Volvo Wants Robots To Help On Trash Day

Garbage collection may be an inglorious job, but it’s also dangerous one, so making robots take out the trash makes sense to me. Hopefully, Volvo also makes a robot that will shoot litterers on sight.

ROAR stands for RObot-based Autonomous Refuse Handling. The system has two main parts: robots that can transport trash bins and also a high-tech garbage truck (more like a mothership) where the garbage man controls the robots on a dashboard.
