To really understand the Internet of Things (IoT) requires application, implementation, and execution in the real world. IEEE IoT recently launched a program to provide the IoT community an interactive platform on which to engage with use cases, service descriptions, business models, and reference implementations that will be key to developing a vibrant IoT industry. This is a fantastic opportunity for you to contribute to the IoT cause, as well as get excellent exposure for your projects and ideas.
Smart waste management
- ICT CityPulse
Sean works for waste management deparment in the city. Recently his job has become somewhat easier and more envrionmental friendly. The new implementation of smart urban waste management allows for a more efficient waste collection, optimizing the way Sean used to collect waste. It provides useful information to the public by encouraging and promoting an easier and more environmentally friendly way of collecting waste. This happens by identifying and emptying bins and containers when they are close to their fill level, but not overflowing, at private households, enterprises and public areas. This ensures Sean and his colleagues won't waste time emptying half empty containers, and at the same time prevents the overflow of garbage in quickly filled containers. In addition, incentives can be brought forward to encourage citizens to produce less waste and recycle more.
