Pixy stops my robot

Added by Marco Calavaro 3 months ago

I built a robot that uses the Pixy camera to drive the engines and chase an orange ball, but after a while my Arduino mega goes into restart, also the camera because the led flashes with an white light.
When I remove the camera by arduino and run the same program I do not encounter any problems. How can I fix it?

Hello Marco,
How are you powering you Pixy. Many Arduino's have trouble powering Pixy, but Pixy can power Arduinos (which is recommended.) There is more information here:
