Environmental Scanner - Arduino-based Sensor Array

Environmental Scanner The Environmental Scanner project began as a simple Arduino-based, environmental monitoring and alert system. Featuring and array of Adafruit and SparkFun electronic sensors, Arduino Uno and an ethernet shield, the Environmental Scanner will host a webpage containing sensor readings and alerts. This webpage will display the current sensor readings, which will refresh every few seconds and will send an alert when sensor levels exceed certain, predefined thresholds.

Facial Recognition Using Python and a Webcam

In this tutorial we will explore basic machine learning concepts by developing a simple facial recognition program in under 22 lines of code, using a webcam, Python 2.7, and the open source library OpenCV v2. OpenCV is a popular library for computer vision, which was originally written in C/C++, but now provides bindings for Python. This tutorial is based on Shantnu Tiwari's python blog, which can be found at
