I am trying the OpenVINO framework on a Raspberry Pi 3B+ with a Intel NCS2 stick and python bindings. I installed the latest version from here https://download.01.org/opencv/2019/openvinotoolkit/l_openvino_toolkit_raspbi_p_2019.1.094.tgz and I can say it works quite well until now and I am able to execute models on the myriad device.
In order to understand the performance improvements of the execution of models with the NCS2, I was trying to load the CPU plugin instead of the MYRIAD and I got the following error
RuntimeError: Cannot find plugin to use :
The python code that generates the error is
from openvino.inference_engine import IEPlugin plugin = IEPlugin("CPU")
Of course, if I replace CPU with MYRIAD it works.
Looking on the documentation, I read that the CPU plugin should not supported by RaspberryPi. Am I right? Is there any intention to ru the CPU plugin also on raspberry pis?
I apologize for the late response. But yes, you're correct - the CPU plugin is not supported by the Raspberry Pi since it uses an ARM processor.
Please let me know if you have any further questions.
