Abstract

The main idea of SENSOR BASED MEDIWASTE DISPOSAL SMART TRASH BIN is how efficiently the bio-medical wastes are collected in the hospital especially in the wards using the concept of IOT. Proper medical waste management strategy is needed to ensure health and environmental safety. Usage of common dustbin for collecting both the normal and medical wastage then there occurs a creation of infectious bacteria and viruses to avoid such cases we proposed a partitioned bin to collect both the wastages separately in the common bin. GSM module is used for communication between the authority and the bin. Image processing is proposed to segregate the medical waste and normal waste. The automatic open close of the lid, measure of distance between the object and bin, motion of the object are all achieved by using sensors like Servo Motor, Ultrasonic Sensor, and PIR Sensor. The entire process is carried out by the open source Arduino platform embedded with the micro-controller. To dispose the medical waste in a proper way and provide clean environment to the patient.
