Garbage Classification Education Application Design – Taking Shanghai, China as an Example

Conference paper
Part of the Advances in Intelligent Systems and Computing book series (AISC, volume 1211)


Since Shanghai has legislated household waste management in 2019, it has become a challenge for the public to classify garbage without necessary assistance. In this paper, we propose a framework for the design of the application of garbage sorting education. The framework considers three factors, i.e., usability, interactivity, and engagement. First, we use new technologies and some design guidelines to improve the usability of the framework. Second, we use interactive methods to make users understand how to recycle garbage resources. In addition, we provide personalized customization and feedback data, which could increase their sense of participation.
