Robotics application in colour recognition using fiber optic cabled sensors interfaced with robot controller and Programmable Logic Controller (PLC) is discussed in this paper. The sensors send input signals to the robot controller and the specified program will be executed with respect to the triggered input. The aim of this research work is to recognize colour by pin point detection and sorting of object specimens with respect to their colour attributes, which includes hue, saturation and luminance level. The controller programs were designed to control the robot and the conveyor belt independently parallel to each other via relays, to be synchronized during operation. Finally, the calculative results were verified experimentally and the real time implementation was carried out. It can be observed how controllers are integrated and synchronized in a system to perform a desired operation without conflict using real time applications such as chemical, pharmaceutical, agricultural, food industries and even recycling.
