Project summary

Waste sorting robot

Sadako has developed Wall-B, a disruptive system for the recovery of valuable materials (bottles, cans, bricks, etc) in waste treatment plants. Our system is based on Artificial Intelligence for material detection and robotics for its recovery.

For the development of the robot during this voucher work we will benchmark the better alternatives for the construction of the robots to be able to work in different environments and with different materials taking also into account economical aspects.
