How does artificial intelligence garbage sorting robot work accurate?

The tireless artificial intelligence garbage sorting robot can accurately classify mixed garbage. The staff train the robot through big data, so that the robot has a judgment similar to that of the human brain, so as to quickly and accurately identify and classify waste, and finally liberate front-line workers from dirty and boring work.

A kind of robot with science fiction color has been actually used in domestic garbage sorting centers, so how does it work?

How does it work? Next, the editor will solve the mystery for everyone.
Robots can work 24 hours a day continuously, twice as efficient as workers.
According to customer requirements, garbage sorting robots can divide waste of different items and materials into more than 20 kinds of recyclables such as PET, HDPE, PP, glass, Lile bags, cans, clothes, shoes, paper, etc. All this waste was originally sorted by workers, but now it can be completely handed over to artificial intelligence.

It is especially worth mentioning that intelligent sorting robots can also sort dense waste paper and other two-dimensional objects on the conveyor belt, and can even pick out impurities such as plastic bags and plastic film in the waste paper, which greatly improves the purity of waste paper.


Robots can sort more than 70 items per minute, about twice as fast as ordinary people. Robots can also work continuously for 7 days * 24 hours. Workers can’t withstand such intensive labor. With the help of these intelligent robots, we believe that it is entirely possible to achieve unmanned waste recycling in the future, thus solving the long-standing shortage of personnel in garbage sorting centers and greatly reducing manual sorting errors caused by fatigue.

Working principle of garbage sorting robot

Taking Picking Ai, a product of Gongye Technology, a domestic garbage sorting robot company, as an example, it is understood that the working principle of this product includes the following points:

  1. Artificial intelligence algorithms train robots through massive images. Regardless of whether the waste is intact, dents, crushed, twisted, partially covered, etc., the robot can identify it, and accurately grab the materials to be recycled from the conveyor belt and put them into In the corresponding material frame. As long as the human eye can recognize at a glance, the artificial intelligence of arch and leaf technology can recognize it.
  2. The combination of artificial intelligence software and high-speed sorting robots, similar to the neural network system of the human brain and human hands, has the ability to recognize and execute.
  3. The artificial intelligence of bow leaf technology also has a strong migration learning ability, which can achieve data sharing and remote intelligence improvement through the cloud brain and robots deployed everywhere. For example, robots deployed in a garbage sorting center can learn from different robots deployed throughout the country, and robots can also inherit the experience of waste identification.

Application of foreign artificial intelligence sorting robots

(1) BHS (United States)
Bulk Handling Systems (BHS) is located in Eugene, Oregon. In April 2019, BHS deployed nine intelligent sorting robots at the garbage collection center in Berkeley County, South Carolina, which is the largest single deployment site of BHS. The company has deployed a total of 84 robots in 10 countries to sort plastics, metals, paper and other recyclable waste, said Peter Raschio, marketing director. The company’s intelligent sorting robots cost about $200,000 per unit (the above data are from the network). At present, BHS’ intelligent sorting robot has not yet entered the Chinese market.


(2) AMP (United States)
AMP Robotics was founded in 2014, and the company also uses robots to execute its artificial intelligence algorithms. The most successful case is the SSR plant in Florida, USA, using 14 AMP intelligent sorting robots. In 2019, AMP Robotics announced the completion of round A financing of $16 million, led by Sequoia Capital (United States). Previously, AMP Robotics had been invested by BV Baidu Venture Capital Angel Round. AMP declined to disclose the price of its intelligent sorting robot (the above data is from the network). According to industry insiders, AMP has not yet entered the Chinese market.
