Hi,

I would like to connect several cameras to the intel aero board but it only has one USB-OTG connection. I would like to know if there is any way to make these connections to visualize several images.

Thank you.

Hello jvela,

 

 

Thank you for your interest in the Intel Aero Compute Board.

 

 

Could you please let us know how many USB cameras are you planning to use with the board? What are the cameras that you want to use? Please note that are some requirements that you need to take into consideration - find them https://github.com/intel-aero/meta-intel-aero/wiki/06-Cameras-and-Video# camera-choice here

 

 

You can use a powered USB adapter to increase the number of USB ports available, but you will need to make sure that it can provide enough power for all the cameras.

 

 

Also, you can use https://github.com/intel-aero/meta-intel-aero/wiki/06-Cameras-and-Video# network-streaming-with-gstreamer GStreamer to get the video stream.

 

 

Best regards,

 

Eliza

Hi Eliza,

I had thought about connecting two or three cameras, I had not thought about the camera model.

I will consider the option of using a USB adapter.

Thank you very much.
