This research project documents the construction of a laser barrier as an object sensor for easy implementation in generic pick-and place robotic procedures
The main goal is to design an inexpensive plug-and-play object sensor for generic gripping and placing robots. The aim is that after reading this paper everyone can build this sensor on a laser barrier. The focus of this work is the communication between an Arduino and a computer.

One possible area of application is the 20.000 BLOCKS project, where our robot Ginger — a UR10 robot arm — recreates buildings designed by Minecraft players as models.
