Which single board computer for path recognition with OpenCV?

Mon Jun 17, 2019 4:22 pm


I am working on a trajectory recognition project. I wish to have an opinion on the type of single board computer to use.

I used the Raspberry PI 3 B+ and the ODROID C2 which are not powerful enough for what I want to do.

I want to track the trajectory of a green lid and record it on a remote server.

My problem is that with the two cards mentioned above, the sampling of the trajectory is too slow, which does not allow me to recognize the trajectory of the lid.


I have a max budget of 500 €, what advice would you give me on the single board computer to buy? I want to do my development on the Ubuntu OS.

I plan to buy UDOO X86 ULTRA, what do you think?

These forums are provided by Raspberry Pi for the support of their products.
Support or recommendations of other products is outside their scope.

I'd suggest you do your development on whatever you have, and once you have it working look to optimise it for an SBC. OpenCV is a seriously heavyweight application that is very inefficient in many places.
