Till they work out it’s one sweet for cans and two for paper and dump everything in the paper flap
You can detect objects by reflection. Put a torch or led in it and LDR to see whether the object reflects.

And you can detect metal based on whether the object conduct electricity.
Paper doesn't relect, non conductive
Plastic may reflect, non conductive
Metal will reflect , conductive
Send me an email at email@example.com. I have created an AI model on the Raspberry Pi to classify Plastic, Glass, Metal, Paper, Cardboard, and Trash. Let's team up and make a badass product.Rahulvijayan wrote: ↑Sat Mar 14, 2020 4:42 pmI have found an array of sensors that can hopefully tell is something is trash or recycling. I am planning on making this a product that I will be planning on selling. I would like to work with someone on this because I need help, I can't do this on my own. I also have a raspberry pi camera and will use AI technology to hopefully make this easier I will disclose the sensors when I have a partner. The sensors can tell if it is plastic or metal or paper or wood and my plan is using a good motherboard the sensors can tell what item it is and the send the information to the motor which will flip the platform it is on to either the trash side of the recycling side. This will hopefully be solar powered in the future. Whoever wants to work with me please email me at Rahulvijyan184@gmail.com.
I can just imagine a student's reaction after the recycling bin tells them: "IF YOU CHEAT ONE MORE TIME, I WILL HAVE TO USE MY LASER ON YOU"
