Hi, today I have a fascinating single-board computer named Beagleboard AI.So far, my favorite single-board computer was Darknet in OpenCL on Asus Tinker Board S. Let’s login via SSH on the flashed system on the SD card and configure it. I connected to it also hardware webcam Logitech C920… but just before, I will show you the design and then command prompts to make it use Darknet on OpenCL

Let’s set it up now.
passwd #to change the default password
sudo su – # to become a root :D.
apt list –upgradable # optional to check what will be updated
apt install cmake
apt install ocl-icd-opencl-dev
apt install opencl-headers
apt install libclblas-dev
# if there is kernel in update list do a reboot and start over
reboot # or exit from root command prompt
git clone git clone https://github.com/sowson/darknet.git
vi CMakeList.txt # or nano or joe or vim… set DARKNET_ARM=ON
vi src/opencl.h # add in ARM definition: #define CL_TARGET_OPENCL_VERSION 220
cp darknet* ..
rm -rf build
mv yolov2.weights ../../../weights/
# enjoy! :F
Keep in mind this computer is strong but you have to use an extra fan. I did not have it yet… over thermal kernel panic is possible… but this is my setup…
There is one more thing… two days ago, OpenCL 3.0 was released at Khronos Group Site. And the last news is that the Beagleboard AI computer has OpenCV support. I am not sure if you noticed that… Now you can play with Darknet on OpenCL 😀
