'):
# release camera/webcam   

#close all windows
