Launching demo applications
By default, there are three demo applications included in the imx-hailo-demo-image.
The detection demo takes the video source from the v4l video device, and you need a camera connected to the device to run this demo.
Usually, the MIPI camera is represented as /dev/video2 device in Linux.
To run this demo:
./apps/detection/detection.sh -i /dev/video2
The license_plate_recognition demo uses prerecorded video for detecting car license plates.
