Automated sorting, Robotic sorting, Artificial Intelligence, State of the art
Waste is a miserable product for automated sorting. No one piece looks like the other and usually most of the pieces to be sorted are composed by more than one type of material.
This is one of the main reasons why it’s mainly done by humans in handpicking stations. Human can learn very quickly, even if not very well educated, to sort mixed waste efficiently and reliably. Humans have quite bad sensors. Every HD Camera sees much mote then our eyes. But experience and the intelligence of our brain make the difference.
