The Pixy2 CMUcam5 is smaller, faster and more capable than original Pixy. With the help of the new algorithms, it can detect and track lines for use with line-following robots and even intersections and “road signs” as well. By its strong sensitivity, your robot will be more flexible.
The Pixy2 CMUcam5 is the second version of Pixy. It's faster, smaller, and more capable than the original Pixy, adding line tracking/following algorithms as well as other features. Pixy2 CMUcam5 can detect lines, intersections and small barcodes, intended for line-following robots.
Here's what we've added to Pixy2 CMUcam5:
Improved framerate – 60 frames-per-second with Pixy2.
Tracking algorithms have been added to color-based object detection
Improved and simplified libraries for Arduino, Raspberry Pi, and other controllers
Integrated light source
The small, fast, easy-to-use, low-cost, readily-available vision system
Able to learn to detect objects that you teach it.
Compatible with Arduino using the included cable. Also works with Raspberry Pi, BeagleBone and similar controllers
All libraries for Arduino, Raspberry Pi, etc. are provided
C/C++ and Python are supported
Communicates via one of several interfaces: SPI, I2C, UART, USB or analog/digital output
Configuration utility runs on Windows, macOS, and Linux
All software/firmware is open-source GNU-licensed
All hardware documentation including schematics, bill of materials, PCB layout, etc. are provided
Seven color signatures
Hundreds of objects
Teach it the objects you’re interested in
Pixy2 "tracks" each object it detects
Detecting and tracking lines
Detecting Intersections and "branching"
