Abstract
An experiment has been carried out in order to sort objects by height by using a 2 link robotic arm along with a conveyor. The conveyor belt carries the object to be sorted and the simulation of a production line is done by the conveyor belt. The flexibility of the system is increased because systems sensing capability permits the object to be anywhere on the conveyer belt. The source to find the possibility of such automated sorting system is the combination of sensor system and hardware along with the software. The concern regarding the use of IR (Infrared) range sensor in determining the location of the object is discovered by testing it for repeatability. Thus, in other aspects except this the system proves to work well and it has some possible uses where automated sorting is preferred. A process in which a finished product is produced much faster than handcrafting-type methods by adding the parts to the product in a chronological order is called as assembly line. The important part of an assembly line is conveyor belt system which performs the function of conveying goods from one place to another. In this investigation an improvised conveyor belt is developed which separates material according to its size and return the unwanted goods outward. Infrared sensors have certain advantages such as consumption of electricity is low and provides longer life.
