After a successful KickStarter campaign Charmed Labs their PIXY camera - this is version 5 (CMUCam5) of their successful CMUCam range. The Pixy though is much more that a mere camera, it is a fast, easy to use Vision Sensor which can quickly be "taught" to find and identify objects, and it connects directly to Arduino and other micro controllers via UART serial, SPI, iic, digitial output or analog output.

PIXY2 has just now been release - this is shown in the above video .... new features added to the PIXY2 include:

  • 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

as well as the features previously available within the Pixy, the main features being:

  • 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.
