The ‘Anti-Trash‘ project kicked off its implementation for the year 2021.

The ‘Anti-Trash‘ project kicked off its implementation for the year 2021 on February 9th.

Partners have discussed the progress made in 2020, as well as the timing and implementation of project tasks for 2021.

The aim of the project is to develop an integrated smart trash detection and damage prevention solution for shared mobility and public transportation operators. The multi-disciplinary consortium will develop and demonstrate a machine-vision based trash detection system, and an air-quality management system, as well as develop internal materials more suitable for shared vehicle applications. The implementation of the EIT Urban Mobility innovation project started in 2020.

The cross-country partnership led by Aalto University includes industry, academia, research, and city partners, extending the transferability and replicability of the project across the EU. These partners are:

The demonstration events within the project link to customer requirements and perceptions of the developed solution, to validate its sustainability and viability on the market of urban mobility solutions.

MicroTech Lab develops a novel Odour Detection system for indoor air-quality in shared transportation systems.  During this year, Electrobus Europe will test the developed solution installed on their bus in a real city environment and SEAT will do the same in their first shared vehicle concept car.
