Pixycam 2 with mkr series arduino

Is there any way of connecting the cam to the mkr series Arduino? I’d ideally like to connect it to a mkr1010 or 1000, recognise an object and then send details to the Arduino IoT cloud.

Hey, yes there is, although I don’t know if our libraries will run on the MKR series. Looks like they use ARM processors instead of AVR like the original Arduino. We designed Pixy2 to be able to communicate with lots of different devices though, so you should be able to get it working with some legwork!

Check out our porting guide for more info - you can wire up Pixy2’s output pins directly to the pins of the MKR, and write some code to receive information about objects that Pixy sees. https://docs.pixycam.com/wiki/doku.php?id=wiki:v2:porting_guide
