This project aims to develop a simple handheld scanner that can detect five different types of plastic. At the end of the project, everything will be shared online so that also you can make one!

The Plastic Scanner project started as a graduation project by Jerry de Vos. It applied the technology developed by Armin Straller which is described in this paper. The final result of Armin’s paper was the ReReMeter Project, this is shared under a GPL 3.0 license therefore this project is also under the GPL 3.0 license. After graduation, Jure Vidmar has been helping out on the embedded systems!
