Nowadays, the technology development is unprecedentedly fast. The development of technology leads to a trend in many of the industries: automation. Automation has a lot of advantages for the industry, such as avoiding manual errors, lowering the running costs and extending the production time. The robotic arm plays an important role in automation, it has a wide range of uses in different industries. This LEGO robotic arm is inspired by the garbage sorting claw, so this LEGO robotic arm is designed for sorting. The preliminary idea is a robotic arm that can sort some object by its color, in this case is sorting the balls to the corresponding basket according to its color.
