The longstanding problem of trash disposal on roads and in sewage systems in India has resulted in detrimental consequences for the environment. This includes adverse effects on air, water, and soil quality, as well as the presence of unpleasant odors. Given the importance of water resources and soil in sustaining life on Earth, it is critical to address these issues. In this paper, we propose an innovative solution called the Amphibious Trash Collector System, designed to collect aquatic and terrestrial trash. This system is beneficial for removing waste from locations that are hard to reach, such as sewage systems, where human intervention is difficult. Providing a compact, automated system minimizes the need for human involvement. The Amphibious Trash Collector System incorporates remote control functionality, utilizing two propellers for water movement and four motors to navigate on land. These components are controlled by a programmed Arduino, which also incorporates an ultrasonic sensor for distance detection. The YOLO algorithm is used for object detection, allowing the system to identify and move toward the trash. To assess its performance, the proposed trash collector system was evaluated based on metrics such as accuracy, error rate, F1 score, recall, and precision and compared with existing systems while considering time factors. Our research presents the Amphibious Trash Collector System as a viable solution to the problems associated with trash accumulation. Reducing pollution and preserving environmental integrity contribute to a cleaner and healthier ecosystem.
