I will start a project for an arduino robot who can pick one type of small metal part travelling on a conveyor belt.
It should be able to:
-Recognize a specific shape of an object on the conveyor belt. -Stop the conveyor belt which is powered by a stepper motor. -Identify the X-Y-coordinates on the conveyor belt. -Move an arm equipped with a vacuum suction cup to the coordinate. -Pick the part, put it in a magazine.
I won't be able to do this without your help. The robot's design is pretty much already in order, but when it comes to the programming etc. I am very novice.
Here is a drawing of the project;
Any tips and pointers, before I start? I basically have all the hardware, but which camera is more suitable? And which arduino board should I use?
