Face detection is one of the most important modern computer vision topics. The importance of face recognition (FR) is increasing in our society for identification purposes. In this paper, we practically demonstrated the authenticity of an automatic security system for automobiles using face recognition technology. Our proposed system is not only a facial recognition system, but also supports authentication via a GSM module for remote monitoring and permission/control by a specific remote security code. The system was implemented and tested using a Raspberry Pi 3 board, Python and OpenCV to program the different modules for face recognition. The implementation results confirm the applicability of the proposed system as it offers the advantages of robustness, high accuracy, reliability and security at the lowest cost. This paper defines a combination of fail-safe algorithms for the GPS/GSM module in addition to face recognition algorithms, which are more suitable in dynamic environments where high uncertainties are expected and require high accuracy and reasonable speed. In future, we aim to develop an intelligent smart home application to meet the upcoming needs.
