Let this robotic system sort your LEGO bricks for you

Let this robotic system sort your LEGO bricks for you

from arduino.cc

If you don’t enjoy sorting LEGO, you will be pleased to know that students at Bruface – or the Brussels Faculty of Engineering in Belgium – are working on an automated machine to do it for you!



The team’s prototype device detects brick colors on a conveyor belt and picks them up via a gantry-style gripper assembly. It then places each piece in an individual bin by color using a TCS34725 sensor, saving a step if you’d like to keep that castle wall consistent.



As of now the Arduino-powered apparatus consists of several elements — including feeding system, carrier, gripper, and control panel — that work well individually, but haven’t been fully integrated as a whole. The project will hopefully be completed this January, which should be impressive based on the current clips.

If you're interested in making your own version, PMD Way has you covered with a huge range of parts including Arduino Uno compatible boardsmotor driver shields, stepper motors, and more.
