Installing MRL / OpenCV, JavaCPP on Jetson TX2

This is specific for the Jetson TX2 and may not be helpful to people running on other development boards...

First off the Jetson TX2 comes with 30GB eMMC for storage and most of it is used up.

I was able to add a 500GB SSD as the boot drive which I will cover in another blog post.

The one I am using currently has Ubuntu 16.04 running on it.

This was a minimal install so there may be things that you have already loaded.

Before this I was able to load MRL but OpenCV did not work.

Now that being said, how do I make this thing work in MyRobotLab?


OMG ! .. Lucky B-Day Boy !

WOOHOO !! new toys to play with already !

And tried to represent it accurately in an OpenCVFilterPointCloud.java  with the following code
