Identification

Modern monitoring IoT-sensors measuring the waste bin fill-level face multiple problems (e.g. high costs and establishing a stable connectivity to the sensors, resulting in lost data). These creates difficulty for monitoring bin fill-level efficiently in order to transition from static to dynamic collection schedules, hereby calling on new technology to address this challenges.

Static waste bin collection schedules cause major challenges in modern societies, as it results in unnecessary environmental burden and economic loss. Waste management workers spend too much time on manual work on a daily basis, dealing with overflowing bins and citizen complaints. WasteHero provides a complete system for efficient waste management and dynamic collections. The system consists of IoT sensors measuring the fill-level of bins, combined with a user-friendly software system. WasteHero provides you with an easy overview of all your containers and their fill-level, but also consists of a state-of-the-art route-planning system utilizing AI and deep neural networks for optimized dynamic collections of waste. The system provides you with both insights and analytics over your waste stream.
