Volvo announced it is working on a robot that collects your refuse bin and empties it into a garbage truck.
“It is done without waking the sleeping families and without heavy lifting for the refuse truck’s driver,” said Volvo.
The project is called ROAR – Robot-based Autonomous Refuse handling – where the truck driver will supervise the robots.
“The purpose of ROAR is to demonstrate how we, in the very near future, will use smart machines to assist with a broad range of activities in society.”
“This technology can be applied in many areas. Refuse collection is just one example.”
