Convert module to “Supports mappings with NO USB output: YES”

0 votes
I’d like to use the “Demo Saliency” module in an Arduino project but the module does NOT support mappings with NO USB.

What should I do to have a copy of this module that is able to run without USB? (just serial)

Any help pointing me in the right direction will be appreciated.

Best answer

yes, that can be done quite easily. You need to be setup for C++ programming, please see:

http://jevois.org/tutorials/ProgrammerVbox.html

http://jevois.org/tutorials/ProgrammerSetup.html

Then you need to add a member function

void process(jevois::RawImage const & input) override

{

 ...

}

to the DemoSaliency class in DemoSaliency.C

This function will be called by the JeVois core software when running in headless mode. To write the function, you take the other process() function and copy that code, then delete everything that involves the output image (outframe, outimg, etc).

Looking at the code at

http://jevois.org/basedoc/jvpkg_2modules_2JeVois_2DemoSaliency_2DemoSaliency_8C_source.html

it also looks like you would not need to run the saliency computation in a thread (which is parallelized with waiting for the out frame and drawing in it), you can just run

itsSaliency->process(inimg, true);

directly in the main thread of your process() function. I believe you then also should remove the call to 

itsSaliency->waitUntilDoneWithInput();

as this is intended for use when itsSaliency->process() is running in a thread.

Have a look at this tutorial for a general idea of the various steps:
