Pixy2 image format


I want to connect a Pixy2 to a Raspberry pi (running Raspian) and then transfer images to another system (let’s says an x64 system running ubuntu Linux). The x64 system running Ubuntu would actually display the video. I would write code to run on the Pi to use DDS (DDS is a communication standard) to transfer that video between the Pi and the x64 system. So the DDS software would send data frame by frame to the other system that would display the data.

Is there a way to get the pixy2 video frames ( and know that format)?


If you are using a Raspberry Pi, we do have an example called “get_raw_frame” that might help:

It uses libpixyusb2. If you follow the installation directions here:


It will build this example and others.

Hope this helps!
