DepthAI RaspberryPi Hat¶
The Raspberry Pi HAT Edition allows using the Raspberry Pi you already have and passes through the Pi GPIO so that these are still accessible and usable in your system(s). Its modular cameras allow mounting to your platform where you need them, up to six inches away from the HAT.
Mounts to Raspberry Pi as a HAT for easy integration

What’s in the box?¶
BW1094 Carrier Board
Pre-flashed µSD card loaded with Raspbian 10 and DepthAI
USB3C cable (6 in.)
Follow the steps below to setup your DepthAI device.
Power off your Raspberry Pi.
Safely power off your Raspberry Pi and unplug it from power.
Insert the pre-flashed µSD card into your RPi.
The µSD card is pre-configured with Raspbian 10 and DepthAI.
Mount the DepthAI RPi HAT.
Use the included hardware to mount the DepthAI RPi HAT to your Raspberry Pi.
Reconnect your RPi power supply
Calibrate the cameras.
We’ll execute a DepthAI example Python script to ensure your setup is configured correctly. Follow these steps to test DepthAI:
Start a terminal session.
Clone the depthai example repository.
git clone https://github.com/luxonis/depthai.git
Access your local copy of depthai.
cd [depthai repo]
Install the example repository requirements.
python -m pip install -r requirements.txt
Run demo script.
The script launches a window, starts the cameras, and displays a video stream annotated with object localization metadata:
In the screenshot above, DepthAI identified a TV monitor (1.286 m from the camera) and a chair (3.711 m from the camera).
See the list of object labels in our pre-trained OpenVINO model tutorial.
We’re always happy to help with code or other questions you might have.
