Hands-on with Coral USB Accelerator (for Raspberry Pi)
I though the usb accelerator would be enough for me, so I ordered one of it and tested on my Raspberry Pi 3B+.
Fortunately, the shipping and delivery fee to my country was zero on Mouser.
Ordered on Saturday and received on Monday.
What an amazing delivery!
It installed several packages, changed udev rules, and copied library files.
The guide advices to plug in & out the usb accelerator, but to make sure, I just rebooted the machine.
edgetpu directory, ran following command:
and got almost the same result:
There was a warning message:
Minimum runtime version required by package (5) is lower than expected (10)..
It doesn’t seem like a critical issue, but needs to be fixed sooner or later.
5. What now?
So, I got the usb accelerator and made sure it runs ok on my Raspberry Pi, but what to do now?
Maybe I need to learn TensorFlow Lite and related stuffs, train my own models, and build some applications with them.
