Taking out the trash may be annoying. Nobody likes the smell of a bin. But, This is not a normal rubbish bin. This bin is autonomous and will take itself out when needed. It’s called “ARRR” (Autonomous Refuse Receptacle Robot). They hope to make taking the trash out a thing of the past. The owner uses an app to schedule when the bin should take out the trash.

This relates to engineering because engineering was used to develop new technology used in the bin. They call it called “SLAM’ (Simultaneous Localization and Mapping).
