Abstract: In the present work, the design of the river garbage collecting is the main focus. Currently, trillions of bits of plastic pollute the ocean, rivers, lakes, and seas, killing marine life, destroying ecosystems, and causing a mess on beaches. Hence, removing the plastic from the water is crucial, but no one is sure of the best way to go about it. In order to deliver the goods more quickly, nearly the entire assembly process is automated today. In large-scale production, automation is crucial.  Water environmental contamination results from floating materials on the water surface for an extended period of time, such as aquatic plants, plastic bottles, and bags.

These floating objects typically do not disintegrate naturally or decompose slowly. By putting cameras on the riverside, the government management agency keeps an eye on the floating objects in the river in real time. To overcome this issue, we are creating a remotely operated waterway cleaning machine for this project. Our project's main goal is to gather all unwanted waste that is discovered floating on bodies of water while minimising labour requirements. We propose a river cleaning machine that will remove all floating waste particles from the river body. It is made up of two infrared sensors that detect waste particles and an ultrasonic sensor that detects the distance between the particle and the sensor. When the particles are detected, the machine moves towards them and collects the waste with the conveyor belt. This waste is collected in the machine's waste basket.
