ROS Intel Movidius Build Error

Hi. I am using to create the compute stick ROS node and have been running into a lot of build errors. I am not experienced enough to dig into the build errors but have tried all sorts of troubleshooting with no luck.

These are the main errors I am getting (full terminal log attached):

ros_intel_movidius_ncs/movidius_ncs_lib/CMakeFiles/movidius_ncs_lib.dir/build.make:62: recipe for target 'ros_intel_movidius_ncs/movidius_ncs_lib/CMakeFiles/movidius_ncs_lib.dir/src/ncs.cpp.o' failed

Every step in the above github link has been completed successfully but clearly something is off.

Any help appreciated!

  • Hi @krym1337

    I went through the ros_intel_movidius_ncs instructions and successfully ran the classification demo. There may be an issue with your environment setup, I recommend trying the instructions on a fresh Ubuntu 16.04 install. Could you share more details about your environment (Ubuntu version, virtual machine?, RealSense Camera or standard USB Camera)?
    Below are the commands I used with the Neural Compute Stick and a regular USB Cam.

    Install Neural Compute SDK (1.12)

    git clone
    make install

    Install Neural Compute Application Zoo

    git clone
    make all

    Install ROS Kinetic
    Followed the ROS Kinetic installation instructions

    Created a workspace for catkin
    Followed setup instructions for kinetic

    **Setup the environment **

    cd /opt/movidius
    sudo ln -s <your-workspace>/ncappzoo /opt/movidius/ncappzoo
    sudo apt-get install ros-kinetic-usb-cam

    Building and Installation

    cd ~/catkin_ws/src
    git clone
    git clone
    cd ros_intel_movidius_ncs
    git checkout master
    cd ~/catkin_ws
    catkin_make install
    source install/setup.bash
    cp ~/catkin_ws/src/ros_intel_movidius_ncs/data/labels/* /opt/movidius/ncappzoo/data/ilsvrc12/

    Run the AlexNet Calssification for Video

    #first terminal
    source ~/catkin_ws/install/setup.bash
    cd /opt/movidius/ncappzoo/caffe/AlexNet
    roslaunch movidius_ncs_launch ncs_camera.launch cnn_type:=alexnet camera:=usb

    #second terminal
    source ~/catkin_ws/install/setup.bash
    roslaunch movidius_ncs_launch ncs_stream_classification_example.launch camera_topic:="/usb_cam/image_raw"

    By the way, I did not see your full error log attached to the post. Could you share it?
