Headless Jetson Nano Guide & Network Forwarding From Host to Nano

This guide will cover how to set-up the Jetson Nano without a monitor, keyboard, and mouse (headless). We will also cover how to forward your network from a host device to the Nano if you do not have a Wi-Fi dongle.

If you’re interested in the traditional desktop installation of Jetson Nano (using a keyboard, monitor, and mouse), follow our guide here.

About alwaysAI

alwaysAI provides developers an easy-to-use platform to quickly build and deploy deep learning Computer Vision applications on “IoT” devices like cameras, drones, wearables, robots, and transportation units. The final goal of alwaysAI is giving devices  ‘intelligent sight’ and enable them to autonomously make smart decisions in real-time.

Using the alwaysAI platform to run a CV application on an edge device generates up to 12X in annual cost savings - as well as speed and privacy benefits - over the cloud.

In fact, alwaysAI platform supports rapid prototyping with a robust model catalog and application templates for all core Computer Vision primitives, including person detection and tracking, object detection, human pose estimation, and face detection, among other uses.

alwaysAI is located in San Diego, with our headquarters in the beautiful
Solana Beach neighborhood. We leverage San Diego’s incredible intersection of mobility, big data, and neuroscience communities – all critical to the future of artificial intelligence and computer vision.
