Robots put to work on e-waste | UNSW Newsroom


curated by | November 18, 2014

“UNSW researchers have programmed industrial robots to tackle the vast array of e-waste thrown out by Australians every year. The research shows robots can learn and memorise how various electronic products are designed, enabling them to be disassembled for recycling at ever-increasing speeds. It is a joint project by researchers at the School of Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering’s Sustainable Manufacturing and Life Cycle Engineering Research Group (SMLCE) and the School of Computer Science and Engineering.”
