Smart trash can-ultrasonic sensor detects overflow of trash

- Jul 30, 2020-


In recent years, with the continuous development of smart cities, an important aspect of the development of smart cities is waste management. The intersection of waste management and smart city development gave birth to "smart waste management". Smart cities are using the Internet of Things (IoT) to create an effective system to save city money and save the environment. Let's understand the role of OSENON ultrasonic sensor technology in the development of smart cities through the principle of optimizing smart garbage collection paths.

The main way that smart waste management is affected by technology is route optimization.


Waste management or waste treatment is all the activities and actions required to manage waste from the beginning to the final disposal. This includes collection, waste transportation, treatment and disposal, and monitoring and management. It also includes legal and regulatory frameworks related to waste management, including guidance on recycling. This enables the use of the Internet of Things to achieve smarter waste management and better management services.


What makes smart waste management so smart? Waste management companies rely on technology to reduce the time and resources allocated for waste management. Sensor-based technology is the key to developing smarter solutions for solid waste management.


Benefits of using route optimization and connecting waste management services:


Whether you are using a solution provided by the city or a contracted company, waste management services can make your environment cleaner. One of the biggest problems solved by smart waste management solutions is route optimization. Waste management is not the only industry affected by route optimization. Freight (logistics) is also the main adopter of route optimization.


The main reasons for using route optimization are:

Reduce the mileage of vehicles in the fleet.
Cut costs (labor/maintenance/fuel, etc.)
Save time-increase productivity.
Determine the most cost-effective route.
Respond to customers better
Plan routes or spend less time on stops that do not require service.
Check driver performance
Avoid transportation delays while tracking the fleet in real time.
The way to collect waste is smarter, reducing overall transportation and collection by 50%.


How does the OSENON ultrasonic sensor achieve full garbage detection?


Smart waste management is a necessary solution. How does the sensor specifically used to detect the filling level of waste work: send ultrasonic waves from the ultrasonic sensor to measure the fullness of the waste bin. The time difference between sound wave emission and reception is used to judge the distance between the garbage surface and the lid. When the distance is small to a certain extent, the OSENON ultrasonic sensor measures the returned data, which can be analog or digital. The data is collected and sent through the cellular network for analysis and display on the customer's web-based platform. The OSENON ultrasonic sensor uses ultrasonic waves to measure distances in order to communicate with the management company, regardless of whether the trash bin is full and needs to be repaired. The management company will be able to predict when the trash bin will overflow based on the collected data.


OSENON ultrasonic sensor detects overflow of trash

For example, the trash can ultrasonic sensor-OSENON ultrasonic sensor module (with circuit and output), an ultrasonic sensor that detects the capacity of the trash can. Used to detect the filling situation in the trash can to determine whether the trash can needs to be emptied. Customers can add wireless modules and batteries according to their needs. The OSENON sensor can be installed in the trash can or trash can and connected to the monitoring system. The monitoring system can transmit whether the trash can is full (or close to the trash can). If the waste container is full, place it on the route to be collected. Trash bins that do not fill up quickly will not be collected on the route.


Features of OSENON ultrasonic sensor:
1. Small blind spot;
2. Small beam angle;
3. Products with circuits have extremely low power consumption and can be equipped with batteries;
4. Diverse appearance and structure, cooperate with installation;
5. Customers can also choose to purchase independent sensor probes and design their own circuits.
