Thanks for your interest in the Intel® RealSense™ Platform.
Unfortunately, a USB 3.0 connection is necessary in order to use the R200. I would encourage you to read these threads below and see the other recommended embedded boards.
Please beware of which board you choose in terms of power, since these cameras need a lot of it.
Let us know if any questions come up, have a nice day!
Thank you Jose,
I have an up-board I can use, but I just wanted to make sure it wasn't possible to interface with a smaller micro controller such as the Edison.
I am building an autonomous quadcopter, and I already have everything (IMU, optical flow camera, pwm driver) interfaced and working using the Intel Edison on a 250mm frame -- It would be amazing if I could also put the R200 on this frame and have an autonomous 250mm drone, but since it will require the up-board I will probably have to move everything to a larger quadcopter.
Thanks again for the info,
