Install VPX Agent on NVIDIA Jetson
Install our virtual software on your own NVIDIA hardware

Install JetPack 4.6.0

Flash the system image JetPack 4.6.0 (L4T 32.6.1) onto your Jetson device. Follow the documentation from NVIDIA. Depending on your hardware capability, you have the option to use an SD card or internal storage.
Make sure to match the JetPack version. Don't use newer or older versions.

Free up hard disk space on your Jetson device (optional)

Some Jetson devices don't have enough hard disk space for the VPX agent. You can run the following script which removes non-essential applications.
sudo apt update && sudo apt install curl -y
curl http://get-vpx.swarm-analytics.com/clean_jetson.sh > clean_jetson.sh && chmod +x clean_jetson.sh
./clean_jetson.sh

Install VPX Agent

With our installer script, installing the VPX agent is easy. Make sure to get the serial(s) from us in advance.
sudo apt update && sudo apt install curl -y
curl http://get-vpx.swarm-analytics.com/install-2.0.sh > install.sh && chmod +x install.sh
./install.sh
After the installation script is complete, the IoT Edge runtime will pull four docker containers as outlined below.
The device type needs to be set in SWARM Control Center. Currently, only our support team can do that. Please create a ticket, therefore.
Make sure that the container curiosity-arm64-tensorrtis used.
