Hyderabad's 12-year-old prodigy develops smart dustbin after getting inspiration from 'Swachh Bharat Mission'

A 12-year-old prodigy has developed a smart dustbin after getting inspired by the 'Swachh Bharat Mission' program in Hyderabad. While the 12-year-old Mohd Hasan himself is an eighth standard student, he takes classes for Civil, Mechanical and Electronic engineering students of Masters and Bachelor levels. While speaking to ANI, Mohd Hasan said, "One day I was watching the 'Swachh Bharat' campaign program and inspired by that I made a Smart Dustbin. Whenever the dustbin gets filled, the display outside will show and when the dustbin gets totally filled up then it will send a message to the Municipal Corporation to come and pick up the dustbin," Speaking more about the dustbin, Hasan added, "This dustbin has a Wi-Fi module, ultrasonic sensors, servo motor, an LCD, sensor and buzzer." The ultrasonic sensors measure the amount of garbage in the dustbin while the LCD displays the quantity to the owners. The Wi-Fi module comes into use when the dustbin is filled and a message needs to be sent to the Municipal Corporation. Hasan had previously also developed a serving robot in merely 15 days, which can take voice commands, follow a line and be set on automatic mode. "It took me two days to complete this project, if we use the technology with 'Swachh Bharat' then it can come handy in keeping our country clean," Hasan further stated.
