I just ordered my 1st Pixy2 Camera. Can’t wait for it to get here.
I am building a BULK Lego sorting machine for myself, and decided to try out the Pixy2 as the camera for it. The plan is to use the Pixy2 to drive servo motors via Arduino or a Pi to direct the different colored parts into different shutes based on color.
My problem is… there are over 70 different colors of Legos. I need the camera to detect more than the 7 default color profiles… Is there any way to add MORE color profiles without using the “color code” system ?? It seems it should be pretty easy to get the camera to detect more then only 7 colors ???
If not… how about “Color Groups” ?? I have:
5 different shades of blue… Have a group called “Blues”
6 different shades of Orange… Have a group called “Oranges”
Then my next idea/question… Can the camera recognize 5 different shades of Blue ?? And make Color Tags " Blue" - “Sky Blue” - “Royal Blue” - “Sand Blue” etc ??
Then it becomes a 2 step process… Sort by “Color Group” then by “Actual Color”
Here is my actual Color Chart
