Street sweepers are good, but they're no match for the cleaning power of the Recycle Bot by Furio Tedeschi.
Tedeschi has created a robot that keeps the streets clean in an unobtrusive way. The robot would work at night, picking up trash and sorting recyclable material along the way. Tedeschi has not released any specifics regarding how the Recycle Bot would work or what it's made of.
What we do know can be gleaned from the photos of the Recycle Bot by Furio Tedeschi. The waste bin seems to be the large cylinder on top and there appears to be a camera on the base to help the robot identify trash. It walks on four legs and resembles something like a mechanized spider. While the Recycle Bot is nothing more than a concept, it's only a matter of time before robots like this make their way from research labs and the battlefield and into the public.
