This work focuses on the implementation and design of a six degree of freedom, 6-DOF control of automatic color sorting and pick and place tasks for a robot arm using wireless controlling interface – Blynk apps. Based on the collaboration between the servo motor and input color sensor, this wireless control of automatic color sorting robot arm provides a powerful wireless control GUI (Graphics User Interface) and to enable the method for manual color sorting mode. The color sorting mode is performed once the mode is turned on by the user. The robot arm able to differentiate the colors of the object (input) and categorize or classify the object to the correct places automatically. It provides a stable, efficient, and precision results without any vibration of control as the main target for this project. In this work, six servo motors were used to realize the real robotic arm for industrial use. Five servos were operated to control the entire robot arm motion including the base, shoulder, and elbow as well as one servo is reserved for the positioning of the end effector. Two input variables namely TSC3200 Color Sensors & HC-SR04 Ultrasonic Sensors were employed as the input for the robot arm. The output variable mainly focused on the servo motor as the links for the robot arm to reposition and change the motion for the entire system.
