Exercises for Sorting System

Main task is to write a program for the Sorting System and test it with a simulation and remote lab tools by using actuators and sensors.


  1. Write a program that moves building blocks to conveyor.
  2. Improve program to checks the representation of the blocks
  3. Improve program to sort out metal blocks


Single functions to be solved:

  • move pneumatic cylinder forward and backward

  • check block’s presence with optical sensor

  • start conveyor to move blocks

  • check material inductive sensors (is it metal)

  • actuate solenoid to push block down
