Project information

Project descriptions

Our project is an automatic rubbish disposal car. which is divided into 4 parts.The whole system is operated under the link between a computer and the vehicle, through this link, the computer can sketch the environment and calculate both position and posture of the vehicle, giving the car instructions on movements. The radar module is for outlining​ the surrounding environment. The AI recognition module allows the car to label the spitball that the camera captured, this allows it to find the spitball we wish to throw away. The Robotic Arm module is responsible for grabbing the object and throwing it into the Smart Bin. The Smart Bin should be able to open up automatically when the arm grabs the target as well as when someone’s hand is close to the bin.
