Use DepthAI on your existing host. Since the AI/vision processing is done on the Myriad X, a typical desktop could handle tens of DepthAIs plugged in (the effective limit is how many USB ports the host can handle).

Requirements

What’s in the box?

  • DepthAI USB3 with onboard cameras Carrier Board
  • USB3C cable (6 ft.)
  • Power Supply

Setup

Follow the steps below to setup your DepthAI device.

Connect your host to the DepthAI USB carrier board

Connect the DepthAI USB power supply (included)

Install the Python DepthAI API

See our instructions.

Calibrate Stereo Cameras

Use the DepthAI calibration script with the following argument:

-brd bw1098obc

This sets the distance between the stereo cameras to their distance on the board.

Download and run DepthAI Python examples

We’ll execute a DepthAI example Python script to ensure your setup is configured correctly. Follow these steps to test DepthAI:

  1. Start a terminal session.
  2. Access your local copy of depthai.
     cd [depthai repo]
    
  3. Run python3 test.py.
    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.
