Introducing DustBot, the Italian Wall-E

dustbot

The DustBot project, coordinated by Professor Paolo Dario from the Sant’Anna School in Pisa, Italy, has developed two robots, DustClean and DustCart. DustClean cleans and disinfects the streets, while the DustCart moves around the city, picking up waste discreetly.The robots are equipped with a touch screen that demonstrates statistics about the air quality, and also has sensors which pick up the CO2 levels, oxides, and thin dust particles. The DustCart has a belly where it inserts the waste, and it debuted for the first time in Osaka, Japan, thanks to the collaboration of the bio-robot laboratories of the Sant’Anna school, and the International Advanced Telecommunications Research Institute of Kyoto.
