I want to connect a usb camera to the edision. as I know the standard Arduino module board have a host usb which can connect usb camera directly.

But how can I connet the camera use a small board which only have OTG microUSB port?

Such as break out board ,or Romeo for Edison Controller or SparkFun Block for Intel® Edison - Base

Hello,

 

 

Thank you for interest in the Intel® Edison Breakout Board.

 

 

In order to connect a USB device to the Edison Breakout Board you need a Micro USB OTG to USB Adapter.

 

 

I found a site that explains in detail certain aspects of connecting a USB device to the Edison Breakout Board. It mentions the adapter required, how to supply power the board, and connecting and detecting the corresponding device. This is the link http://drejkim.com/blog/2014/11/06/connecting-a-usb-device-to-the-edison-mini-breakout-board/.

 

 

I hope you find the previous information useful.

Thank you ,I tried this method with my breakout board ,but I cannot detect the video0 in /dev,I think it maybecause of my OTG cable is broken.
