WOOD BLOCK SORTER
April 14, 2020
The wood block sorter sorts wooden (kapla) blocks by color (black, blue, green, yellow, red and white). The machine consists of the EV3 brick, 2 large motors, 1 medium motor and a color sensor. You start by placing the blocks in the provided bin. When you press the button, the machine starts. First, the color sensor scans the next block, then a bar slides it to another compartment. The box rotates to the correct position and the gears slide it to the correct side. When the color sensor no longer detects blocks, the machine stops and waits for new blocks to enter the box.
