Please describe your issue below:

Hello, I want to use VIM3’s NPU on Android env.
I read the docs about running Android NPU demo app.
So I installed the demo app v1.1.

But, whatever I model clicked(yolov3, v2, …), it only shows the camera screen and nothing is recognized.
And the logcat via adb says,

linker : CANNOT LINK EXECUTABLE “/vendor/bin/hw/android.hardware.neuralnetworks@1.1-service-ovx-driver”: library “” not found

  1. Why does the official image not included NPU driver’s dependencies?
  2. How should I solve it?
