Taking a picture through Pixy

Added by Travis Tatsch 4 months ago

I've just recently gotten a Pixy camera and was thinking about using it to try and take pictures with use in a machine learning dataset. I've found this post from a few years ago about how it was not supported with an Arduino. Is this something that would be plausible with a Raspberry Pi or other microcontroller? Or possibly even an ordinary *nix system? For context, I'm using the 1.3 revision of the Pixy and do not yet have a microcontroller dedicated to the Pixy, although I do have a spare Arduino as well as Raspberry Pi 3 model B

Hello Travis,
Getting pictures/raw frames from Pixy is possible over USB using libpixyusb, which runs on a Raspberry Pi (or other Linux controller). Here is a thread that talks about grabbing raw frames: http://cmucam.org/boards/9/topics/5106?r=7910

Hope this helps!

Edward,

Awesome! Thank you for the link to that thread. I'll delve into the documentation for that.
