Use of NCS on Android

Community Manager

I wanted to use the Modivius NCS with Android as a dedicated, portable, offline vision processor and I couldn't find any documentation about it. I'm aware that only Ubuntu is officially supported at the moment, although one discussion seemed to have some success on Linux Mint.


I was curious if there are any USB drivers for Android, or if there aren't any, if there's any expected timeline or some documentation/source code to implement these drivers ourselves.

@tejashah88 We don't offer out of the box support, but we do make our API available so anyone can build the API from source on their favorite platform (found in the /opt/movidius directory). If you follow the instructions on with Android NDK, you should be able to run inferences on Android phones.
