Litterbug: Battery Powered, Privacy Sensitive Litter Deterrent

Litterbug Website:

Litterbug.Cam is making use of the EoT board to do low power detection of littering (Unattended Luggage) and then to sound an audio-warning.

A key element of this product is that it must be battery powered so that it is easy and cheap for local councils to deploy. There is where the EoT board shows great promise.

Early results from the algorithm are showing detection accuracy with <5% false negatives and less than 2% false positives.

FYI: White boxes are “candidate events” that do not trigger an alert.
