Waste Management Machine

Waste Management Machine
As every year passes, the concern over waste increases steadily. Based on incomplete reports from its parties, the Basel Convention estimated 338 million tonnes of waste was generated in 2001. Though above-mentioned estimate is not officially correct it gives us an idea that how much waste we produce each year.

We all know about conditions near the waste sites and dumps, due to these difficult conditions, it is not always possible for humans to do all tasks(collection, transport, processing or disposal, managing and monitoring of waste materials ) involved in Waste Management.

Our Objective:

To build an autonomous robot who can navigate himself through a messy environment, avoid obstacles, search for various kinds of recyclables, sort the recyclable, and store the recyclable by its classification.

Hardware Requirements:

  • Atmel AVR ATMega 128 general-purpose microprocessor:It is a low-power CMOS 8-bit microcontroller based on the AVR enhanced RISC architecture.
  • We will need 6 pieces of switches, 8-bit port headers and special servo headers. 
  • 1 LCD header, an RS232 header
  • An ADC header and 
  •  JTAG port for programming: Joint Test Action Group (JTAG) is the common name for what was later standardized as the IEEE 1149.1 Standard Test Access Port and Boundary-Scan Architecture. 

We will also need to build a system so that our robot can move, recognize important things from junk and able to collect them. You will find complete details of this project in a report given below useful links.
