Abstract

The objective of the project was to design and build an Automatic Color Ball Sorter. This was done with only three main parts; a microchip, a color sensor, and a few micro motors. The parts where combined in a way that would allow objects of three different color to pass by the sensor and be separated into their own compartments using the microchip and the motors. A program was built and downloaded onto the microchip that enabled this process. The results that the sensor gets from reading the different colors will determine where the motor will place each object. It was very important to design a case that will hold the parts together and also allow the balls to fluidly pass by the sensor and then be fed into their proper containers. This was fairly time consuming project but it also made for an interesting task.
