Smartphone controlled colour sorting conveyor system
First post on the forum, big fan of Drone Bot Workshop!
Here is my college project that I recently finished, it's a variant of the colour sorting conveyor belts you may have seen on youtube. My spin on the original idea of a colour sorting conveyor was to add wireless control and a HMI type status screen. All the mechanical side was handmade from sheet aluminium and i even designed a custom PCB to make all the connections easier. Control was done via an ESP32 and the Blynk smartphone app took care of most of the wireless aspect. Programming was done in the Arduino IDE. My theme of the project was sort of industrial automation as that's a big interest of mine. It's not perfect and if i was to do it again, there are definitely changes and additions I would make but it worked well enough for me. Hope you like it! Let me know what you think. Thanks.
