Pixy CMUcam5 Image Sensor
The Pixy CMUcam5 Camera Sensor is the best solution for equipping your creation with a smart camera, and what’s more it won’t use all your microprocessor’s resources! This creation is as clever as it is practical, and just might become your new best friend for all your mobile robots.
Arduino- and Raspberry Pi-compatible, the Pixy CMUcam5 Camera Sensor succeeds where many other imaging sensors generally fail, because it is usually very difficult to use this kind of sensor with a simple Arduino board type processor without it becoming completely saturated.
The principle behind this camera sensor is simple, it detects only the images you really need, then sends the corresponding data to your processor via 6 different channels: UART, SPI, I2C, USB, analogue and digital!
