Currently, about 100 percent of construction waste ends up in landfills, although much of it could be recycled or reused. A Finnish robotics company called ZenRobotics wants to generic viagra cheap change that. It has created a robot to sort through construction waste and http://invens.nl/free-levitra-sample find recyclable material and deposit it in appropriate bins.
The robot is essentially an arm with a gripper on the end that's connected to a computer that provides metal detection, weight measurements, 3-D scanning, tactile feedback and spectrometer analysis to identify and sort the materials. The robot is stationed by a conveyor belt where the materials are loaded. As the material goes by, the robot picks it up, analyzes it and if the robot identifies the type, places it in the purchase levitra soft tabs appropriate nearby bin. If material isn't recognized, it keeps traveling on the belt and is deemed trash.
So far, the robot can correctly identify about half of the material it goes through, but there is huge potential for improvement as new measuring technology becomes available.
The robot is a breakthrough for both recycling and robotics because before now, most robots have been limited to basic, repetitive tasks, but this new robot is being asked to analyze and recommended site levitra philippines recognize materials and learn as it goes.
