INTRODUCTION
1.1 Introduction of Project
Things that are connected to Internet and sometimes these devices can be
controlled from the Internet is commonly called as Internet of Things. The digitalized
future, it is directly proportional to increase in urbanization and industrialization. This is
the main cause of generation of large amount of waste. And in today's sophisticated
world; robots and autonomous machines are an integral part of daily routine. They help in
completing daily chores for human beings; especially for physically challenged and aged
people of the society. These robots are also critical in many industries as they reduce life
casualties and financial degradation while performing risky and critical operations.
The population in India has crossed 1.5 billion, so is the development of the nation
with the urbanization, utilization of raw materials, employment. The problem aroused is the
escalating of the waste by each individual is not possible. In such cases developing a Robotic
system would be helpful to keep the environment clean and tidy. Increasing interest in
recycling is driven by a multitude of factors, including fluctuations and increases in material
prices, environmental concerns over material production and disposal. A proposed system of
an automatic waste segregator is introduced, that aims at segregating the waste at the disposal
level itself. According to the principles of separation process, sorting technologies for solid
waste are divided into 2 major categories, namely wet and dry, thereby making waste
management more effective. One special class of robot which finds wide application is the
pick and place robot, which is microcontroller based system that detects the object and picks
that object from source location and places at desired location.
The sensed data is transmitted to Arduino UNO board using Zigbee module that
control the transmission Using ESP-Wi-Fi module to the web site through the TCP/IP
protocol. The web site displays the state of waste level in the containers. The displayed
status shows either containers get full or not, which helps for taking action to dispose the
waste through sending SMS to the garbage truck.

1.2 Problem Statement of the Project
An astounding 0.1 million tons of waste is generated each day in India. Only 5%
of this colossal amount of waste is recycled. One possible solution for this problem could
be segregating the waste at the disposal level itself. In India, the collection, transportation
and disposal of MSW are unscientific and chaotic. Uncontrolled dumping of waste on
outskirts of towns and cities has created overflowing landfills which are not only
impossible to reclaim because of the haphazard manner of dumping but also has serious
environmental implication in terms of ground water pollution and contribution to Global
warming. This has found to reduce the average life span of the manual segregators. The
waste management system consist of System consist of three subsystems are smart bin,
smart control and monitoring system and waste vehicle. This study was carried out in two
parts. The first part is the construction of a system that collects and monitors waste in a
number of containers distributed in different geographic areas. The second section deals
with the implementation of this system on a specific city. The system can be improved by
connecting the system with the GPS system to determine the location of the bin and send
message to near waste Vehicle to empty the bin as well as use internet of things to
monitoring and access bins from anywhere.

1.3 Objective and Scope of the Project


Automated Waste Segregator has been successfully implemented for the
segregation of waste into dry and wet waste at a domestic level. However, it cannot
segregate ceramic into dry waste because of its higher relative dielectric constant as
compared to other dry wastes. Noise can be eliminated in the sensing module to increase
accuracy and overall efficiency. This system has its own limitations. It can segregate only
one type of waste at a time with an assigned priority for wet and dry waste. The levels are
divided into three categories which are empty, half and full. If the container is full the
Message is sent to vehicle car to empty the bin, the Wi-Fi module is used to send data via
the Internet protocol TCP/IP to the web page, data are stored in a database for future
analysis to control container distribution in appropriate location.

1.4 Importance of the Project
• A reduction in the number of waste collection needed by upto 80%, resulting in
less man power, emissions, fuel use and traffic congestion.
• A reduction in the number of waste bins needed.
• Analytics data to manage collection routes and the placement of bins more
effectively.
• Improved environment (No overflowing bins and less unpleasant odours).
• Proper garbage collection and disposal facilitates improved recycling, lessens the
impact on landfills, and protects the environment through effectively controlling
the pollutants and contaminants that are released.
• Waste collection and rubbish disposal play an extremely important role in the
global cleanliness and sustainability drive, with people’s health and the
conservation of resources being the responsibility of every government.
• In many cities it means that local government agencies have been left with the
responsibility of overseeing the work done by these privately held organisations.
• The most important reason for waste collection is the protection of the
environment and the health of the population.
• waste management and recycling collection can help conserve our planet’s natural
beauty which can be flawed by thoughtless disposal of waste, fly-tipping and
senseless littering. Landscapes can be ruined through littering and places of tourist
interest can lose their attraction; it is also a blight for those who live in areas
where waste collection and recycling is not managed effectively and responsibly.
• There are many challenges facing the waste management and recycling industry
but there is also a lot of excellent work going on to ensure that this is an industry
to be proud of and one that will continue to secure effective, sustainable and
ecologically sound waste management and recycling for many years to come.

several bins, in order to automate the garbage collection.

Mahesh Kumar A and Rajesh A [2] has proposed the rising population of India poses
serious threats with regard to the availability of living space, utilization of natural
resources and raw materials, education and employment, another serious peril that
follows is the escalating amount of waste generated each minute by an individual.
Conveyor belt start moving, when the waste on the conveyor belt reaches the blower
section, the conveyor belt stop to a particular duration of time, during that time blower is
turned on, which makes the dry waste to blow off and fall into the bin.

