I would just like to ask about the performance of my Jetson Nano because I don’t think it’s normal and it gets more and more frustrating.
I have a slightly more complicated Python program running on my Nano, with an attached GPIO ultrasonic sensor and a CSI camera using it. I use libraries like gstreamer for capturing and OpenCV for rendering, adding overlays and stuff. I admit my program is quite power intesive but I still don’t see a reason for my Nano crashing several times when I execute it. It’s very confusing: Sometimes I run it everything works well, then suddenly the system slows down and doesn’t react or crashes. I power it with an MicroUSB-cable at maximum energy consumption (10W), so what is the problem?
And even worse, I planned to power the Jetson Nano from a power bank. It has 5V-2.1A output which should exactly match the Nano’s 10W but somehow every time I start my program the Nano crashes, probably due to wrong energy supply. If I do the same on 5W mode, the program runs extremely slow with just 5 FPS or so, and then it freezes again like described before.
Any ideas how to improve my setup or how to solve this problem? What can be causing it? It would be very important for my project that the Jetson Nano runs as fast as possible when attached to a power bank. I’m also quite sure that the problem lies not in my program’s code because it works appropriately without error messages and stuff.
Thanks for the help in advance!
