ARDUINO MICROCONTROLLER BASED SMART DUSTBINS FOR SMART CITIES

Abstract
In this paper, a method is presented to make our surrounding's and environment to be clean. Recently the Government of India has launched a smart city project and for these smart cities to be smarter, it is necessary that the garbage collection and disposal system has to be smarter than the existing systems. The idea of Self-Monitoring Automated Route Trash (SMART) dustbin is for the smart buildings, Colleges, Hospitals and bus stands, etc. In this paper, we have used the Ultrasonic sensor and PIR sensor to sense the human presence, Servomotor to open the dustbin top, Ultrasonic sensor to sense the garbage level. A communication module is used to communicate signals between two dustbins and GSM module to send the message to operator. As soon as the dustbin is full it moves in the predefined path to reach the unnoticed place with the help of the Line follower robot using Arduino Microcontroller. We have designed a simple model to test the effectiveness of the proposed method. This paper gives an idea to be implemented in Swach Bharat dustbin in a real time model of various loads like full load, half load and empty load and for different weights.
