I would like to see the Pixy2 camera on a robot car (with a Arduino) and learn the code to go with it.

There actually is a "PixyBot" project that does pretty well exactly this - is that what you're asking for?

And thats where you come in to the picture - learn to use pixy2 - learn to control a robot car and bingo you have a nice project to combine the 2 which its all about.   If you want a more spoon fed project to follow you may find something of interest in this link showing pixy2 projects projects

?

I have the cars and the pixy2 - the Arduino,

Pixymon uses a "wire" to connect to my laptop to see the what the camera is viewing, 

how to overcome this I guess is the question

This is my dilemma

the dronbotworkshop episode shows you how to use pixy2 with the arduino.  However the PixyMon program has to be installed on an operating system such as windows or linux.  So to use the PixyMon program you could get hold of a Raspberry Pi with runs a version of linux and use the Rpi to control you robot car too.   There is no need to use the PixyMon program to make use of pixy2 in the Arduino.

with pixymon running on your linux, widows or mac computer your configure (train) the pixy2 to recognise objects, colours or ridiculous moustaches, etc and this is then stored on the pixy2.   The pixy2 is hooked up to an arduino (or whatever) and by using the pixy2 library in your arduino program (sketch) your arduino can be programmed to be alerted when the object you configured previously is detected.  Your program then can instruct the arduino to take the desired action like report the fact of detection to the serial interface and/or make your robot car turn to the left and/or make your robot car toot its horn.

I could be wrong, but it sounds like what he wants is an RC car with a camera
