I am trying to use pixycam to detect a 3 colored tag through color connected components the size of the tag is 6x8 cm but pixycam can only detect it at a distance of 1.3 m and cant detect it past that distance while it said on the pixy guide/documentation it it can detect an object upto 3 meter’s. I am using the latest pixy 2.1 and the lighting conditions are also ideal can somebody tell me what can i do to increase this length
It’s all about the size and distance as a ratio. You can detect an object miles away (in theory) if it’s big enough, and fail to detect an object fairly close if it’s too small.
Bear in mind with color tags, it’s the sizes of each tag element that needs to large enough, not the color tag as a whole.
To get the most distance, the color signatures need to be fairly accurate. This page can help:
Hope this helps
