In our day - to - day life we use wide range of products .The manufacturing and production of these products are done in many small scale and large scale industries. Arranging products manually make quality consistent issue. Nowadays, After manufacturing and production of the products the main difficulties are faced is the sorting of products. Arranging of products in an industry is a poor modern process, which is largely done physically. The machine which is consistent and sort products according to their size, colour, shape and weight etc. are needed in industry which helps in consuming time and human interactions. This paper gives a brief information about how products are sorted according to their containers respectively.
