ROS YOLO on rpi3 and movidius

We are on a project to make a rescue-robot that detects persons using YOLO and movidius mounted on rpi3. I do not know how to make a YOLO wrapper for ROS since I am new to ROS itself. Is there any available packages that can run yolo on rpi with movidius?

Hi again. Is this a continuation of #q300793? Can you already clarify how the other team members are "customizing YOLO"?

No customizations were done. They just tested if YOLO v3 would run on rpi and movidius, and it works. Now the problem is how to turn it into a package?

It might be an idea to ask the authors of some of the ROS wrappers for YOLO that were already mentioned in #q300793.

We are aiming to make the detections on board the RPi. I don't see any ros-yolo packages in the internet that runs on rpi itself.

Do you know any ros-yolo package that can run on raspberry pi and movidius?

I haven't checked.

My personal approach would be to find a ROS pkg you like/works for you, find a version of YOLO that is compatible with movidius and then understand how to port the movidius support to the ROS pkg you selected earlier.

And it's not YOLO specifically, but perhaps it can help: intel/ros_intel_movidius_ncs.

As you mentioned that other team has already tested that yolo v3 works on your hardware, one thing is use existing implementation, second is to change yolo to work with ros. It shouldn't be that difficult. You have to change mainly message types of incoming Images from ROS Image to opencv.
