Sending a frame from pixy via. USB


I am trying to do traffic sign recognition with the Pixy cam and an Arduino Uno (controls the car). After having identified an object (a traffic sign) i need to send either the detected area or the entire frame to a windows PC through USB or WiFi. This is needed for further processing/identification on the image.

Is there an easy way to get a frame from the pixy camera through either USB, WiFi or a third option? Any libraries that can be used on the windows PC that allow easy retrieval of entire frames or detected regions?


Pixy is usually used connected to a controller like and Arduino, or a Linux-based controller (Raspberry Pi, etc). As such, we don’t have official client support for Windows (sorry). We do have client support for Linux, and it supports getting raw frames.
