  • If your hardware connections are correct but your GUI freezes every time you open it, try disabling your WiFi and run the GUI.
  • If disabling the WiFi connection doesn't fix it, then try using a different USB port or USB cable.
  • When successful connection happens the GUI will immediately pop up a window asking for selecting the on board image sensor. There are 2 sensors the Aptina ASX340C and Omnivision OVM7692 present on board. If you are not seeing this box, then it is possibly because the Virtual Com Port, UART to USB driver (http://www.ftdichip.com/Drivers/VCP.htm) did not install properly. For first time users, the driver will be automatically be downloaded from the web (ensure that your PC is connected to the web) and be installed on the PC. You can check in the "Device Manager" of your PC to check if the driver is installed properly.

    • Go to Control Panel -> System -> Advanced System Settings
    • Go to Hardware Tab
    • Click on Device Installation Settings
    • Ensure this is set to Yes, do this automatically.
      After doing these steps, to check if the UART drivers have been installed correctly navigate to Device Manager and verify that the following device appears - (USB Serial Port COMxx)
