Hi Dawid,

yes, you can run the Pan/Tilt demo that's built-in to Pixy without an external microcontroller. Instructions here: http://cmucam.org/projects/cmucam5/wiki/Run_the_Pantilt_Demo#Running-the-demo-by-using-the-button-press-sequence

Cheers,
Jesse

I know about demo, but since pixy is open source i think i could play some with it
im interested in making smth like https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J8sl3nMlYxM 2m 08s - mini following robot
i don't know how to change source code for pixy and test it, i found some .c files on github but no clue how to put them into pixy

Hello Dawid,
I'm not sure if this will help, but the Arduino API has some functions for controlling the servos that are plugged into Pixy.

Look for "setServo".

Hope this helps!
