Pixy2 problems with moths


#1

I’m completely new to Pixy and am trying to recognize small moths caught in a sticky trap. The moths are gray/black on a white background but i can’t seem to recognize them. Any tips for a newbie?

Hello,
Pixy’s color algorithm needs a decent color hue to detect (sorry):

You might consider using the getRGB interface, which will tell you if certain regions of the image have changed color/intensity:
