Object recognition


I am reading FAQ and trying to figure out if Pixy can distinguish 2D shapes of same color, such as card suite - hart and diamond?

Unfortunately, Pixy does not use shape information to detect objects, so this will not work. (sorry)


So no way to use the camera in playing cards recognition?

This is not something that’s currently supported… Agreed it would be cool though!

Is it possible to add that piece of code to Pixy or it is more complicated than that?

I’m not a computer vision guy, but I imagine that adding a feature like this would be a difficult task.


I thought so.
Any plans for adding that feature?

We are always open to suggestions. I’ll log this as a feature request.


Thank you!
