Abstract

Included is a method for autonomous robotic refuse container replacement including: transmitting, by a processor of a first robotic refuse container, a request for replacement to a portion of processors of robotic refuse containers; receiving, by the processor of the first robotic refuse container, a return signal from a portion of processors of the robotic refuse containers; transmitting, by the processor of the first robotic refuse container, a confirmation for replacement to a processor of a second robotic refuse container in response to a return signal received from the processor of the second robotic refuse container; instructing, by the processor of the first robotic refuse container, the first robotic refuse container to navigate to a second location from a current location; and instructing, by the processor of the second robotic refuse container, the second robotic refuse container to navigate to the current location of the first robotic refuse container.
