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.
