This plugin adds face recognition and tracking to the ardrone-webflight environment. The drone will attempt to detect a face and will try to keep always facing at the face by autonomously rotating towards.
This code will trigger autonomous movements of the drone. Use at your own risk and test it in a controlled environment before going outdoors.
Either copy, link, or use git-submodule to put this code repository in the webflight plugin folder.
Edit your webflight config.js to enable this plugin
Press the 'f' key to toggle face tracking on/off
Thanks a lot to Paul Hayes for coming up with this awesome hack and sharing it with the rest of the world.
