7-1. Project Introduction

This project mainly uses the color recognition function of HUSKYLENS to place objects of different colors recognized into the corresponding areas. For example, if the color of the recognized object is red, the object will be placed into the left area; if it is blue, place it into the right area.

Note: this project should use 1000mAh lithium battery.

7-4. Color Learning of HUSKYLENS

HUSKYLENS sensor employs the built-in algorithm to identify the ID of different colors and feed them back to the main controller board by learning and recording different colors.

The HUSKYLENS sensor is set by default to learn, recognize and track only one color, but we can set it to recognize multiple colors.

1. Choose “Color Recognition” function

Dial the function button to the left until the word "Color recognition" is displayed at the top of the screen.

Long press the “function button”to enter the parameter setting of the color recognition function. Dial the function button until "Learn Multiple" is displayed, then short press the function button, and dial to the right to turn on the "Learn Multiple" switch, that is, progress bar turns blue and the square icon on the progress bar moves to the right. Then short press the function button to confirm this parameter.

 3. Color Recognition

When encountering the same or similar color blocks, a frame with an ID will be automatically displayed on the screen, and the size of the frame is the same as the size of the color blocks.

Note: Color recognition is greatly affected by ambient light. Sometimes HUSKYLENS may misidentify similar colors. Please try to use the sensor in environments with unchanged and suitable ambient light
