Running Image Detection on Hikey 970


#1

I am looking at running yolov3 on the Hikey 970. If I install yolo with non GPU features, will the Hikey 970 automatically port the threads to the GPU. Has anybody tried other continuous image detection software on this board? If so, how many frames per second could it processes?

The choices are using an existing neural framework and trying to
accelerate yolo using OpenCL (e.g. run on the GPU) or, alternatively,
try to hook thinks up to the hikey970 neural processing unit.

I’m afraid I can’t comment on the performance of either of these
approaches (not having tried either). Information on how to exploit the
NPU appears on the hihope.org website. Looks for documents labelled
“HiAi”:

Thank You, this is super helpful. I will defiantly look into accelerating the offline model using the NPU.

@lazerfire15 are you able to run image detection on Hikey970?

@lazerfire15, did you try yolov3?
What about the performance?
Thanks!!
