2 Scientists Invent the Waste Recycling Robot

Garbage is still a major problem for humans on Earth. One way to handle this is by recycling. Recently scientists created a robot that helps humans in the process of recycling waste.

Reported by Telset.id from Ubergizmo, researchers from the Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory, Massachusetts Institute of Technology (CSAIL MIT), developed a robot called RoCycle.

This RoCycle robot has a special ability for waste because it can identify the type of waste with just a touch.

It can know what types of materials are made and will sort them out, thus saving cleaning staff time to separate waste manually. The Robot also has an ability to play online casino with human, that indicated it can be a very high intelligent to win in Yukbola online bet against human in such game.

This robot uses sensors to measure garbage objects as well as two sensors that determine whether the object can be kneaded or not. Then the robot will sort out whether the waste includes paper, plastic, or metal to the trash.

The RoCycle robot has an accuracy of around 63% when sorting junk items on a conveyor belt machine, and an accuracy of about 85% when the objects are in a stationary position.

This technology is good enough to protect the environment, although its capabilities still need to be improved. Scientists are currently competing to create environmentally friendly technology.

Previously two researchers in the UK had created a new design of a mini wind turbine that looked like a volleyball. This mini wind turbine is claimed to be able to catch wind that blows from all directions and can produce environmentally friendly energy.

Wind-O turbines are turbines that win and get this award, can produce environmentally friendly energy. This turbine is suitable for people who live in urban areas.

Nicolas Orellana and Yaseen Noorani who are two researchers from Lancaster University, said that the turbines they made were made of small plastic balls equipped with tools that could produce wind from all directions.

Besides, Japan also introduced robot assistants. It is estimated that there were 16 robots deployed during the 2020 Tokyo Olympics.

During the 2012 Olympic Games in London, the committee relied on volunteers not being paid to lead the audience or help find their way, but at the Olympics in Tokyo in 2020, everything was done by robots.

The Tokyo 2020 Olympic and Paralympic Committee launched two robots that will be used to help workers and participants in the match.

This robot made by Toyota will direct participants to their seats, provide information, and bring food and drinks.

Later there will be two robots, the Human Support Robot, which has a built-in arm to take the tray and basket and the Delivery Support Robot, which looks more like a trash can that can move but can also transport goods.

Reporting from the page The Verge, there are an estimated 16 robots deployed during the 2020 Tokyo Olympics, the organizers hope the robot is very helpful for wheelchair users.

With the robot, wheelchair guests are no longer worried, because they will be directed to enjoy every game with the direction of the robot.

Not only robots made by Toyota but the exoskeleton called Power Assist Suits made by Panasonic will also be used to help lift and move things.

This Car Utilizes Recycled Material As A Body Part

The 2019 Tokyo Motor Show presents a variety of vehicles with various offered technologies. Which is one of the cars was made based on the results of recycled material and applied to the body of the car.

What is NCV, and What Does it Take to Maintain Clean Energy?

Nano Cellulose Vehicle (NCV) is the result of a breakthrough because it uses cellulose nanofiber (CNF) as its material. For the explanation, cellulose nanofiber is delivered from plants and agricultural waste that have been recycled.

This CNF material is the result of research from 22 universities, research institutions, and automotive parts supplier companies in Japan. This project was launched in 2016 by the Japanese Ministry of Environment to utilize existing waste and reduce waste allocation.

Based on the assessment conducted by the consortium, the manufacture of automotive parts from CNF is proven to reduce levels of carbon dioxide (CO2) in the air because the car body to be 50 percent lighter than conventional cars, and make the engine to work less harder.

Almost all parts of a car are related to this material, including doors, car roofs, and hood., The NCV is designed like a supercar with sharp corners on the front and back, a door with a butterfly model, to a LED slit lamp model to provide an aggressive feel.

The dashboard from the steering wheel to the passenger seat is clad in wood with a minimalist and elegant design while the instrument panel is already using a digital system.

For power systems, this concept car is estimated to use hydrogen fuel cells and still has a low maximum speed of 20 kilometers per hour. But considering its status as a concept car, still, it needs to be adjusted.

It is not known yet whether there is an automotive giant manufacturer that will use CNF material as a production car. If there is, of course, it will be very interesting to be able to utilize waste and reduce on using metal materials.
