IDEA

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

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
