M&M AUTOMATIC DISPENSER AND SORTER, “M.A.D.S.”
Introduction
The M&M sorter and dispenser robot “M.A.D.S.” dispenses and sorts out M&Ms by color. My robot is made out of Mindstorms and Technic pieces.
What Can M.A.D.S. Do
One of the best features of the robot is its color sorting ability. The robot sorts the M&Ms out by its color. The robot then puts the M&M into the right container. Then, the robot comes back to the dispenser and continues sorting out M&Ms until all the M&Ms are sorted. It’s good to have this kind of robot in case you are picky and want a specific color of M&M only.
M.A.D.S.’s Design
The robot’s design is similar to a basic bot, which is a very common robot used in Mindstorms. My robot is little different from basic bot because the robot’s front wheels are bigger. Its back wheel can turn three hundred and sixty degrees.
Sensors Used
Touch Sensor
The robot uses a touch sensor. In the program the touch sensor is a wait block which means the robot will wait for the sensor to be touched. When the sensor is touched, the program will start.
Color Sensor
The color sensor senses the color of the M&M. The two colors that the robot can sense are red and green.
Conclusion
I found making the robot was very challenging; however, I also enjoyed building the robot. The robot took me about one week to build because I made many adjustments in the program as well as in the robot. I also struggled as my program got a bug and started functioning wrong. I hope you like my report about my robot. Please let me know if you have any questions or suggestions.
Acknowledgements
I want to thank my dad for helping me out with building the robot and making the program for it and I want to thank my mom for helping me out preparing this report and the PowerPoint presentation.

Manreev’s Claw crane holds and lifts the stuff.
Claw crane can roll through maze, turn
and move around.
There are two sensors placed on it.
Color sensor and Infrared sensor.
Color sensor is used to initiate the
process and infrared sensor is used to
control and work out the direction to do
programming
Design:
Roller : These help to move
around and go forward and
backward
Claw : To hold the stuff
Color Sensor: Initiate the process
Infrared Sensor: To create
guidelines for programming
Construction:
Base: Base is setup on 4 tires using two
large motors and H frame built on base.
Claw: Gears assembly is used to
construct claw. Medium motor rotates
gears which turns other gears to lift and
close the claw grip
Wiring: Port B and Port C are used for
for large motors and Port D used for
medium motor. Color sensor is on Port
3. Infrared sensor is on Port 4
Actions:
1. Moves around in
360 angle
2. Moves left right
3. Grab and Lift stuff
4. Forward and
backward
5. Colored bar is
pushed around color
sensor to start the
robot

colored bar
Challenges:
1. Crane moves in maze
and completes 360
rotation, moves
forward and backward
2. Grab a bottle in middle
of maze from loading
zone and drop it on
unloading zone
1. Moves around in
360 angle
2. Moves left right
3. Grab and Lift stuff
4. Forward and
backward
5. Colored bar is
pushed around color
sensor to start the
robot

End the Demand for Rhino Horn & the Killing Will Stop

Poachers are killing rhinos at an alarming rate – if they continue like this rhinos will disappear from our planet within our lifetime.

Save our african landscape & save our Zebra’s

The zebra’s biggest threats are habitat loss due to ranching and farming and competition for water with livestock. Historically, there were over 15,000 Grevy’s zebras. However, there are only about 2,500 remaining today.
