To build a pair of programmable Robots (bioBot and trashBot) that can work in tandem to automate the vacuum cleaning of Delhi roads.
India, over the last two decades, has seen tremendous economic growth. This growth has brought great prosperity to the people of India but has also resulted in some serious environmental problems. One such problem that's plaguing the Indian cities is increase in the pollution level (air, water and soil). The major factors contributing for the same are (not limited to) over populated cities, inadequate waste management infrastructure, inefficient traffic management system etc.
Consistent to this year's theme of "Incredible India", your team has to devise two Robots that will help in curbing this ever increasing pollution. Your robots will have to automate the waste collection process of Delhi. The description of the Robots can be found below:
trashBot is a programmable robot that has been tasked to ensure that it collects all the non bio-degradable waste in the vicinity of Delhi's main highway (aka Ring Road). The bot has to do a variety of tasks like picking up scrap tyres from the roadside, depositing the plastic waste to the recycling plant and depositing recyclable bricks to the Landfill area (which is under construction). These are just some of the tasks, the complete list you can refer to the task description paragraph.
bioBot is the second programmable robot that has been tasked to ensure that it collects all the bio - degradable waste in the vicinity of Delhi's secondary highway (aka Outer Ring Road). The bot has to do a variety of tasks like picking up broken trees, animal waste from the roadside in addition to removing the dead animal carriage vehicle and dumping all of them into the Municipal Corporation of Delhi (MCD) waste recycling site. These are just some of the tasks, for the complete list you can refer to the task description paragraph.
The following tasks should be performed on the arena:
Picking up the scrap tyres: Old scrap tyres can be a real menace in Delhi as not only they should be recycled but also they can lead to water logging and diseases like dengue.
Picking up the plastic waste: Delhi’s recycling plant can easily recycle the plastic waste, therefore, it needs to be picked up from the roadside.
Dropping the plastic waste and the scrap tyres: to the recycling plant that will come on the left side of the Ring Road.
Picking up the recycled bricks: The plastic waste and the scrap tyres can be easily converted into recycled bricks. Once the waste has been dropped, the Recycled bricks should also be picked up. (Note: the bricks can only be picked up if both kinds of wastes have been dropped).
Picking up the animal waste and broken trees: Over a period of time, lot of bio-degradable waste also piles up next to the running roads and they need to be cleared. An older option of the same was to burn this waste, however, the new government has banned the same and the waste should only be dropped to the MCD Dump area at the extreme end of the outer ring road.
Ferrying the dead animal vehicle: to its designated location adjacent to the MCD Dump area.
