Inference error while using Multiple NCS2 devices with RaspberryPi 4

Greetings everyone,

I'm working on a project where I'm required to run three different deep learning models concurrently where each of models take frames from a live video feed as input. I'm using the Rpi 4 for post processing and some control system jobs and I'm using the NCS2 stick for the models' inferencing. Since I couldn't fit more than one model in a single NCS2's memory, I decided to inference them independently on 3 NCS devices. [Note: The 3 DL models that I'm using function independently] I'm loading each model on a separate NCS and using them simultaneously.

The three NCS2 sticks are connected to the Rpi4. 

In this setup, I'm noticing that after ~20mins, one of the NCS sticks runs into the error as shown below.

Is this an error regarding the power supply to the NCS? or does the NCS has a tendency to crash when used for longer duration of time.  

Any help into understanding the reason behind this error would be a great help.

Hi Krbism,


Thanks for reaching out to us.


Yes, you are right. It might be due to a power delivery issue.


I would like to share this previous discussion that the similar issue was solved by unplugging all other USB devices except of the NCS2.

Peh

Hi Peh,

Thank you for your response.

I tried disconnecting other devices from the USB port and kept only the 3 NCS devices plugged to the Rpi4. But still I seem to get the same error after some inferences. 

Is there any other reason behind this?

Hi Krbism,

 

Could you share the files (models, inference application) with us, if possible, for us to replicate on our side?

Hi Krbism,


Thank you for your question. If you need any additional information from Intel, please submit a new question as this thread is no longer being monitored.
