Abstract: Nowadays, there is still much plastic waste floating in the sea and rivers, causing a limited number of officials to take care of this waste is not thoroughly. In this paper propose to develop the low-cost auto robot from waste materials based on Internet of Things for grabbing and collecting the floating garbage in the closed of water pool. The sensors and motors were mixed to control the robot on water surface and collect the plastic floating waste which is detected by sensors. To classified the floating garbage, the Fast Approximation Nearest Neighbor algorithm was applied to system in the web platform. The activities for garbage collection were submitted to social media such as LINE notify application. As a result, the auto robot system has the accuracy value at 94.4% and 98.8% for stationary mode and cover mode respectively.
