Hello, I am looking to construct an Automatic Card Sorter. It’s purpose; to scan a bulk amount of Magic the Gathering trading cards and sort them into designated boxes (First sorting cycle would be by color, then second by set name) so it would need to go through as many cycles as it needs to complete the sorted state
I have uploaded a quick sketchup of the structural parts to get a better visual representation.
Basically my current question is, what would I use to connect a stepper motor, and other low torque hobby motors to a component/module capable of running code, the code being scan, sort, and export the data to a database.
I should have mentioned this already, there is a very handy function on the phone app TCGPlayer that is capable of scanning(Identifying color and set) and can exporting said data to a database, I have an old samsung s7 edge that can be used for the scanner. (Can a phone be used to control a servo motor?)
From that point, I should be able to use a pre-written string of code to sort them based on set from the collected data, I am guessing this set of functions can be performed with a raspberry pi?
Many thanks for all thoughts and help,
