Pixy is still available, but we recommend Pixy2. It’s smaller, faster and smarter than the original Pixy!
“This is the single most important robotics product since the Arduino.” — Ted Macy, Robot Magazine
Robot vision made easy
Pixy is a fast vision sensor for DIY robotics and similar applications. You can teach Pixy an object just by pressing a button. Use Pixy for lots of different applications! It’s capable of tracking hundreds of objects simultaneously and only provides the data you are interested in.
Connect directly to Arduino
No need to futz around with tiny wires – Pixy comes with a cable to plug in to Arduino, so you can quickly get started. No Arduino? No problem! Pixy has a multitude of ways to talk to other devices.
Simplify your programming
To get you up and running as fast as possible, we offer free software libraries for Arduino, Raspberry Pi and BeagleBone Black. Pixy also makes your life easier by only sending the data you’re looking for. For example, if you teach Pixy a purple object, you will only receive data (X-Y coordinates, size, and unique ID) about purple objects.
Open software and hardware
Want to dig deeper? Pixy is entirely open-source (hardware, firmware and software). We offer a helpful wiki, and you can always ask a question on our forums.
Pixy is a collaboration between Charmed Labs and Carnegie Mellon University.
