Running the default face detection in the samples folder.

In my lappy(CORE i5 - 3.1GHz) running ubuntu 14.04 : 20-25 frames/sec

In ODROID XU3 : Only 2 frames/sec :(

Do i need to configure something?

there's a couple of things you could try:

  • use a lbpcascade instead of a haar one. (slightly less accurate, but much faster)
  • increase the scaleFactor in detectMultiScale)
  • use smaller images

Thank you. I'll try.

And to add

  • Add a reduced scale range if you have fixed camera position
  • Use background foreground segmentation to only detect moving regions
  • Use a mask to completely ignore regions that don't interest you
