The role of sensors and digital radio in the intelligent waste management technology of the Internet of Things

Global warming is causing climate change, which is driving governments to reduce their carbon footprint in line with the UN's 2030 Sustainable Development Goals. Forcing municipalities to turn to smart waste management technologies to improve waste recycling and collection.
Intelligent waste management technology, the word seems strange, how can waste management be worthy of such a tall word as intelligent management? Today, let's take a look at how garbage is managed intelligently. This article will let you understand why we see fewer and fewer garbage trucks.

With the exponential growth of the urban population and the increasing amount of waste discharged, how to deal with the waste has become a very difficult problem. According to the World Bank report, 2.01 billion tons of solid waste will be produced in the world every year. Most people may not know this concept very well. According to the current global population of 7.9 billion, an average of 250 kilograms of solid waste is generated per person, not including the Types of degraded waste. Among them, 33% of the garbage will pollute the environment, thus causing a huge pollution problem. How to solve this problem has become a problem that the society is concerned about.

In the past, at every point in time, garbage trucks could be seen going to a certain place for recycling on time. No matter whether there was garbage in the garbage bin, it was necessary to check it. This not only increased operating costs, but also increased to a certain extent. Carbon emissions cause a great waste of human resources. When there is a lot of garbage, it will also lead to the phenomenon of overflowing garbage bins.

IoT Smart Waste Management Technology

Global warming is becoming more and more serious, urging governments around the world to implement the UN's "2030 Sustainable Development Goals" and do everything possible to reduce carbon emissions. This has forced governments at all levels to implement smart waste management technologies to improve waste recycling and collection.

What the heck is smart waste management technology? Let's see together next!

The wireless communication system consists of three layers, namely the acquisition execution layer (sensor), the transmission layer (data transmission station), and the data processing layer (platform).

IoT Wireless Communication

As an important part of the data acquisition layer, the weight sensor is an important criterion to measure whether the trash can needs to be cleaned. The sensor collects the weight information, and the digital radio transmits the data collected by the sensor. After the data is transmitted to the management platform, the management platform sets a standard. When the weight reaches a certain level, personnel are dispatched to clean it up to reduce the number of empty trips.

Intelligent communication sensor and digital radio Internet of things application


Lower operating costs: Real-time information received from smart dumpsters helps optimize vehicle routing, saving manpower and fuel.

Unattended bins: Sensors detect the fill level of bins and notify authorities via cellular signal when bins are nearly full.

Data analysis of waste generation: Smart waste management solutions come with a data analysis platform that informs authorities of waste generation patterns and future patterns.

Reduced carbon footprint: IoT can optimize routes, thereby reducing fuel consumption and carbon footprint.
