Beach Cleaning Bot Based on Region Monitoring Using Raspberry Pi
This paper discusses about the development of beach cleaning bot. The paper focuses on two main aspects: conveyor belt mechanism and region monitoring system. In order to remove the waste from the sandy surface, we developed the conveyor belt mechanism. To identify the waste the bot was equipped with pi camera module this helps the bot to continuously monitor the sandy surface. Region monitoring is based on object detection (image processing) which is used to detect the waste and respond accordingly. For object detection process Tensorflow and OpenCV software are used.
