human_pose_estimation_demo error on raspbian OS openvino?


When running for a period of time will report the following error?

Running human pose estimation demo on raspberry pi doesn't seem to be supported yet. However, when trying out, the application was just stuck. I found out that doesn't work for me, at least when using the rasperry pi camera (haven't got a USB camera).

So I start the demo using

./human_pose_estimation_demo -m human-pose-estimation-0001-FP16.xml -d MYRIAD -i http://localhost:8090/test.mjpg

and having a ffserver running that is configured as following:

rt 8090
 # bind to all IPs aliased or not
 # max number of simultaneous clients
 MaxClients 10
 # max bandwidth per-client (kb/s)
 MaxBandwidth 1000
 # Suppress that if you want to launch ffserver as a daemon.

<Feed feed1.ffm>
 File /tmp/feed1.ffm
 FileMaxSize 10M

<Stream test.mjpg>
 Feed feed1.ffm
 Format h264
 VideoFrameRate 10
 VideoSize 640x480
 VideoBitRate 1024
 # VideoQMin 1
 # VideoQMax 100
 Strict -1

I start the server like so:

ffserver -f ./ffserver.conf & ffmpeg -v verbose -r 5 -s 640x480 -f video4linux2 -i /dev/video0 http://localhost:8090/feed1.ffm

Then, the demo always crashes with different error messages (unreadable chars, RAM access error, etc.).

I guess, the problems can be found somewhere in human_pose_estimater.cpp:

InferenceEngine::Blob::Ptr input = request.GetBlob(network.getInputsInfo().begin()->first);
    auto buffer = input->buffer().as<InferenceEngine::PrecisionTrait<InferenceEngine::Precision::FP32>::value_type *>();
    preprocess(image, static_cast<float*>(buffer));


because the code (and the preprocess method) use a FP32 precision. However, I haven't been able to successfully change the code to FP16. It would be interesting, if some @Intel could make the demo also work for RPi. I'm not convinved that this really is the problem, because if the NCS2 stick is attached to my notebook, the demo runs without code changes (even without the webcam workaround).
