Color Tracking Questions

Hi all, I just got my ez-robot and figure a first good project would be a boxbot. I got it all going and everything seems to work correctly except the color tracking on the wireless camera. No matter what setting I seem to put it to it does the complete opposite. Lets say I put red color tracking on. If I hold a red ball in front of it is turns the opposite direction. I then tried a different color same thing. I adjusted increment settings same thing. I then switched it to facial tracking and got the same issue. Any ideas what I could be doing wrong? Any help would be much appreciated. Thank you.

Try inverting/reversing your servo in the settings.


@gearbox you made a boxbot? Can you post pics?:)


ok so I tried to invert the settings but still didnt work. Hey DJ, love this product a lot. Here is a picture of my boxbot. This project was really fun to do.

Any ideas on this issue guys?


Use the INVERT option in the Camera's CONFIG menu. There is an invert for both Vertical and Horizontal - choose the one that is right for you. Deselect the option if the servo is moving the wrong way.
