The development of the ‘Anti-Trash’ solution rolls on in 2021



The ‘Anti-Trash‘ project kicked off its implementation for the year 2021 on February 9th.

Partners have discussed the progress made in 2020, as well as the timing and implementation of project tasks for 2021.

The aim of the project is to develop an integrated smart trash detection and damage prevention solution for shared mobility and public transportation operators. The multi-disciplinary consortium will develop and demonstrate a machine-vision based trash detection system, and an air-quality management system, as well as develop internal materials more suitable for shared vehicle applications. The implementation of the EIT Urban Mobility innovation project started in 2020.

The cross-country partnership led by Aalto University includes industry, academia, research, and city partners, extending the transferability and replicability of the project across the EU. These partners are:

The demonstration events within the project link to customer requirements and perceptions of the developed solution, to validate its sustainability and viability on the market of urban mobility solutions.

ZONE Cluster supports the setting up, and implementation of the demonstration event in the City of Zalaegerszeg. During this event, Electrobus Europe will test the developed solution installed on their bus in a real city environment.

In 2020, the camera-vision system was successfully installed on Electrobus’s electric bus, the City Pioneer. The bus was presented to the public, in early 2021, in the Hungarian city of Székesfehérvár. The same type of bus is expected to host the complete ‘Anti-Trash’ system which is to be finalized by the end of this year.
