FIWARE-Ready: TST Sistemas - TSwasTe (Internet of Things,Open Data,Data Analytics)

TSwaste is a low-cost sensing solution for urban waste containers. The device is equipped with an ultrasonic sensor and a bi-directional communication feature to monitor waste levels.

Equipped with an ultrasonic sensor, it is able to monitor different waste management-related parameters such as the waste level, the temperature, or the container position. By using the bi-directional communication feature the device supports the advanced functionality of remote configuration and re-programming via the web software interface. It can be easily installed in most of the common waste containers or any other storage tank.

The TSwasTe enclosure is made of injected high-density polyethylene, the same material used in most waste containers. The material is shock-resistant and optimized to work under extreme weather conditions. It will protect the device in a harsh environment with frequent garbage collection and cleaning procedures, especially protecting from the chemical substances used.

The TSwasTe is a stand-alone device supporting different network technologies: GPRS, Sigfox, LoRa, NB-IoT, WiFi, or ZigBee. A management software tool is provided to show the information in a friendly web user interface allowing advanced features such as device configuration, statistical records, alarms, and user management.

Continuously check waste container filling levels to send alarms when the pickup time comes and optimize collection routes. In addition, it offers a way to implement a quicker reaction to unfortunate events (e.g. fire).
