This paper describes size segregation of materials using automated system. It is difficult to segregate objects by their size manually at industrial level. An experiment has been carried out in order to sort objects by height by using two IR sensors along with the conveyor belt. The IR sensor senses the object kept in the conveyor belt. After sensing the object the motor will be started automatically. The conveyor belt carries the object along the wooden setup. The wooden pieces attached with the setup sorts the object by their height. Pieces of plastic, wood, metallic materials are separated by height out from proposed work.
