DIY Nespresso Capsule Detector

Submitted By:

Coffee is one true love for every heart that pumps their blood in hard work, want to escape the boredom from all tedious work or push the limits to meet the deadline. This tutorial by Arduino Project hub allows you to solve the puzzle arising out of diverse capsules, placed in a different jar and then have no idea which color to pick. To resolve the confusion of finding the correct jar containing the correct capsules, the Nespresso capsule detector is introduced.

The notion is rather effortless. All you need is to drop a capsule into the tube, and as soon as it’s absolutely dim, a distinct LED lights up. The RGB light sensor states the brightness concentration of each color channel - Red, Green, and Blue. It then refers the values to the Arduino, which distinguishes the capsule established on the pre-defined values in the code.
