In present day technology human-machine interaction is growing in demand and machine needs to understand human gestures and emotions. If a machine can identify human emotions, it can understand human behavior better, thus improving the task efficiency. Emotions can understand by text, vocal, verbal and facial expressions. Facial expressions play big role in judging emotions of a person. It is found that limited work is done in field of real time emotion recognition using facial images. In this paper, we propose a method for real time emotion recognition from facial image. In the proposed method we use three steps face detection using Haar cascade, features extraction using Active shape Model(ASM), (26 facial points extracted) and Adaboost classifier for classification of five emotions anger, disgust, happiness, neutral and surprise. The novelty of our proposed method lies in the implementation of emotion recognition at real time on Raspberry Pi II and an average accuracy of 94% is achieved at real time. The Raspberry Pi II when mounted on a mobile robot can recognize emotions dynamically in real time under social/service environments where emotion recognition plays a major role.
