Pixy2 is smaller, faster and more capable than the original Pixy. Like its predecessor, Pixy2 can learn to detect objects that you teach it just by pressing a button. Plus, Pixy2 has new algorithms that detect and track lines for use with line-following robots. The new algorithms can detect intersections and "road signs" as well. The road signs can tell your robot what to do, such as turn left, turn right, slow down, and more. Amazingly, Pixy2 does all of this at 60 frames-per-second, so your robot can be fast, too. Pair it with the Pan/Tilt kit (P/N: 2278295) so your Pixy cam can "look around".

Connect Directly to Arduino or Raspberry Pi
No need to futz around with tiny wires. Pixy2 comes with a special cable to plug directly into an Arduino and a USB cable to plug into a Raspberry Pi, so you can get started quickly. No Arduino or Raspberry Pi? No problem! Pixy2 has several interfaces (SPI, I2C, UART, and USB) and simple communications, so you get your chosen controller talking to Pixy2 in no time at all.
