Abstract

Abstract The purpose of this Major Qualifying Project is to develop a prototype of a face detection smart device to be used in the prevention of domestic kitchen stove top fires. To develop a device that can accomplish this task, an OpenMV7 component with an attached camera and microcontroller was used to detect faces in the kitchen area. Presumably, the built-in face recognition software will help reduce the number of kitchen fires caused by unattended stovetops. Specifically, the device, through communication with an STMF1 microcontroller, recognizes a hazardous time interval of the stove being unattended, and will sound an alarm when the hazard is detected.
