The waste container is an essential part of waste management in Singapore and is ubiquitous. Type of waste container can be from general waste to industrial waste, there is also a waste container for recycling.
This project aims to develop a smart waste sensing where waste status detail can be managed through a waste management platform via the Favoriot platform, providing instant access to information of the waste container, such as the capacity of the container, location, odor detection, smoke, and heat detection.
This would help reduce manpower and traffic, as the lesser trip will be needed to collect waste from waste container. As a result, it increases productivity and efficiency of the operation. While reducing the carbon footprint for the environment and traffic created by the waste collector.
[Note: This project is being done by the University of Glasgow Singapore, our FAVORIOT’s University’s collaborator.]
