Testing Deep learning on a Raspberry PI 3 B with a mobilenet ssd model. So far so good. The PI can recognize my wife’s flowers as plants. The DNN is working surprising well with just a cheap USB camera I bought off of Ebay. This seems to work regardless of the light level. The one problem is the PI is very slow, about 2 seconds on each test frame. I may try an Intel compute stick.

This was one indoor test for fun. The cheap camera also worked well in low light.
