Pixy2 camera via CircuitPython?

by DrNo on Sat Oct 23, 2021 10:49 am

Hello Friendly Forumites,

I'd like to attach a Pixy2 camera to a Feather M4 Express to read the position, etc., of detected objects. However, there does not seem to be direct support for this device via CircuitPython.

Am I missing support somewhere? Should I just convert the M4 to an Arduino-compatible, as it seems there's better support for it in that way (and is that true?)?

Thank you very much.

The Pixycam support libraries are maintained by the Pixycam folks. It looks like they do have a Python implementation, but I don't know if it is compatible with CircuitPython.

They do have a support forum and may be able to give you a better answer:

Yes, I've seen that, but have not been able to get it to work (it could just be that I'm a Python newbie).

Maybe I have to switch to Arduino code.

Thank you.

The Arduino code is known to work, so that may well be the easier way to go.
