So for my whole life I have always loved collecting coins!! so I have always dreamed of making a robotic type machine that could easily sort out different coins. No not pennies from nickels and Dimes. but wheat cents from from regular pennies. If you do not know what this is, basicly pennies made before 1950ish have a couple heads of wheat on the "tales" side instead of the memorial.
Now my question is what would be the best way of roboticly distiquishing between these coins? I have been looking into robo realm, and thought it looked like a great solution to the problem. I could create a coin using probes and lines, and if the coin underneath the camera does not match the coin in the computer, It will be kept for further investigation!
I have the mechanical aspect of it down, that will be the easy part, next I want to work of the actual coin recognition.
will roborealm work for this?
NOTE: there will be a slight weight difference in these two coins because coins made before the 80's are made of copper and weigh different, but then once sorted I would still need to go through like 40 percent of the coins...
