As part of a master’s project for the Renault Design Academy Russia, a student named Renat Yakupov designed a robotic vehicle for the future of Russian autonomous mobility – and it’s a self-driving garbage-collecting robot. The concept of the robotic CLAIR LCV was intended for separate garbage collection in the suburbs and in the countryside.
CLAIR LCV consists of two independent driving modules that are connected from above. This allows it to take the cargo from the ground on its own using adjustable suspension. When in garbage collection mode, the CLAIR LCV has a special modular container with doors on its front and back where 40 robotic garbage ‘cans’ can be collected. All the garbage ‘cans’ glide along guided rails to prevent them from falling during transportation.

There are also bacteria-killing lights attached to the walls to maintain the cleanliness inside the robot. The modular container is made of light composite materials and has a dirt-repellent coating.
