DepthAI API Documentation¶
Host side is a computer, like PC or RPi, to which an OAK device is connected.
Node is a single functionality of the DepthAI. Nodes have inputs or outputs, and have configurable properties (like resolution on the camera node).
Connection is a link between one node’s output and another one’s input. In order to define the pipeline dataflow, the connections define where to send messages in order to achieve an expected result
Messages are transferred between nodes, as defined by a connection. More information here.
Above there’s a graph representation of a (more complex) 2-stage pipeline of the age-gender recognition demo. Graph contains different Nodes connected (linked) to each other. DepthAI Pipeline Graph tool was used to generate this image.
First, you need to install the DepthAI library and its dependencies.
