Bins more Bins and dumpsters are being used to throw away huge pieces of waste or junk and a lot of it. Garbage trucks are one of the most mercyless things I have seen on this earth. It is probably because they are large and monsterous as they mash and chop up anything that gets placed inside. Garbage trucks do what they are designed to do and that is to crush and compile garbage without regard to the value of what's inside.
In creating and using machinery that has the potential to harm human life there needs to be somewhat of a preventative measure that provides garbage truck operators the capacity to salvage the living that may be placed inside a truck as a result of being placed inside of a bin or dumpster. A garbage truck compacts garbage to be recycled or thrown away and the people who operate such machinery empty whatever bin or dumpster they encounter on their route. Trucks need to be made to acknowledge human life as well as humans need to put themselves in the situation of not wanting to be compromised by a garbage truck. Sounds morbid and absurd- I agree.
The point of this article is this: Garbage trucks need to be equipped to notice when living beings are placed inside. The electronic waste stethoscope is a highly durable stethoscope placed inside the compaction area of the garbage truck. The stethoscope uses an electronic sensor to transmit sounds of heart and lungs to a computerized software device-the stethoscope receiver that scans for living sounds and life.
How does this work?
Do I have to think of everything? First several stethoscopes are placed inside a garbage truck that occupy the left, right, upper, lower and inner back of the garbage truck. Since the stethoscopes are electronic one does not need to handle the stethoscopes in any way except for routine maintenance. The actual device that interprets the sounds is the stethoscope receiver that has software that enables one to listen to each stethoscope independently or select which ones that you need to listen to or you can select all of them. For optimum use you select all of the stethoscopes. You turn the stethoscope receiver on as this also enables the stethoscopes. Of course you choose all of the stethoscopes for audio and video(video in this instance means that the stethoscope receiver will show heart and or lung signals, if there is a presence of a living being). The stethoscope receiver is placed inside the truck where the drivers sit. Why? Because garbage trucks make so much noise that the garbage men with the standing room only area on the back balcony of the truck have enough to worry about. They ride standing on the back of a truck with no seatbelt or harness to protect them in instances where they can slip and fall in to traffic. Please take note: they are not doing this as the only truck on a countryside farm somewhere in the midwest. So there is very little room for error. Sure they wear the neon, but they still have ride issues that they need protection from; sudden stops, bad weather and reckless drivers. So we don't expect them to monitor the stethoscope receiver as well. As the garbage collectors dump bins and dumpster remains into the garbage truck if there is a sign of a living being the stethoscope receiver will immediately display where the signal is coming from along with an alert so that the garbage truck is stopped from compacting garbage until the living being is removed. Future development of the waste stethoscope will have it work in conjunction with the compaction portion of the garbage truck so that once an alert is shown or sounded the garbage truck will automatically be prevented from compacting until the living being or the cause of the sound is investigated and removed. There will be a manual override in the event of stethoscope or receiver malfunction. In that instance the truck should be repaired and garbage should be checked manually by a portable waste stethoscope.
The waste stethoscope- not everything is garbage!
