Each family/user receives an RFID Card for the electronic identification at the Stations.
To dispose of the waste/materials, previously sorted by the user in different bags according to their category, it is necessary to reach one of the Intelligent Collection Stations and login with the RFID Card. In this phase waste containers are locked.
Selection of the waste/materials to dispose of and weight check
User selects on the touch screen the kind of waste/material to dispose of, choosing among 7 categories: MSW, cans, plastic, paper, glass, diapers, biowaste. Subsequently, using the weighing scale of the station, user checks the weight of each different waste bag (punctual quantification expressed in Kg and fractions).
Recording and printign of the label to identify the operation
The weight of each disposed waste/material is transmitted to the online database, where every user can monitor his results. The station prints an adhesive label with a barcode that user has to stick on each different waste bag. This label allows waste management operators, using a suitable device, to perform random controls and track users operations.
Disposal of the different waste/materials in the specific conatainer
The system unlocks the container of the specifically selected waste/material category. User puts the labelled bag in the container which then locks again. A system of three intelligent cameras verifies the correct performance of every operation, emitting an acoustic signal in case of mistakes.
A system optimized for visually impaired people
The system is also optimized for visually impaired people. On request, these users are supplied with a special RFID Card allowing the Collection Station to adapt the interface and match their specific needs.
NOTE: Every single step is guided by both visual and vocal instructions.
