SORT-IN-LIEGE : Why Robots Sort Better Than Humans
An online activity to discover how simple machines and smart robots can sort metal scraps and electronic waste better than humans.
In this activity we will challenge the audience with a series of materials and objects that need to be sorted into separate bins for efficient recycling. We will discover which properties are being used by machines and robots to sort plastics, metals or alloys which all look the same to our human eyes. We will demonstrate robots in action in the “plant of the future”.
