Pixy cam 2 with nxt

Is pixy cam 2 for lego compatible with mindstorms nxt ?
Could we use it with robot c ?


Hi Thibaud,

we support Mindstorms EV3 - here’s our site about that: https://docs.pixycam.com/wiki/doku.php?id=wiki:v2:lego_wiki

We don’t have official support for Robot C, but we do provide a porting guide: https://docs.pixycam.com/wiki/doku.php?id=wiki:v2:porting_guide

Last I heard, @agulyani23 was working on a RobotC library for Pixy2…not sure where they ended up!

Hope this helps,

Hi Jesse
Thanks for your answers !
I want to use the pixy cam 2 for lego with a NXT (I haven’t EV3 device…) did you know if there is difference between the two I2C protocol (NXT / EV3) or hardware configuration ?



Unfortunately we no longer support NXT :frowning: sorry!

did you know if it’s the hardware that’s not compatible or the software ? Where is the difference on the EV3 I2C and the NXT I2C ? Maybe did you use uart to connect to the EV3 port ?

I2C is used with EV3. We stopped supporting NXT because of issues with the LEGO software that we couldn’t work around :frowning:


Hello Edward,
Thanks for your answer, I’m using RobotC to programs . Maybe it’s works better with it than with the lego software.
Which kind of issues did you find with the LEGO Software ?
