Trash containers can often fill up too soon, and most of the time there is no real-time information on waste bin filling levels. Waste is typically collected on a fixed schedule, while the pick-up routes are not adapted to the actual level of waste in dumpsters. Same routes are always used, which is leading to inefficient waste management in a city, and also unnecessary CO2 emissions and traffic complications.
LoRaWAN sensors are IoT devices created to function on LoRaWAN networks. These networks are particularly useful for wireless sensors due to their ability to transfer data across long distances. They also have high-performing link margins that reach signals below the radio frequency (RF) noise floor.
Low-power connected ultrasonic sensors are placed in the bins, the connectivity being managed by Actility’s high-performant LoRaWAN™ network management server. The sensors measure the level of waste and notify the waste management company whether the container is at full capacity or when it needs to be emptied. The sensors also provide valuable data about dumpster usage, emptying cycles, and more.
