From Daniel West:
Over two years in the making, this is the world’s first Universal LEGO Sorting Machine, an AI-powered automated sorting machine that is capable of recognizing and sorting any LEGO part that has ever been produced*.
To build the machine, Daniel used around 10,000 Lego bricks, six Lego motors and nine servo motors to power the conveyor belts. He also used a camera to scan the bricks, sending an image of each piece to a Raspberi Pie computer that streams the data to a laptop, which feeds the information to a neural network that then sorts the pieces and indicates in which sorting bin the current brick should go into. Brilliant, isn’t it?
