Raspberry Pi Setup

If you already captured images from the Raspberry Pi camera, you don't need to do this page twice.

Hardware

The camera and touchscreen display are attached to the Raspberry Pi. Plug in the camera first, then the touchscreen. Be sure the Pi is not powered while assembling hardware.

Here are the links to instructions for the hardware we use in this guide:

  • Camera Install Instructions
  • Touchscreen Installation: The PiTFT just needs to be attached to the 2x20 header so that the board is stacked directly on top of the Pi. The PiTFT module should fit snugly enough in the header port that you shouldn't need to attach any spacers.

Stabilizing the camera

Attach the camera to a larger, more stable object so that it doesn't bounce around on the cable. I taped the camera to the box it shipped in, like so:

Software

Follow the Initial Setup and TensorFlow Lite 2.0 Setup steps. You can stop when you reach the Running the Graphic Labelling Demo section.
