One of the major problems facing our cities is the disposal of the huge amount of waste produced every day. A possible solution is represented by recycling. In this article, we propose a system for automatic recognition and extraction of materials from the unsorted waste, which takes advantage of Computer Vision and Machine Learning techniques. The system can classify the material of incoming objects and grasp, and insert them into proper bins. For the material classification phase, the system analyzes the information captured by a Near-Infrared (NIR) camera and an RGB camera. Experimental tests performed on real-world datasets show encouraging accuracy values.

Abstract

One of the major problems facing our cities is the disposal of the huge amount of waste produced every day. A possible solution is represented by recycling. In this article, we propose a system for automatic recognition and extraction of materials from the unsorted waste, which takes advantage of Computer Vision and Machine Learning techniques. The system can classify the material of incoming objects and grasp, and insert them into proper bins. For the material classification phase, the system analyzes the information captured by a Near-Infrared (NIR) camera and an RGB camera. Experimental tests performed on real-world datasets show encouraging accuracy values.
