I was trying to make esp32 face recognition using the esp32 camera web server example in arduino , and everything works fine untill i press on face detection the frame is frozen , module restarted and put this error to serial monitor :

I tried erasing flash bt it made the same error again I am using Arduino IDE 1.8.12 , esp32-cam operating at 5 volts from the programmer (also tried other external power supplies) and these are the pictures of settings : (also used wrover kit in programming settings with huge app >3mb)

Chip name enter image description here ESP32 Cam enter image description here FTDI Programmer enter image description here AI THINKER enter image description here Settings enter image description here

I want to make a face recognition door lock , if this doesn't work could anyone refer me to how can I get facial recognition on esp32 cam with any other way?


I ran into this issue with the same setup. This Github issue seems identical to ours, and applying the fix in this comment quickly resolved it for me: https://github.com/espressif/arduino-esp32/issues/5128#issuecomment-851785970. Good luck!
