The project aims at developing a module which consists of Microsoft Kinect Version 2 to identify the human face and various human facial expressions. Using the commonly available gaming console sensor, Kinect for Xbox One, we plan to create a simple windows application which utilizes various data streams from the sensor. The major sensor data steams we are using for facial detection and emotion detection are the colour stream, IR stream, depth stream and the body joints stream. Microsoft Visual Studio is used along with Microsoft Kinect SDK Version 2 to make the application.
