RECLAIM will develop a portable, robotic material recovery facility tailored to small-scale material recovery in remote parts of the world. The proposal exploits well-tested technology in robotics, AI and data analytics which is improved to facilitate distributed material recovery. Further, a citizen science approach will increase social sensitivity to the Green Deal. This is accomplished via a novel Recycling Data-Game that enables and encourages citizens to participate in the project by providing annotations to be used in deep learning for the re-training of the AI module.
