I'm new here so please correct any mistakes.....

I am aiming to use a webcam to detect if a person is looking at it and wants to connect it to a uc only(no computer).The time delay in calculation is acceptable because I dont want any real time processing.I'm ready to use any uc as long as it does not cost too much.I was thinking of using Opencv for the detection.

I felt that posting in any particular uc forum would be helpful.That is why I'm asking help from you guys who work with all kind of things........

Thanks.

micro controllers are usually servery under equipped for such tasks.

Look into ITX based solution , also open CV requires heavy processing , not really what uC based platforms can afford.

How much would such a solution approx. cost?Is it available in India?
Also, what else can I use for the purpose than Opencv solutions?

thanks for your fast reply.
