Abstract: Sorting is the process of systematic selection and arrangement. Sorting involves intense labor work. The use of Artificial Intelligence in recognizing the objects by their color makes the process of sorting completely autonomous. Modern Industries require modern solutions for the problems encountered during the process of sorting. With the advent of Artificial Intelligence, the machines that can recognize an object by their color proves to be a primary solution that can completely automate the process of sorting. This paper presents a five-axis arm mounted on a robotic model that makes use of a color sorting technique. It performs pick and place operations in real-time. The color sorting technique detects the color of the object in the frame captured by the camera. The frame size is used to detect the position of the object in the real world. The robot model moves according to the frame size of the object. Raspberry Pi microcontroller drives the servo motor and dc motor to move the five-axis arm and the robotic model to sort and perform pick and place operation based on their color. The color sorting algorithm is based on the Hue-Saturation-Value model. This model finds its application in places where sorting is done based on color and not the object itself. For example, it is used to sort objects like different colored clothes, food items, etc. It also finds its application in very large scale warehouses such as Amazon, Flipkart, etc which focusses on smart automated warehouses that reduce the labor requirements.
