* *Color code multiplier* The signatures associated with color codes can be more inclusive because false positives are less likely.  Also, the color swatches used with color codes may be somewhat reflective, which requires a more inclusive signature.  The *Color code multiplier* is multiplied by the corresponding *Signature range* (in the "Signature Tuning Tab":/projects/cmucam5/wiki/Signature_Tuning_Pane) to create the signature range for the color code.

* *Signature teach threshold* This parameter applies when you are teaching Pixy a signature using the button-push method.  It allows you to adjust how inclusive Pixy is when determining which pixels are part of the object you are trying to teach.  You can find more information "here":/projects/cmucam5/wiki/Some_Tips_on_Generating_Color_Signatures_2.
