Can we use Pixy2 CMUcam5 STILL

Dear TC members,

First of all, we appreciate your significant contribution for RoboCup.
I have one question.
As you may know, Pixy2, camera device, was released as the second version of Pixy last year.
Unfortunately line tracking/following algorithms seems to be added from this version, not specifically designed for RoboCup junior Line.

Our concern is whether it infringe of the rule 2.2.2 or not.
Can we use this device on rescue line robot?
Team will make the original algorithm although
Thank you for your support in advance.


For your reference, See followings for details,

2.2.2 Teams are not permitted to use any commercially produced robot kits or sensors components that are specifically designed or marketed to complete any single major task of RoboCupJunior Rescue. Robots that do not comply will face immediate disqualification from the tournament. If there is any doubt, teams should consult the Technical Committee (TC) prior to the competition.

This was asked in 2019 and we’re just trying to make sure its still valid. If our code is hand written can we use pixy2?

Hi @Kerem,

the same stuff I wrote in this post: Use of Huskylens for line tracking, applies here. You can use any camera you like, but only use raw values from each pixel as output to come up with your own algorithms.
Using any extra preprogrammed features is forbidden.

Best of luck,
