Chirjiv commented on Standardisation of plastics & smart sorting

Hello Andrew! Nice to connect! I just got the chance to check out your idea. I agree on standardization be it via code or shapes. The idea behind google goggles type of technology for this issue was to be able to virtually recognize the shape or read the code so that a manual sorter would (via google goggles type of technology ) be able to associate /classify one material with one colour, thus increasing sorting efficiency in the limited time span available for sorting. How will this work part needs more research - but an app could be used perhaps. Also, existing technologies need to be researched to first check if there is something close out there and what are the gaps & challenges. Next phase will be to develop a method for a virtual recognition / imaging technologies to close the identified gap. :)
