Pixy USES a hue - -based color filtering algorithm to detect objects. Pixy calculates the hue and saturation of each RGB pixel from the image sensor and USES these as the primary filtering parameters.
Pixy remembers up to 7 company's color signatures. If you need more than seven, you can use color codes (see below).
Pixy can find just hundreds of objects at a time.
Pixy processed the an - 640 x400 image frame every 1/50ThOf a second.
You can get a to complete the update of all detected objects' positions every 20 ms.
Pixy is unique because you can physically called it what you are interested in sensing.
PixyMon is an application that runs your PC or . It allows you to see what Pixy sees, either as raw or processed video. It also allows you to configure your Pixy, set the output port and the manage color signatures. PixyMon communicates with Pixy over a standard mini USB cable.
What 's a "color code"?
A color code (CC) is two or more color tags placed close together. Pixy can detect and decode CCs and present them as special objects. The CCs are useful if you have lots of objects you want to detect and identify (i.e. for more than could be detected with the seven separate color signatures u.s).
