|Sensing||Distinguish the packaging from the other types of plastic.
Detecting the volume of trash in each bin and waste container.
|Reasoning||Keep track of the amount of trash in each waste container and define the most suitable one.
(*) Optimize the retirement of the trash minimizing the number of calls to the waste transportation company.
|Acting||The system will indicate with a light path the correct waste container.
(*) In case of simultaneous use of different employee the light paths will be of different colors.
Call the waste transport company when a container is full.
|Interacting||At the end of the day or when a bin is almost full the system will remind the user to throw out the trash.|
|Sensitive||Receive data from each bin of any commercial activity and also from the waste containers.
Understand when a bin or a waste container is full.
|Responsive||Indicate the best waste container in which the content of the bin best fit and the colour of the respective stripe.|
|Transparent||It is embedded in every bin and waste container.|
|Ubiquitous||The system could be applied to any shopping center's collecting area.|
|Intelligent||It’s able to identify the ideal waste container and let it know to the employee.
(*) A simple algorithm manages the minimizing of the number of call to the waste transport company.
