We are currently working on a project where we are trying to build an autonomous robot - or rather, create additional features for an already existing robot.
The aim is to implement autonomous driving using either the ZED-camera or a posititioning sytem (or a combination of both), as well as making the robot wave to people it encounters using facial recognition. The robot already has code allowing it to detect faces, although it was implemented using a Kinect instead.
However, we have encountered tons of problems with our ZED. Basically, since the robot already has a bunch of features it doesn’t have that much space left on the primary memory, so we bought an SSD for extra storage. For the facial recognition we need to use OpenCV, which already was installed. But the ZED camera needs OpenCV with OpenGL (ie. compile from source). Since compiling from source takes a lot more space than the precompiled version, we thought we’d install it on the SSD. But it seems like the Jetson, the ZED, or a combination of them doesn’t really support this as we constantly get “Couldn’t find OpenCV” and other assorted errors when we try to run the demo on the ZED homepage.
Has anyone encountered a similar problem to ours? Would it be better if we make the SSD the boot drive and just reinstall everything?
