ZED SDK v3.7.2 Beta for JetPack 5 Developer Preview

Today we released a beta version of the ZED SDK v3.7.2 with support for the Nvidia JetPack 5 Developer Preview (Linux for Tegra v34.1)

The JP5 DP and the ZED SDK v3.7.2 Beta are development releases and they are not intended for production, they can have issues impacting on the stability of the system.

This release supports Jetson AGX Orin Developer Kit as well as Jetson AGX Xavier series and Jetson Xavier NX series developer kits and commercial modules. JP5 DP is based on CUDA 11.4, and updates the Linux Kernel to v5.10, with Ubuntu 20.04 based root file system, and UEFI based bootloader.

We invite you to test the new SDK version and comment on this post with feedback.

When I install the “ZED_SDK_Tegra_L4T34.1_v3.7.2.run”
on my jetson AGX Orin running jetpack 5.0 DP
I get a "Pyhton failed to install " warning.

joev@ubuntu:~$ ./ZED_SDK_Tegra_L4T34.1_v3.7.2.run

Hi @joev
Please try to install the Python API from the source:

When I try to install from github repo it says “unsupported l4t/jetpack version”
This is what I installed “ZED_SDK_Tegra_L4T34.1_v3.7.2.run”
I tried it on both the Jetpack 5.0 DP and Jetpack 5.0 EA. and get same result when trying to load Python API.

joev@ubuntu:~$ python3 --version

You must compile it, not using the get_python_api.py script:

you mean do it this way

Compiling the Python API from source (only for developers of the python wrapper)

To compile the ZED SDK Python wrapper go to src folder to get the cython sources and instructions.

Note : This step is not useful for users of the wrapper, it is only meant to be used to extend the wrapper for advanced uses.

that worked. Had a little bit of problem with some permissions when compiling but now I can run the python examples.

You SDK for the Jetpack 5.0 works great.
Ran it on Jetpack 5.0 EA and Jetpack 5.0 DP
I am running it on the Jetson AGX Orin developer kit.
Your SDK is taking full advantage of the GPU on Orin. Nice.
The python examples working just fine also.
