OPTO-22 PAC control of a mechatronic plant
In this senior project, an Opto-22 PAC control system is used to control a SUN equipment robotic pick and place arm. The objects on the conveyor belt are analyzed by two sensors that detect the color and material of the object. The control algorithm then decides where to place the object and executes the motion path via a robotic arm with a pneumatic suction gripper.
The video to the right shows its operation, and details of the project are in the full report available below.
