OpenCV on Galileo with python

Hi,

I read many thread on opencv on galileo in this communities but none was complete. Someone can write step by step from the initial choice (for example yocto, XDK, arduino, eclispe ecc) how to install? how to use with python?

Thank you so much and sorry for my english.

Hi Marin,

 

 

Thank you for contacting us! We will try to help you clarify your questions regarding OpenCV on Galileo.

 

Just to help you in a better way, I would like to ask some more questions, thank you in advance for your answers.
  • Which Galileo image are you using?
  • Could you please provide the website where you downloaded the image?
I believe the standard Galileo image, the one found on the Downloads website, comes with OpenCV already installed, so it won't be necessary to install it.

 

We'll be waiting for your answers.

 

 

Regards,

Hi marins90,

There is an old thread on opencv, yocto images,

It "seems" to be solved, but I do not understand the details in that thread, and python does not seem to be involved in that discussion either. Maybe replying Pablo's questions is your best choice right now.

Fernando.

Hi Fernando and Pablo,

thanks so much for the reply. To answer questions from Pablo:

I tried initially with debian (I know that is not official) and I managed to do the streaming and motion capture, and I loaded the captured frames to a local server using Apache. But now I need to install opencv and python for a university project in which I required to capture the frame via python or c ++ and i think the best way is to do it with opencv but I failed to install it in debian.

Now I have therefore downloaded from the https://downloadcenter.intel.com/download/24355/Intel-Galileo-Board-Software-Package sdcard.1.0.8.tar I extracted the files and copied to the SD I opened python and recalled opencv having the error in the first photo.

Then I made another attempt by formatting the memory card, then I downloaded from the https://software.intel.com/en-us/iot/hardware/galileo/downloads fileLatest Yocto * Image Poky (210 MB) and followed the procedure. When I called opencv python I got the error in the picture 2

it is possible that no one has managed to capture frames from your webcam through Galileo??? if someone has managed you can help me?

Thank you

Hi Marin,

 

 

I'm sorry to hear you're getting that output when trying run openCV with Python, now I'm wondering if you've checked this video before, is about capturing images using Python and OpenCV.

 

I've also noticed that you're able to use C++ as well, so I would also suggest you to check these links:
