How can i detect black shapes and give them custom labels


i need a camera and a software that can detect simple black shapes (i.e. square, circle. rectangle, and triangle) and give option to give the shapes custom names . after reading a post, i was curious if the camera could work with non complex objects and shapes despite the fact that its RGB only. if it not possible at all, do you know any other cameras that can fulfill this need


Hello John,
Pixy’s object detection uses color/hue. Unfortunately, detecting black objects of particular shapes isn’t something Pixy can do (sorry). You might consider writing your own image processing algorithm using OpenCV and a web camera (for example) or Raspberry Pi.



thank you very much for your help. i’ll definitely look into it
