as far as i can think u can use rack and pinion mechanism as i designed here and a high torque motor probably 20kgcm is useful. u can use an ultrasonic to mesure the height of traash in the bin and as required u can write a code to compress it and u can use a hinge and another motor to open and cloe the lid…hope it helps
Jibin has been one of the first collaborators to participate. And his ideas have been great. Thanks jibin.
Consider the size of a small washing machine. If we plan to build for the usages in hostels/canteens then we could of course consider larger dimensions and compaction system which could be used directly without much modification. When it comes to Home use a good analyze and study regarding size and the compaction mechanism is needed since we got to design a different DIY type compaction system to fit to a small size
Yes, ofcourse, that how i started the imaginations and thoughts since normal dustbin size is the best suitable, but when i had to put into consideration the compaction system, had to wide up the dimensions