ROBOTIC ARM FOR TRASH COLLECTING AND SEPARATING
Subhasini Dwivedi et al.,[32] has proposed that now-a-days the wastes are dumped as
landfill waste and the major problem in solid waste disposal is plastic bottles, glass
bottles, metal can separation and they are separated manually and recycled. So it is
necessary to have a suitable solid waste treatment plant. we are developing a prototype
for separating plastic, glass bottles and metal cans from solid waste material using
programmable logic controller (PLC) S7-300.
Advantage: It is more effective method that can sort different categories of plastic
bottles, glass bottles, metal cans, and tetra packs quickly and accurately. Disadvantage:

George E Sakr et al.,[34] has proposed Waste sorting is the process of separating waste
into different types. The current trend is to efficiently separate the waste in order to
appropriately deal with it. This research aims to automate waste sorting by applying
machine learning techniques to recognize the type of waste from their images only. Each
algorithm creates a different classifier that separates waste into 3 main categories: plastic,
paper and metal using only 256 x 256 colored png image of the waste. Advantage: It
uses raspberry pi so that it is able to sort waste by their images only.
Disadvantage: It has very low execution time and low GPU memory is available.

Eyhab Al-Masri et al.,[35] has proposed that addressing environmentally safe


management of waste is becoming increasingly a challenging task. The problem,
however, improving the collection of waste can be costly particularly during the source
separation process after waste is collected.

PREAMBLE
3.1 Existing System
A SC could incorporate various models to enable new services or efficient redesign of the
existing services. For instance, in the waste collection process, static models could be
transformed to Waste Collection as a Service (WCaaS) which enables online dynamic
scheduling and routing of the collection trucks presents an example for both a static and a
dynamic routing scenario for waste collection. The dynamic waste collection could be
described as an online decision process for defining, when to collect waste from bins , and
which routes the collection trucks should follow . Many technologies and hardware areal
ready used in waste management adopting different approaches in the management of the
physical infrastructure as well as the data collected in the field. For instance, the IoT hardware
and technology could identify real objects and transforms them to ‘smart things’.

RFID can be used for tagging an object, and so gives a unique identifier to each smart
thing. Sensors and WSNs enable the measurement of physical quantities and the
transformation to digital signals, which are processed wirelessly by an adhoc network
infrastructure. Low-power radio communications and low-cost embedded devices enable
sensors to incorporate RFID tags . Actuators are adopted to stimulate and give feedback to
digital systems by interacting, in the physical layer, with the infrastructure. Future Internet
provides interconnection to smart things with IPv6 over Low Power Wireless Personal Area
Networks (6LoWPAN) protocol, which is a modified version of IPv6 for low power
embedded devices In addition, many IoT architectures are builton Cloud Infrastructure ,
enabling the concept of Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) Furthermore, the interconnected
smart phones ,form networks which serve as WSN gateways for IoT systems . For instance,
in the waste collection example, collection truck drivers can use a smart phone network
enabling messaging with the waste management infrastructure and thus realize dynamic
scheduling and routing. Finally, the WSN/IoT’s strength is that it can combine diverse
technologies to support dynamic models for the efficient waste management in SCs.

we review a high number of models in the waste management domain to reveal


their pros and cons. The aim is to setup the basis for delivering novel models that will
outperform the existing ones. However, before we are ready to propose and discuss any
novel reference model for waste management, it is essential to compare the research
related to the adoption of dynamic models for waste collection.

Dept. of CSE, VKIT 2019-2020 Page 15


ROBOTIC ARM FOR TRASH COLLECTING AND SEPARATING
For realizing a comparative assessment, we proceed with the definition of a
concrete taxonomy that ‘covers’ the available models. The provided taxonomy will
become the basis for mapping any waste management model, thus, to be compared with
any other model found in the respective literature. Through the proposed taxonomy, the
interested readers/researchers will be capable of identifying any ‘gaps’ in the respective
research and propose efficient methods for dealing with new frame works in the domain.

3.1 Proposed System


The above-mentioned problem statement is recovered by a project named
“Robotic Arm for Trash Collecting and Separating Robot” which is an embedded system,
meaning something that is attached to another thing. An embedded system can be thought
of as a computer hardware system having software embedded in it. An embedded system
can be an independent system, or it can be a part of a large system. An embedded system
is a microcontroller or microprocessor based system which is designed to perform a
specific task.
An embedded system has these components:
• Hardware.
• Application software.
• Real Time Operating system (RTOS).
• Smart bin

3.3 Contribution of the Project


This project will contribute many things to the society. Some of them are as flows:
• It will reduce the man power.
• It saves a lot of time.
• Automated Waste Segregator has been successfully implemented for the
segregation of waste into dry and wet waste at a domestic level.
• It cannot segregate ceramic into dry waste because of its higher relative dielectric
constant as compared to other dry wastes.
• Noise can be eliminated in the sensing module to increase accuracy and overall
efficiency. This system has its own limitations.

Chapter 5
CONCLUSION
Automated Waste Segregator has been successfully implemented for the
segregation of waste into dry and wet waste at a domestic level. However, it cannot
segregate ceramic into dry waste because of its higher relative dielectric constant as
compared to other dry wastes. Noise can be eliminated in the sensing module to increase
accuracy and overall efficiency. This system has its own limitations. It can segregate
only one type of waste at a time with an assigned priority for wet and dry waste. The
levels are divided into three categories which are empty, half and full. If the container is
full the Message is sent to vehicle car to empty the bin, the Wi-Fi module is used to send
data via the Internet protocol TCP/IP to the web page, data are stored in a database for
future analysis to control container distribution in appropriate location.
