Improving waste segregation using customable sorting systems, augmented reality techniques and methodological valorisation chains

Products global demand constantly grows, along with drifts of the volume of waste produced, thus having a negative impact on the environment. Besides the advancement of artificial intelligence and cutting-edge sensing and actuation systems, allow for traditional recycling procedures to be digitised and become more efficient. Among these, automated sorting machines allow such efficacy, by using multiple recognition technologies to categorise items, instead of relying on humans to separate them. In this sense, a new approach being included in the Cyber-Physical Sorting System (CPSS) capable to be adapted in different industries such as urban wastes, construction & demolition wastes as well as mineral sorting will be analysed. The materials are laid out over a conveyor belt, where multi-purpose visual sensors (hyper-spectral, industrial and short-wave infrared) acquire images in order to classify and sort them in different bins using robotic arms. The adaptable sorting systems is coupled with Augmented Reality techniques in order to assist unskilled human operators to achieve recycling and dismantling tasks, following the relevant valorisation changes.
