Introduction: Belt Drive Production Counter [BDPC]
This is our Belt-Drive production Simulator, Have Fun!
The Wood blocks will pass through the counter sensor, and our task is to make setup with a senor system, that are able to differentiate between 3 types of wood blocks called, A,B & C, and count the number of each type of wood block.
