Waste Collection Delta Robot

The aim of this project is to design, implement and build a robot that can clean the sidewalks. In order to reach the desired position where the robot would find the target to be lifted, a Proportional-Integral-Derivative (PID) controller was designed. The control loop consisting of the desired position, the PID controller, the plant and the position sensor serving as a feedback were added to the delta robot parameters. Computer vision is used to detect and specify the coordinates of the desired target based on video captures from a camera installed on the robot.
