In this tutorial, we are going to learn how to make a smart bin using arduino.
I strongly suggest you to buy the hardwares from UTSource. since their products are good quality and more affordable. Enjoy buying from them with cheapest prize.
Arduino Uno 1 x 1

SG90 Servo Motor 1 x 1
Dust bin 1 x 1
jumper wires few
Battery 9v 1 x 1
battery cap 1 x 1
Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Soldier Some Jumpers and Wires As Shown in the Picture
Before using the Arduino, make some jumpers with soldering to connect ultrasonic sensor to arduino
SG90 servo motor to arduino
Make two female connectors at one end and one male connectors at the other end. because arduino have only one +5v.
connect the DC pin to the battery cap.
Step 2: Make a Hardware As Per the Circuit Diagram and Download the Code to Test Manually
make the hardware as per the circuit diagram and download the code from the attachment.
Test the hardware by showing an obstacle or hand infront of the ultrasonic sensor and check the servo motors working. if everything works fine. Assemble the Smart Bin
Step 3: Make the Relevent Holes on the Dustbin
First hole to connect the ultrasonic
second hole to tie the servo motor
third hole to place the arduino and tie it with tag to make it as a non movable.
Step 4: Fix the Components in the Suitable Hole and Tie It With the Tags
Fix the components in the suitable hole, so that it can be constant in the presented area.
Step 5: Connect the Jumper Wire to the Components and Connect It With the Arduino Board
Connect the jumper wire between the ultrasonic sensor and arduino as per the circuit diagram.
Similarly connect the jumper wire between the servo motor and the arduino board.
Fix the movable stand with the servo motor so that it can open the dustbin.
Step 6: Fix the Battery and Enjoy the Smart Bin
Fix the +9v battery to the arduino uno board.
close the dustbin
show the waste paper in front of the ultrasonic sensor, the smart bin will open..
Enjoy the bin
