How to Install ZED SDK on Nvidia Jetson
To use Stereolabs’ cameras on NVIDIA Jetson platforms, you need to:
- Setup JetPack.
- Install the ZED SDK for Jetson.
Download and Install JetPack #
Note: if you are working with a Stereolabs’ ZED Box, please refer to the relative documentation.
NVIDIA Jetson boards need to be flashed first with JetPack (their operating system). We recommend using the NVIDIA SDK Manager to flash your Jetson with the latest OS image and developer tools.
Go to the JetPack section of NVIDIA’s website, and click on Download SDK Manager. More installation instructions are available on Install Jetson Software with SDK Manager.
Download and Install the ZED SDK #
Download the ZED SDK for Jetson. Multiple versions of JetPack are supported, make sure to select the one that matches your system.
Go to the folder where the installer has been downloaded.
$ cd path/to/download/folder
- Add execution permission to the installer using the
chmod +xcommand. Make sure to replace the installer name with the version you downloaded.
$ chmod +x ZED_SDK_JP4.3_v3.0.run
- Run the ZED SDK installer.
At the beginning of the installation, the Software License will be displayed, hit
qafter reading it.
During the installation, you might have to answer some questions on the installation of dependencies, tools and samples. Type
