Drive PX 2: USB/Ethernet for video input?

I have to test a nVidia Drive PX 2 Autochauffeur platform.
At the moment I have no GMSL cameras.
Can I use an USB camera connected to the USB 3 ports available on the device?
Can I send video through the Ethernet port?

Thank you.

Dear pmele,

Can I use an USB camera connected to the USB 3 ports available on the device?
-> Yes, you can connect USB camera but there are not much samples for USB camera in DPX2.
Can I send video through the Ethernet port?
-> May I know about about your application for that?
I think SSD via USB port is better than Ethernet port. Thanks.

Dear Steve,

I am testing your device, at first with a single camera, and then with multiple cameras.
I need to feed live video, coming from a self driving car.

For the first testing phase, I can use a simple USB camera. Can I simply plug it in one of the two USB-3 ports available?

Then I need to connect multiple cameras, still through the USB-3 port. Can I do it with a simple USB hub? How many cameras can I connect in this way?

Then I would like to be able to use the GbE port, for the same purpose.

Is all this possible?

What do you mean with: “Yes, you can connect USB camera but there are not much samples for USB camera in DPX2”?
Are there any differences, from the user point of view, in feeding video through USB, Ethernet or GMSL?

Thank you.

Dear pmele,

As far as you know, DrivePX2 has 3ea USB port and 2ea Tegra(TegraA and TegraB)

  1. USB2.0 : Debug purpose.
  2. USB3.0 2ea, one is for TegraA, the other is for TegraB

If you use TegraA, please connect TegraA USB port.

Can I do it with a simple USB hub?
-> Yes you can use USB 3.0 hub.

How many cameras can I connect in this way?
-> It depends on USB bandwidth.

What do you mean with: “Yes, you can connect USB camera but there are not much samples for USB camera in DPX2”?
-> We provide several DriveWorks samples and sources for DrivePX2 but there are not much USB camera sample in DriveWorks. Thanks.

Dear Steve,

So far I could connect a USB hub, to which I can successfully connect a keyboard, a mouse and a USB video-camera.

Could you point me to the few USB camera samples you wrote are available?

Thank you.

Dear pmele,

Please see DriveWorks Samples -> USB Camera Capture Sample in Driveworks doc /usr/local/dirveworks-0.3/doc/ in DPX2. Thanks.
