Faster: 60 frames per second (vs 50 frames per second for Pixy1)
Lower cost: the MSRP for Pixy2 is $59 (vs $69 for Pixy1.) Distributor margins have also increased with the new pricing.
New “line following” mode: many educational and hobbyist robot makers create robots that follow line paths (e.g. lines drawn on paper.) Pixy2 has custom algorithms for detecting and tracking lines. It can also decode “road signs”.
Improved software: we improved PixyMon (the companion PC/Mac/Linux application) by making it more intuitive and responsive. We also improved our Arduino and Raspberry Pi libraries by adding more examples, making them easier to understand and extending their functionality.
Redesigned Pan Tilt: The new pan tilt is smaller and faster than the Pixy1 Pan Tilt.
