PIXYBOT
Short Description: The project aims at building a robot that searches for a target of a particular hue using Pixycam. It traverse towards it avoiding all obstacles on its way and reaches the target to grab it. Once the target is acquired it looks for another position of a different particular hue than the target and traverse towards it to drop the target.

The aim of this project is to create a Interacting game using a 4wd Arduino compatible robot with Pixycam and IR sensors.The Pixybot avoids obstacles using its IR sensor mounted on a servomotor and looks for colored target through its pixy vision. The necessary PID algorithm is implemented to ease the capturing of the target using the gripper.
