Abstract

A color detecting device was designed and implemented by two students at Worcester Polytechnic Institute to satisfy their Major Qualifying Project requirement for obtaining a Bachelor of Science in Physics. This device could distinguish ten different colors, and could correct for background lighting intensity and distribution changes. Based on the detected color, the device would play a unique three-note sequence, audially indicating the detected color. The device could accurately detect the color of a sheet of 8.5” by 11” card-stock from a distance of 35 cm for all colors and background sources.
