The mechanical mechanism to collect debris from hard surfaces is unique compared to existing systems because no extra vehicle is needed. Rather the mechanism is retrofitted under pre-existing vehicles, between the front and rear axles. Four primary design goals were considered when developing this machine; 1. create a system using existing vehicles to collect debris, 2. utilize the movement of these vehicles to power the sweeping mechanism, 3. ensure that all material (metallic and non-metallic items) is collected and stored in a safe receptacle until removal; and last, 4. fabricate a system that can be easily attached to, and detached from pre-existing vehicles. Ultimately, this machine has been designed for large, hard surfaces that need to be clear of debris. The mechanical mechanism designed and prototyped with input from industry experts and has been designed and tested as a full-scale system on an existing baggage cart. The sweeping mechanism is attached underneath the baggage cart between the front and rear axles and can be easily attached and removed by use of two clamps connecting the frame of the sweeping mechanism to the sides of the baggage cart. Additionally, the clamps contain a simple spring suspension that can absorb potential bumps from the ground to ensure the sweeping is continuous. The invention could be used to pick up debris from: stadium floors after an event, garbage facilities, construction projects, airports, sidewalks, and many other locations.
