Whats the latest Pixy LEGO block software?


#1

Hi,
The website has lego-Pixy download named lego_pixy-1.1.4.zip with pixy.ev3b inside.

In two posts you supplied pixy(13).ev3b and pixy (15).ev3b software to fix some bugs.

Does the 1.1.4 version include these bug fixes ?
Which is the “best” most up to date version to use ?

I’m using pixycam1 with an EV3 to detect a single 3 digit colorcode…and I’m finding it does return the color codes to the LEGO software correctly everytime, whereas the pixymon has no trouble detecting the 3 digit color code ? (so my camera usage is OK)

(By 3 digit color code I mean I have 3 colors next to each other which return a 3 digit code)

Thanks for your help in clarifying which is the latest pixy lego block to use.

Hi.
I am only interested in the lego block software for Pixy 1.
The software you mentioned are specifically for pixy2 only.
Please advise which is the latest and best lego block version for pixy1 for lego.
Thanks.

Hello,
I have a problem with the Pixy 2 and the Lego Ev3. When I plug the Pixy Cam to the Ev3, the Pixy Cam gets no power. Furthermore I get only wrong values from the sensor. I hope you can help!
Thanks for your help

Hello Vinz,
Are you using a pixy1 LEGO cable, or perhaps your own cable?

Hello Vinz,
The Pixy2 cable is slightly different, unfortunately, because we had to remove one of the ground signals. Please refer to this page.

Hi Edward,
Thanks for your reply.
Can I just clarify them that the downloads area software you referred to is better than the pixy(13).ev3b and pixy (15).ev3b software you have mentioned previously ?
Thanks again.
