Re: Help with the Adafruit colour sensor

I hope that the lack of further replies means that you have got your colour sensor working. Either way, please let us know your progress. We've started working on it today but we have some errors when we try to run that example. on Adafruit_TCS34725_Example.py Traceback (most recent call last): Fil...

Re: Help with the Adafruit colour sensor

Great pictures, the connections are correct. you need to copy the files onto the pi and run them on the Pi, specifically you want to run Adafruit_TCS34725_Example.py sudo python Adafruit_TCS34725_Example.py but you need all three python files to be present in the same directory in the Pi as the exa...

Re: Help with the Adafruit colour sensor

Could you post a picture of your connections? http://i63.tinypic.com/53oggy.jpg http://i63.tinypic.com/mhewjc.jpg The ground(black wire) is connected to another ground from the motors but those aren't connected on the picture. The white, gray and purple wires are from the sensor. Have you copied th...

Re: Help with the Adafruit colour sensor

Hello again, It's been a while. We've tried a lot of things with the sensor, but we can't get it working. We can't figure out with the tutorials how to get the RGB values. Al those tutorials are working with an Arduino and they say nothing about the pi. And as I said, we are beginners with the raspb...

Re: Help with the Adafruit colour sensor

Thanks!

I think we know enough for now. I'm going to order the sensor but because we live in the Netherlands it will take 1/3 weeks till we have it. So when we have it and we need any help, I will let you know :D

Thanks for everything!

Re: Help with the Adafruit colour sensor

Thanks for your reply. I have a few questions. Does the sensor goes directly into the Pi? Don't we need something like a breadboard? In the tutorial where they use the Arduino they use: VIN, GND, SDA and SCL. And you use the 3V3 instead of the VIN. Is this special for the Raspberry? And as last. I'v...

I'm currently working on a school project with some friends. We want to make a Raspberry Pi robot which will follow a line taped on the ground. We came up with the idea to use a colour sensor. If it sees a specific colour,the robot will go forward and left and right etc. We already have a simple rob...
