Face detector

Face detector is a face detection Android library which can be easily plugged into any camera API (given it provides a way to process its frames).

Face detector is built on top of MLKit’s face detection API.


Only 2 easy steps:

  1. Add a FaceBoundsOverlay on top of your camera view.

    // Any other views

        ... />

        ... />

    // Any other views

  1. Define a FaceDetection instance and connect it to your camera.
val faceDetector = FaceDetector(facesBoundsOverlay)
cameraView.addFrameProcessor {
            data = it.data,
            rotation = it.rotation,
            size = Size(it.size.width, it.size.height),
            format = it.format,
            lensFacing = cameraView.facing))


  1. Add the code below in your root build.gradle at the end of repositories
allprojects {
    repositories {
        maven { url 'https://jitpack.io' }
  1. Add the dependency
implementation 'com.github.husaynhakeem:android-face-detector:2.0'
