This project is about the monitoring system for the Smart Bin in UniMAP, by implementing the Internet of Thing (IoT) and monitoring using the Favoriot platform. The user can monitor the data at any time and anywhere by accessing the system itself to know the condition of the Smart Bin. By having this monitoring system features, the Waste Management workers do not have to go to the Smart Bin itself to know the condition of the bin. The monitoring can be done through the system, or wait for any notification that sent from the system.
This project will involve software and hardware part. For hardware part, micro-controller and a sensor network consisting of Ultrasonic sensor to detect the level and also the Ammonia gas sensor with buzzer alarm to notify the user if they throw the odor waste inside the bin. While software part, the code will be written specifically for the selected microcontroller. This waste management system consists of two main elements which are the level detection of the smart bin and the odor detection with buzzer alarm.
