Project Title: Lego Sorter

When: Thursday Feb 7th @ 5:00 PM

Where: Atwater Kent 116

Project Abstract:

The goal of this project is to combine mechanical components, computer vision, and artificial intelligence to create a modular sorting device with the ability to classify and sort Lego pieces by part color and part type. The system is broken down into three modules: the serializer, the identifier, and the distributor. The serializer is responsible for creating out parts from a large batch, and then feeding out the serialized parts to the identifier. With the parts separated, the identifier uses two cameras to categorize the parts by color and type. Then the parts are passed to the sorter, where they are organized based on the metric determined by the user.
