Can I save video through a wireless connection?

I would like to collect data for deep learning algorithm through 'savevideo' module of JeVois.

By the way, using JeVois's USB cable, images can be collected only in the near environment.

How can I communicate with host-pc and collect images without connecting USB cable?

Maybe the easiest is to use a raspberry pi zero W or regular pi 3, and connect JeVois to the Pi using a short USB cable. Make sure you use a Y cable and also connect JeVois to power as the Pi cannot power JeVois (see http://jevois.org/doc/UserConnect.html ). You capture the video from JeVois on the pi using some custom OpenCV code (search google for "opencv capture video camera") and then stream those frames over wifi. We have not tested it, but maybe mjpg-streamer (described below) or similar exists for the Pi.

You could also try to use an OpenWRT box with the connections shown in the above link (look for the section about OpenWRT). Then run the mjpg-streamer OpenWRT module, see https://wiki.openwrt.org/doc/howto/webcam or the more recent https://openwrt.org/docs/guide-user/hardware/video/webcam
