CONTAINER FILL LEVEL MEASURING SYSTEM
The Smart Waste system consists of a wireless ultrasonic fill level monitoring sensor and a web oriented application. The sensor can be used with all types of containers, regardless of their capacity and waste type. Data from the sensor is submitted to the server wirelessly (GPRS) and it is immediately available for analysis via the software application.
By combining the recorded fill level measurements from the sensors with data gathered by GPS tracking of waste collection vehicles, the system automatically generates optimal collection routes providing up to 50% in direct cost savings in waste logistics. Through constant data analysis and by using special algorithms, the system is able to autonomously predict the time frames for reaching end fill level values for all containers, taking into account all available parameters (container type, waste type, location) to determine the type and number of vehicles required to cover the area. The sensor is built to operate in the harshest working and weather conditions and its integrated battery ensures operational autonomy for up to 10 years.
