Introducing Alphabox – the intelligent trash bin

The topic of this year’s First Lego League is called Trash Trek, which is focused on handling trash. Our team TalentumSAP created an intelligent trash bin called Alphabox, which is capable of compressing PET bottles after putting them into the bin. We came up with this idea after consulting with experts in KOSIT a.s., which is the biggest trash handling company in our region. The bin is equipped with sensors for measuring the fullness of it and with a smoke detector in case of fire. Based on the readings of these sensors the bin can inform KOSIT if it needs to emptied. We will provide detailed information later.
