Abstract: Object sorting is a very common industrial application but at the same time it is a tiresome process as handling so many objects is a menial task which is not so promising in maintaining consistency and thereby arising quality issues. Object sorting, if done manually, is not only time consuming but also it seems to be an uphill task pragmatically. Nowadays amid various technological advancements, industries have become fully automated so an automated sorting system is essentially required to replace this conventional system of manual sorting knowing that this process can be made completely autonomous by properly channeling the use of technology. The main objective of this paper is to propose a smarter, intelligent and cost-effective object sorting system which categorizes the objects based on their respective color and will place them at their designated locations to minimize the cost and optimize the productivity. We have implemented the sorting system using Raspberry pi (an open-sourced Linux based board) interfaced with a camera module along with some side electronic circuitry such as servo motors and sensors. The color recognition is done using the IBM Watson visual recognition model where we have uploaded the dataset of captured images. For picking and sorting the objects, we have made use of a robotic arm that will rotate with the help of servo motor up to certain angles.
