BIXI and limiting waste produced by cups (single used cups and reusable cups)

What it does

The idea behind it, is to create a system for citizens to dispose of there all purpose reusable cups in order to reduce the impact of waste. It takes it a used cups by the scan of a unique QR code identified to a user part of the program. If a user is registers a new cup may be given if needed. Anyone may deposit a cup under the condition that it is our all purpose reusable cups

How we built it

Arduino, Raspberry Pi 3 B+, Android App

Challenges we ran into

Setting up timer for latch system. Creating a implementing the server.

Accomplishments that we're proud of

It works! QR Code Scan! Last System Runs! Overall Pretty happy with our work!

What we learned

A lot. Such as API connections, QR scanning

What's next for Hiccup

Potentially find funding to propose an actual prototype
