Configurations for Intel® Neural Compute Stick 2

Linux

Once you have OpenVINO™ Runtime installed, follow these steps to be able to work on NCS2:

  1. Add the current Linux user to the users group:

    sudo usermod -a -G users "$(whoami)"
  2. Go to the install_dependencies directory:

    cd <INSTALL_DIR>/install_dependencies/
  3. Copy the 97-myriad-usbboot.rules file to the udev rules directory:

    sudo cp 97-myriad-usbboot.rules /etc/udev/rules.d/
  4. Now reload udev rules with rules that you copied

    sudo udevadm control --reload-rules
    sudo udevadm trigger
    sudo ldconfig
  5. You may need to reboot your machine for this to take effect.

You’ve completed all required configuration steps to perform inference on Intel® Neural Compute Stick 2.

macOS

These steps are required only if you want to perform inference on Intel® Neural Compute Stick 2 powered by the Intel® Movidius™ Myriad™ X VPU.

To perform inference on Intel® Neural Compute Stick 2, the libusb library is required. You can build it from the source code or install using the macOS package manager you prefer: Homebrew, MacPorts or other.

For example, to install the libusb library using Homebrew, use the following command:

brew install libusb

You’ve completed all required configuration steps to perform inference on your Intel® Neural Compute Stick 2.
