Hi

 

Even if not officially supported (as far as I know…) on Mac OS, it is possible to use the Movidius stick on a Mac OS.

 

Here is the detailed process : https://github.com/acharroux/Movidius-On-MacOS

 

Enjoy !!

@acharroux Thanks for the tutorials. Works like charm. I do advise python3.6 is used instead of python3.7 due to compatibility at this time with latest tensorflow 1.3.0

This won't work with the NCSDK v2 (the ncsdk2 branch). Look at the new API code, e.g. here:

sem_init and sem_destroy aren't supported on macOS. I'm afraid there's little interest at Intel in making it work on Mac, otherwise they wouldn't write new code from scratch containing stuff that's known to be non-portable.

sem_* functions are deprecated on macOS, while compiling with it mostly works except sem_timedwaut, we will replace corresponding inclusions in XlinkDispatcher.c by pthread
