Add vision to your PRIZM®-controlled robot! This adapter enables easy attachment of a Pixy2 camera to your TETRIX® robot as it includes a port for connection to a PRIZM controller with the provided sensor extension cable.
Vision sensors like the Pixy2 camera are useful for all kinds of robotics applications and tasks. Making navigation decisions, tracking and sorting objects, identifying patterns, avoiding obstacles, and detecting motion are just a few examples of how vision can enhance a robot. The Pixy2 camera can recognize objects based on color, has an advanced line-tracking algorithm that even allows for navigating intersections, and can be used as a color sensor to determine the RGB value of an object. To accomplish these and other tasks, Pixy2 provides lots of data to the PRIZM controller.
It’s easy to incorporate the Pixy2 sensor into your coding lessons using the free, downloadable Pixy2 Camera TETRIX Extension Activity, which follows the format of the PRIZM Programming Guide. Extend learning with the free downloadable Robotics Engineering Challenge. Both are available in the Resources section of this page.
The Pixy2 camera, PRIZM controller, and TETRIX set are not included.
