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
