This paper presents the learning experience gained while designing and implementing a vision based autonomous tracked sorting robot in a mechatronics design class for its application in color based sorting, mapping and exploration missions. The different steps taken in order to reach the final system are presented. This paper focuses on the kinematic modeling of the tracked vehicle and the gripper, and discusses in details the selection process of the reboot’s components. The system was tested and results are shown using snap shots of the final demo.
