3. How to Run DeepCamera on Edge Device

3.1 Run on Android(5.1+ aarch64)

3.2 Run on Rockchip RK3399 with linux/docker

3.2.1 Use prebuilt docker images

git clone
cd DeepCamera/docker  
sudo ./ start

3.3 Run on Rockchip RK3288 with Android 5.1

3.4 Run on X86 Laptop Docker

3.4.1 Use prebuilt docker images

git clone -b pc_version
cd DeepCamera/docker
sudo ./ start #make sure Serial No is in docker/workaipython/ro_serialno

3.4.2 Build docker images on your local machine

git clone -b android_porting
cd ImageBuilder-DeepLearning/Docker-DeepEye/workai/

Then run DeepCamera, will use local docker images

git clone
cd DeepCamera/docker
docker-compose -f docker-compose-x86.yml up

3.5 Run on Raspberry Pi

4. Link to Your Camera
