I have a Raspberry Pi 3B+ and am trying to connect the Pixy2 to it via USB. I have successfully installed the drivers and PixyMon2 on the Pi, and PixyMon2 detects it successfully.
The problem I am having is that if I connect the pan/tilt wires to the camera, then the camera doesn’t work on my Pi at all. It just shakes back and forth every half-second. My other devices (a USB mouse and a keyboard) suddenly stop working when it’s plugged in. I can see the light on my mouse flicker on and off in sync with the shaking camera; it seems as if it’s trying to turn on but cannot. The same occurs with the mouse and keyboard unplugged; the Pixy2 just shakes. All I have to do to get the Pixy2 to work on my Pi is to disconnect the pan/tilt wires from the camera. But then, of course, I won’t be able to use pan/tilt with my Pi.
The pan/tilt works perfectly fine when I connect the Pixy2 to my desktop computer. My conclusion is that my Raspberry Pi doesn’t have enough power to support the Pixy2 and pan/tilt at the same time. But I am not 100% certain. I was wondering if I could receive some assistance on this matter. Is there a possible remedy to this?
