Here we present our first tests with the Pixy camera, a device capable of detecting the colour of the objects, and to track their position.
Until a short time ago, it was really difficult to develop applications able to take advantage of artificial vision algorithms, and most of all by using systems with limited hardware resources.
Luckily, however, things have changed now: in addition to the various open source frameworks that help developers to easily implement even the most complex algorithms, complete peripherals are spreading, be it for the hardware part (providing the acquisition of images coming from the outside world), or for the software part (able to analyze and read such images). With such peripherals it is possible to create applications provided with artificial vision, in a really simple way.
