The Card Dealer : A card shuffling and dealing robot.

University essay from KTH/Skolan för industriell teknik och management (ITM)

Abstract: The Card Dealer is a machine designed to replace the dealer role in card games. The dealer is either a person hired to only deal the cards, usually found in casinos, or one of the players participating in the game. The Card Dealer will allow the players to fully concentrate on the game instead of having to deal cards. In this thesis it is explored how to build a machine that is able to shuffle a deck of cards to a satisfying degree of randomness, and then deal a correct amount of cards to the correct amount of players. This is achieved through the use of three motors. One motor shuffling the deck, another rotating the whole machine around the z-axis and a third ejecting a single card to the player.
