V-function Face Detect not working on Unit-V



  • Just got a Unit-V and was trying to use the face detection V-function. I burned the FaceDetect v1.1 firmware to the Unit-V using the M5Burner. I used the example in the docs (but on an M5StickC-Plus instead of a core) and I can't get it to detect anything.

    Looking at the serial logs of the Unit-V, there is this error:

    [MAIXPY]Pll0:freq:832000000

    I think the firmware is not correct for the Unit-V. Any ideas?



  • Hello world101, I have a similar problem. None of the UIFlow Unit V examples work. I am using a M5StickC and the latest firmware on both M5StickC (1.6.4) and Unit V. I would appreciate better help from M5Stack - there are no examples, no help and little documentation - it is all guess work. Others have suggested differences between the two V modules and a flip in image orientation may be required.


  • M5Stack

    it is a bug. we will fix it as soon as possible.

    actually, we have provided the tutorial document

    https://docs.m5stack.com/#/en/quick_start/unitv/v_function


  • M5Stack

    we just release a new firmware. you could remove the firmware then redownload it(same firmware version number) in the M5Burner firmware list. will be ok



  • @m5stack said in V-function Face Detect not working on Unit-V:

    Thanks. With the updated firmware, now I have the face detection v-function working now with the example in the docs.



  • @m5stack Thanks for the link. I would recommend that you put a link to this tutorial from the product documentation



  • @dsrc12 I still can not get any of the code software modules such as Bar code or April Tag to work with either M5StickC Plus or Fire. Here are some of my screen shots.

  • M5Stack

    @dsrc12 you could change the tag class. the v-function only supported the Tag36H11



  • @m5stack I have tried Tag36H11 images for numbers and this makes no difference. UnitV with M5Stack Fire and UIFlow did not decode the images. I did not make any alternation to my UIFlow code. Did you test this software?
