Prairie Robotics makes recycling simple.

The firm installs cameras, GPS and a computer onboard recycling collection trucks. Images are taken of the material collected and Machine Learning is used to identify contamination (items that aren't recyclable). This data is then tied directly back to the household using the GPS.

Following data collection the firm's education module is capable of automatically distributing emails, mail-outs or phone calls to residents providing specific feedback to each household.

Recycling contamination is a critical problem for municipalities across North Amaerica paying hundreds of thousands to millions of dollars in recycling contamination fines to recycling processors. Beyond solving this immediate problem the firm looks to leverage recycling trucks vehicles to operate as roaming data collection centers to usher in a world of connected Smart Cities.

Beyond solving this immediate problem the firm looks to leverage recycling trucks vehicles to operate as roaming data collection centers to usher in a world of connected Smart Cities. Municipalities are already requesting additional uses including mounting an additional camera to analyze road conditions, and an RF receiver to read in water/gas/electricity meters remotely as the trucks visit each household.
