WASTE BIN ROBOT WINS JANUS AWARD
B.A.R.Y.L., the waste bin robot designed by SNCF Gares & Connexions and AREP Designlab and developed by Immersive Robotics, has been awarded the JANUS Label of Excellence by the French Institute of Design.
B.A.R.Y.L is an interactive mobile waste bin that both entertains travellers and arouses their curiosity: when a traveller waves at it, the robot wheels its way through the crowd to collect waste, thus ensuring a cleaner environment.
Created in 1953, the JANUS label honours innovative companies that put forward a sustainable approach in their endeavour to provide services to people, businesses and cities.
