I am really new and just beginning with the RealSense and Joule computer. My plan is to have four RealSense R200 cameras to monitor different locations, each with its own Joule 570 computer. Each Joule/RealSense system will monitor for a triggering condition window, clip the images then send the image stream to a host computer for recording. The Joule computers will be running Ref-OS-IoT and the host recording the image stream (for later processing) will be running Windows 10. How would I do this? Is there any sample software I could use?
Thanks for your interest in the Intel® Joule™ Platform.
This sounds like a really interesting project! Unfortunately, the supported Realsense camera with the Intel® Joule™ is the ZR300 (http://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/support/boards-and-kits/intel-joule-kits/000023508.html How to Connect the Intel® RealSense™ Camera ZR300 to the Intel®... ). Nevertheless, there is a user who was able to use a R200 on the Joule, you can see his project details on this thread: .
My advice would be to use the ZR300 with your project and flash the Joule with the Ubuntu OS. Thus, in order to use the librealsense which is an open-source library that allows you to capture data with the Intel® Realsense™ Cameras.
Please let me know if any questions come up, have a nice day!
Thank-you for the information. I purchased (2) R200s long before purchasing the Joule 570 (in which the Product Brief claims "Support for Intel® RealSense™ cameras and libraries"). Now I find out the R200 is not supported. So now I have (4) ZR300 on backorder with Mouser but I am still confused. I cannot seem to find the difference between the ZR300 camera and the ZR300 development kit (which costs a couple hundred bucks more).
I am currently following the online guide for Joule and just updated the OS to the current version of Ref-OS-IoT which seemed to be what Intel recommends. Looking through the "How to Connect the Intel RealSense Camera ZR300 to the Intel Joule" guide, it wants me to use the Canonical Ubuntu 16.04 LTS operating system. (This was also your suggestion.) I guess I now need to go find out how to install Ubuntu.
The information provided by Intel is conflicting, confusing and hard to find without serious searching. What am I to do so I don't waste my time searching through conflicting and confusing information? In the meantime, I will start searching the forums for RealSense and Joule to see what I can find.
I apologize for the misdirection in the Product Brief article, I will report this to the right Department. Now, regarding the difference between the ZR300 and the ZR300 Development Kit, at our official store we only offer the Development Kit (https://click.intel.com/realsense.html https://click.intel.com/realsense.html ). So I would be careful, since maybe Mouser is working as a retailer and is selling only the bare module.
Finally, you can follow this guide (https://developer.ubuntu.com/core/get-started/intel-joule Intel Joule | Developer ) in order to install Ubuntu into your Intel® Joule™ Platform. Also, I leave you here with the official guide for the SDK Linux that uses the Intel® Joule™ and the ZR300 (https://software.intel.com/sites/products/realsense/intro/getting_started.html Introduction to Intel® RealSense™ SDK for Linux: Getting Started ).
Have a nice day!
Thank-you for your guidance and concern. I think I would like to look into making the R200 work on the Joule and will go through the links you provided as well as search for others. This discussion has gotten off topic and if I need anything else, I will search and post any future questions in the appropriate location. If you like, you can send me your email address to help guide me through the process. Intel has a lot of misleading, incomplete, and conflicting documentation posted which makes it difficult to know what exactly to do. I need to try to sort things out.
Like I mention in my first reply, the ZR300 is the only supported Realsense Camera on the Intel® Joule™, we can't guarantee that the R200 will work.
Now, if you are interested in support by email, I would encourage to follow this link https://supporttickets.intel.com/?lang=en-US https://supporttickets.intel.com/?lang=en-US . We will be happy to help with any misleading or incomplete documentation.
Have a nice day!
