Smart Bin solution

The project group brought to the development of a Smart Bin solution that uses image recognition technology to award users with virtual points when recycling waste. The bins are easily located using geotagging and different amount of points are rewarded depending on the type of waste being recycled. These can be further spent in shops, cafés and other activities in the city of Karlskrona. The working prototype includes a camera, lighting, and ad-hoc software code in MATLAB to recognise different types of waste, with the goal of sorting them in different bins. An app prototype further demonstrates how points are collected and spent by the users.
