The project consists of a Wi-Fi based sensors installed in the container lid. Each device will have a unique ID so as to know to which area the container belongs. The sensor measures the container filling level using ultrasonic technology, temperature using temperature sensor and periodically transmits all captured information to the Artik. The device can “talk” to the waste management company and thus can tell them whether the container is at full capacity, when it needs to be emptied, what temperature the container is at, and more, allowing the sanitation specialists to work more efficiently and cut unnecessary costs. Additionally, the sensors can help the company forecast when a dumpster will be full, allowing them to plan ahead future routes.
