After sharing a couple of sessions using the Drone and working with the drone camera, a couple of people contacted me with issues while they try to install OpenCV and/or TensorFlow, to be used with Python.
There are plenty of tutorials about this, so I will share a very easy one.
1st step is to install Anaconda (see references). Once Anaconda is installed, let’s launch the Anaconda PowerShell Prompt to install dependencies.
The 2 main commands to install the desired packages are
# install TensorFlow pip install tensorflow --user # install OpenCV pip install opencv-python
And that’s it! All the packages should be installed. An easy way to test if both packages are installed is to launch python and
# check tensorflow, and display tensorflow version import tensorflow as tf tf.__version__ # check OpenCV, and display OpenCV version import cv2 cv2.__version__
The output should be similar to this one
