Abstract

Tourism and pollution are closely related as humans are the main reason for pollution. Sungai Melaka is a popular tourist spot in Malacca, and it is important that it is well maintained to ensure that it will continue to flourish. This project develops a prototype of solar powered Smart water waste unit, which it is to be placed on the river to collect floating trash. The unit is powered by natural resources, which are solar and river flow hence giving minimal environmental impact. The development aspect which is covered in this paper is the machine elements of the unit. It consist of a water wheel which harvest energy from river flow, a conveyor that carries trash from the river to the bin and a rake system that collects and accumulate the floating trash at the mouth of the conveyor. The design of components are justified by calculations on the machine elements used to operate the unit such as gears, shafts, bearing and power transmission system. A prototype is fabricated at the end to justify the selected design based on Computer-Aided Design drawings supported by calculations and basic Finite Element Analysis.
