To help people become more sustainable, we would like to give them insights in their waste production. Your task is to develop a smart waste management system that keeps track of how you are disposing your waste. The idea being to make it more transparent so you can highlight areas to improve. The container would automatically weigh waste, and provide the user with insights through an app, so they see how their waste metrics compares to global and regional averages. A further feature could be to use image recognition to classify waste types, or to allow users to compete with friends on sustainability.
