Reverse Vending Machines

Reverse Vending Machines

Reverse vending machines in supermarkets are mostly used to accept empty containers. The empty containers, for example, a returnable bottle or drink box, are placed in the machine, weighed, and scanned. At the push of a button the customer then receives a receipt with the deposit value that is then paid out at the supermarket cash register. The accepted empty container can be sorted automatically into divided containers according to criteria such as material or color.

Further examples for reverse vending machines are vending machines for book and media returns in lending libraries.

As integral parts of these machines, digital cameras must provide good image quality and high resolution for the identification of goods.
