Can Pixy tell the difference between the bumper and the ball

We are an FRC Team. As we all know , in this year , the cargo has two colors, one is blue, the other is red. However , the robot’s bumper is also red or blue. And our team wan’t to use Pixy to do the game piece detect. Can the Pixy tell the difference between the ball and the bumper?

Can anybody help me?

Hi Mendax,

I’m not familiar with the specifics of this year’s challenge, but I can tell you that Pixy detects objects based on color. It will detect multiple objects of the same color, and report them all as individual objects, but unless you have some other strategies like using color codes, it’s difficult to tell which object is which.
