Duckiebot Installation

Modified 2019-09-22 by Andrea Censi

you only need to install the NCSDK but there is also the option of installing Caffe and/or Tensorflow as well, in order to perhaps speed up the development cycle. I would recommend against it, as it can be a bigger problem than it solves.

Barebones Install (recommended)

Modified 2019-09-22 by Andrea Censi

you don’t need tensorflow, caffe, or any tools in order to run the compiled networks and not installing them will save you a lot of hassle

on duckiebot:

git clone http://github.com/Movidius/ncsdk
cd ~/ncsdk/api/src
make
sudo make install

Caffe/Tensorflow Install

Modified 2019-09-22 by Andrea Censi

if you want to be able to compile your models on the duckiebot itself, install tensorflow or caffe beforehand and remember to install for python 3 (pip3)

follow directions here

make sure caffe and tensorflow as installed

python3 -c 'import tensorflow as tf; import caffe'

install sdk:

git clone http://github.com/Movidius/ncsdk
cd ~/ncsdk
make install
make examples
