Beside flashing the firmware you need a sd-card with configuration informations about the system and the wifi credentials.

There a two ways to make this settings:

  1. By hand: follow the instructions in the documentation (copy data to sd-card, setup wifi credentials by hand)
  2. Use an integrated primitiv access point to make the initial setup.
    In this case make sure to read the instructions below carefully in advance, as you have to temporarily change wifi and need a access to a file located in the internet.

Using internal access point for sd-card setup

Before starting the flash process, download the necessary file. It is a zip file, containing the initial default configuration. You can identify it by the naming. It is named `AI-on-the-edge-device__remote-setup__*.zip`. Store this file locally as you will need it later.

Flash the firmware with the WebInstaller

Instructions see above.

Connect to Device

During the first booting, the device detects that the wifi credentials as well as the configuration informations are missing.

Therefore a simple wifi access point is initiated and a simple internal web server is startet, so the device can be setup.

The naming of the wifi is "AI-on-the-edge" and you can access it without any password.

Access Point

You connect to the server with the fixed ip: http://192.168.4.1

Upload initial configuration to sd-card

Access Point

Use the `select file` and `upload` button to start the upload.
