This robot can be built a lot easier!

This robot can be built a lot easier!

After thoughtful reconsiderations and some tips from our professor we came to the conclusion that the robot can be built much easier if we use a robotic arm instead of building the structure using a broom and a dustpan.
So we took off our metallic structure from our iRobot and then we placed the robotic arm on the new structure.

Introduction & The idea

Hello,

We’re a team of 3 students from Babeş-Bolyai University (Cluj Napoca, Romania) and our current project is to build an intelligent trash can robot.

The idea is simple: let’s build a robot which you can put in your room, leave it there and when it auto-detects new trash on the floor it goes there, picks it up, and returns to its original position. Simple, intelligent and clean – IntelliTrashcan.

We will publish details of our project as we go on and the steps of building it, so don’t forget to check us out in a few days!
