Hello, does the new upgrade enable me to specify multiple colors that I'd like to have tracked? I'm interested in detecting green, yellow, and red to control my robot.


Hi! This is a minor-release. On the first post of this thread will be the list of changes for the release. There is a major release coming next which includes those features in the ARC. Currently, you would have to use the EZ-SDK.

I suspect we will be doing a major release sometime in the next week. Major releases are dependent on testing and delayed on bug fixes.
