This project is called Automated Color Sorting Robot for Recycling Application. It is a continu.ation project which is also an upgrade version to the previous project called Robotics Application in Color Recognition. The former project focus on recognition of color bars/specimens and placing it in the box. The previous project used three sensors to detect three colors particularly red, green and blue using 6-axis articulated type of robot. On the other han~ this project utilized only one sensor to detect five different colors namely yellow, orange, cyan, green and red using 4-axis SCARA (Selective Compliance Assembly Robot Arm) type of robot The main objective of this project is to detect five colors of bars and sorting them in a box accordingly with remect to the color. Yell ow color bars were set to location 1 (pallet 1 ), orange color bars were set to location 2(pallet 2) whereas cyan, green and red color bars were set to location (pallet) 3, 4 and 5 respectively. On top of that, the aim of the project is also to program the PLC so that the work carrier will stop in front of the SCARA robot for a pick and place routine. In this project, besides the robotic arm and the optical sensor, PLC and conveyer belt are parts of the equipment used. All of them are synchronously integrated to enable smooth operation of the system. The software for the SCARA robotic arm is DENSO's robot programming language while the software for the PLC is CX programmer.
