Artificial Intelligence Empowered Waste Management System


The process of recycling is Completely dependent on sorting of material but because of very poor waste management strategies in Africa sorting is really difficult. Currently its 100% human labor based. We Scinfinity are developing a robotic system that uses artificial intelligence to sort the materials for recycling. Our system is more efficient because it reduces the problem of contamination by a huge percent, its fast as it can pick 80items/minute with high accuracy, thus it can increase revenue to material recovery facilities (MRFs) and local recycling companies by an estimate of 60% per month due to increased throughput.
