Signature Labels tab

The Signature Labels tab allows you to label objects that are detected by Pixy2. To bring up this tab, you must be running the color_connected_components program by selecting it in the Program menu, and then bringing up the Configure Dialog (click on the gear icon or select File➜Configure). Now select the Signature Labels tab under Pixy Parameters.

Note that the signature labels are stored on Pixy2. So if you set some signature labels and then plug your Pixy into another computer running PixyMon, the labels will be there.

To label a signature, simply type in the label and click on Apply or OK.

Detected objects that match this signature will then be labeled in PixyMon.

Labeling color codes

Labeling color coded objects requires typing commands into the console, since there are thousands of possible color codes. You can bring up the console by selecting Console in the View menu. Start by pressing the stop button.


Then type in the command cc_setLabel followed by the color code number (in octal) followed by the label. Note, if you want spaces in your label, use underscores instead. And don't forget to hit return!

Your label will then show up in the Signature Labels Tab as you'd expect, and any objects that match your color code will be labeled with the label you specified. (yay!)
