Abstract

This paper presents a unique design and development of Automated Pepper Sorting Machine (APSM) for industrial application. The design consists of several mechanical and electrical components such as motors, a micro-controller, hoper mechanism, suction tube, belt and pulley. In addition, a gantry crane is used in order to move the suction pipe across the conveyor belt to the exact position of the defective pepper. Furthermore, a camera is attached to the machine to identify defective paper based on colour of the defective pepper. The main purpose of this design is to automate sorting procedure for the pepper industry and to optimize its work efficiency.
