TrashTrek 2015

Robot – ‘The Gobbler’
It was named the gobbler because it consumed so many Lego pieces and had to go on a diet to shed weight.

Project – ‘Smart Trash’

We came up with the idea of Smart Trash to solve the growing problem of batteries which can be extended to use on all e-Waste. Smart Trash enables detection of batteries at the point of sorting at the Materials Recovery Facility (MRF). This would be achieved by requiring embedding RFID tags in batteries.  

We built a prototype using an Arduino board and RFID sensors to demonstrate feasibility.
