Submission Title

Design of Smart Trashcan

Subject Area

Physics/Applied Physics

Description

This project describes how to design a smart trashcan, which is especially important to help people conveniently and safely dispose of their garbage at this special time during the COVID-19 pandemic. Thus, this design is for a trashcan which can help people reduce their contact with possible sources of infection and ensure a healthy environment for the community. This project has gone through two significant revisions, which are described in detail. I compare the pros and cons for several design revisions that were made after modeling the trash can in SolidWorks and considering its operation. These include the choice of the lid material and the addition of a triangle-shaped supporter. From my project, designers can know some factors to consider in designing a community smart trashcan. Some common design techniques and the methods of using CAD are also presented, so that they can be easily utilized by other scholars.
