In the “on start” brick, initialize the AI lens and switch the function to the color recognition mode, set the neopixel lights connect to P15 port.
In the “forever” brick, set to get one image form the AI lens and judge the cards color on the image. If it reconizes the white color, we set the LED headlights and signal lights in white; if we recognizes the blue color, we set the LED headlights and signal lights in blue, by analogy, we programme with green, red, yellow and black card in the same way.
The lights change the color in accordance with the color of the cards.
