Vancouver tests AI-powered waste bins

10 May 2019

Vancouver International Airport has begun a smart waste bin pilot programme with local company Intuitive AI. Three Oscar smart bins employ robotics, machine learning, and computer vision to detect and accurately route litter into the correct waste category.

Vancouver recycled and composted 51% of its 4,800 tonnes of domestic and international terminal building waste in 2018. This was 1% above its target for 2020.
