Pixy2 LEGO Quick Start

This guide will get you up and running quickly with Pixy2 and LEGO Mindstorms EV3. You must have a LEGO Mindstorms EV3 brick with a fresh set of batteries. We try to be as detailed as possible in this guide, but it helps if you are somewhat familiar with how to use your LEGO Mindstorms system.

If you have LEGO Mindstorms NXT, we're sorry, but we no longer support NXT.

Please follow this guide closely and by all means, don't skip any steps!
