This robot can automatically sort recyclable materials by just touching them

MIT researchers have invented a robot in order to cut down on the time consumed in sorting recyclable materials by jus touching them. Called RoCycle, the robotic system is capable of automatically identifying and sorting recyclable materials using pressure sensors, Mashable reported. The sensors identify the materials based on the amount of pressure exerted on them. There are chances of human error when it comes to identifying materials, however, RoCycle is able to differentiate between paper, metal, and plastic with 85 percent accuracy just by touching them. After identifying the material, it automatically drops them in the right bin.
