How about adding computer vision to your Internet of Things?

Intel Edison has enough processing power to run simple object or face detection, but it has no cameras.

This tutorial shows how to use a smartphone to bring vision to Edison boards

Step 1: Download the latest Edison firmware

Intel website has all the development tools and firmware images you need to start playing with your Edison board. Go to the following URL and download the latest firmware, under the section "Intel Edison Board Firmware Release" and get the zip file:


Very good instructable. <br>Could you add more details from step 7 to the end? <br>i tried to follow you install OpenCV on Edison, but not succeeded.
<p>I'm sure you have figured it out by now but if not.</p><p>nano /etc/opkg/base-feeds.conf</p><p>change the third line src/gz core2-32 <a href="http://repo.opkg.net/edison/repo/core2-32" rel="nofollow">http://repo.opkg.net/edison/repo/edison</a> to </p><p>src/gz core2-32 <a href="http://repo.opkg.net/edison/repo/core2-32/" rel="nofollow">http://repo.opkg.net/edison/repo/core2-32/</a></p><p>and save (ctrl x then y then enter)</p><p>Then type &quot;opkg update&quot; to update the repositories list</p><p>And type &quot;opkg upgrade&quot; to update the installed packages. It takes some time until it finishes this process.</p><p>Finally, install the packages we need for openCV:</p><p>opkg install python-numpy opencv python-opencv</p><p>i like to use nano over vi </p><p>if nano is not installed</p><p>wget <a href="http://www.nano-editor.org/dist/v2.2/nano-2.2.6.tar.gz" rel="nofollow"> http://www.nano-editor.org/dist/v2.2/nano-2.2.6.t...</a> &amp;&amp; tar xvf nano-2.2.6.tar.gz &amp;&amp; cd nano-2.2.6 &amp;&amp; ./configure &amp;&amp; make &amp;&amp; make install</p>
<p>i'm getting the following error.</p><p>copy_file_chunk: write: no more space left on device</p><p>after opkg upgrade. kindly help</p>
<p>Link above for core2-32 is correct, but Text is not as it points to repo edison rather than repo core2-32. This will prevent the python and opencv packages from being available to opkg install command.</p>
<p>Amazing Instructable. Thanks for share!</p>
<p>Parabens Alex!!!!</p><p>Gostei muito do seu post.</p><p>Euclas.</p>
