Embedded visual odometry(VO) implementation may provide a low-power, small-size alternative or compan-ion positioning system to the Global Navigation Satellite Systems(GNSS) and Inertial Navigation System(INS). As the em-bedded systems are memory scarce, in this paper, a new low-memory footprint neural network-based visual odometry method that is implementable on embedded systems is introduced and evaluated. To deploy the neural network, MAX78002 [1] artificial intelligence microcontroller has been chosen as the embedded platform. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first study that provides a microcontroller-based visual odometry solution.
