Intro: 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.
Made by Daniel Ferrall and Andreas Kjøller
with great inspiration from former student Simon Larsson
Step 1: Connect
Connect the USB cable to your Computer, and your Arduino device
Step 2: Arduino Uno
This is our Arduino Uno, the original Arduino
Step 3: Groove Shield
You need a Arduino Groove Shield, and remember to connect it to the Port D7 (digital 7)
Step 4: Connector Cable
Connect the Groove Shield to the Ultrasonic Ranger v.1.0 device with the connector cable
Step 5: UltraSonic Ranger V1.0
Connect the connector cable to the port, on the Ultrasonic Ranger device.
Step 6: Put in the Code
Insert the code in your Arduino software, and if necessary adjust the distances so they will match your purpose
Step 7: Compile and Upload
Compile and uploade. Start your monitor in Arduino software and watch it count
