Pixy2 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. 

Here's what we've added to Pixy2:

  • Pixy2 detects lines, intersections and small barcodes, intended for line-following robots

  • Improved framerate – 60 frames-per-second

  • Tracking algorithms have been added to color-based object detection

  • Improved and simplified libraries for Arduino, Raspberry Pi and other controllers

  • Integrated light source

And of course, Pixy2 does everything that the original Pixy can do:

  • Small, fast, easy-to-use, low-cost, readily-available vision system

  • Learns to detect objects that you teach it

  • Connects to Arduino with 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

Typical Functions Overview

  • Seven color signatures

  • Hundreds of objects

  • Teach it the objects you’re interested in

  • Pixy2 "tracks" each object it detects

  • color code

  • Detecting and tracking lines

  • Detecting Intersections and "branching"
