The Pixy camera has powerful image processing capabilities that can track objects by color. It can track dozens of objects simultaneously and report their locations to the Arduino in real-time. The built-in pan/tilt servo control is fast enough to track a bouncing ball.
The Zumo robot is a low-profile tracked robot platform designed for an Arduino controller. It uses two 75:1 precision micro metal gearmotors to drive extra grippy silicone rubber treads. Zumo has traction and torque to spare, with a top speed of approximately 2 feet per second (60 cm/s). This makes it a nimble little bot that can zip along at high speed and still turn on a dime.
Putting all this together with an Arduino Leonardo processor, you can build yourself a fun and responsive little bot that will chase objects or follow you around like a playful pet!
The Pixy Pet Robot is simple to build with no soldering required. With just a few common tools, you can complete the assembly in under an hour!
We are angry, frustrated, and in pain because of the violence and murder of Black people by the police because of racism. We are in the fight AGAINST RACISM. George Floyd was murdered, his life stolen. The Adafruit teams have specific actions we’ve done, are doing, and will do together as a company and culture. We are asking the Adafruit community to get involved and share what you are doing. The Adafruit teams will not settle for a hash tag, a Tweet, or an icon change. We will work on real change, and that requires real action and real work together. That is what we will do each day, each month, each year – we will hold ourselves accountable and publish our collective efforts, partnerships, activism, donations, openly and publicly. Our blog and social media platforms will be utilized in actionable ways. Join us and the anti-racist efforts working to end police brutality, reform the criminal justice system, and dismantle the many other forms of systemic racism at work in this country, read more @ adafruit.com/blacklivesmatter
