In this video, we test the Pixy 2 Machine Vision camera module. It is an impressive little camera that we can use with Arduino or the ESP32 or even the Raspberry Pi and build impressive projects! The best part is that you don’t have to be a Machine Vision expert to program this board. You can teach this board new objects with a press of a button. A last, Machine Vision made easy!

The designers of the board, describe it as a vision sensor. We can’t program this board. This board is preprogrammed, it runs its own firmware and it uses advanced machine vision algorithms to report back only what is interesting. For example, I have trained the board to recognize this 3D printed Pikachu toy. Since this is a Vision Sensor we only care to know if there is a Pikachu in front of the camera, and where is it. The Pixy camera can do just that. It reports that an object is detected and some additional information about it, like the size and position in the frame using either the SPI, UART or I2C interface. I think this is a great idea and a great implementation. We don’t have to be a Machine Vision expert to build some Machine Vision applications! We can teach this camera in a few seconds, and the camera will do the hard work for us automatically!
