Comparing the effectiveness of a light sensor and a touch sensor
It is observed that the light sensor detected and counted all 100 boxes at all 3 different speeds. The touch sensor was effective in the beginning but as the speed of the conveyor belt increased, the friction between the boxes and the touch sensor slowed the movement of the boxes and caused a pile up on the conveyor belt.
|Sensor||Boxes counted at different speeds|
|2 m/m||5 m/m||8 m/m|
