    Hello fellas,

    Our group is aiming to make a Sorting Machine that can recognize the size/edges of the product.


    Can anyone guide us? Thank you so much.

    Thanks for your attention. ;)

    Ok here is our plan.
    1. We are planning to have a microcontroller like Arduino, Raspberry Pi.
    2. We want to seprate only two product the Hexagon & Circle.
    3. From feeder the product will pass through slant narrow and go to the rounding table.
    4. In rounding table where we want to place sensors or any that can determine/recognize the shape of the product.
    5. And lastly it will now separate the product.


    Hope you can guide/help us to our project. Thanks a lot.

    Industrial sorting machines for grains, fruit, rock ore and other materials use machine vision cameras to recognize the desired objects.

    They often drop the stuff down a slanted chute, with a linear array of controlled air jets at the bottom, these deflect the rejects to a different bin.

    Your system will be slower, (cheaper) you can use a simpler mechanical sorting mechanism that allows your slow cheap computer to find the right shape and sort it in time.

    Nevermind... I had a few responses, but I think I was on the wrong path.
