Compling ARM stuff without an ARM board / Build PyTorch for the Raspberry Pi
I am in the process of building a self-driving RC car. It’s a fun process full of discovery (I hate it already). Once it is finished I hope to write a longer article here about what I learned so stay tuned!
While the electronics stuff was difficult for me (fingers still burnt from soldering) I hoped that the computer vision stuff would be easier. Right? Right? Well no.
Neural network inference on small devices
To be clear I didn’t expect to train my CNN on the Raspberry Pi that I have (its revision 2, with added USB WiFi dongle and USB webcam) but I wanted to do some inference on a model that I can train on my other computers.
I love using PyTorch and I use it for all my projects/work/research. Simply put it’s fantastic software.
Problem 1 - PyTorch doesn’t have official ARMv7 or ARMv8 builds.
While you can get PyTorch if you have NVIDIA Jetson hardware, there are no builds for...
