Currently working with the Sensor TCS34725 (Color light-to-digital converter with ir filter. Promising when you look at the description of the sensor. But already when doing early tests I did not get the right rgb readings. I also used a simple Python program to get the RGB readings but also there the output is similar. Like with the other development I did earlier in this blog, I also use PI4J. Now I am checking my source code and verify with the datasheet for the sensor to find out if I am missing something but since the Python program has similar results I have some doubts I do something wrong. In the meanwhile I also had contact with Adafruit support around this issue but my questions are still unanswered although I got reaction from them. See thread on https://forums.adafruit.com/viewtopic.php?f=8&t=67795 Feel free to make comments too if you have any ideas. I am open for them. I hope I can get the sensor give me the results I expect or have an explanation why I have not. Shoot if you have an idea.
See TCS34725 for more information on the sensor.
