Using AI to Sort Recycled Matrials
Advisor: Steve Alexander, Professor of Physics
This project is an improvement on a past SCOPE project, where a deep learning artificial intelligence is used with a raspberry pi to sort recycled materials using a camera. The material goes through a conveyor belt once it is detected by the camera. The improvement will be on the motors used to move the conveyor, the sorting mechanism and a ramp for the material to start on. The goal of this project is to have an efficient method of sorting the recycled material as well as material that is contaminated and not able to be recycled.
