Sensors to measure the filling level of waste bins are sought by a German city council

A German city council is seeking an industrial partner who can provide smart sensor systems for the city’s waste bins. The waste bin filling level should be measured based on a long range wide area network (LoRaWAN). Partners are sought to equip the waste bins within a commercial agreement with technical assistance.

The overall objective of a smart city is to improve the quality of life for the citizens and to boost economic growth. The council of a German city with about 50.000 inhabitants has decided to start a smart city process. 

The milestones in their smart city strategy include the reduction of the pollution of nitrogen oxide and carbon dioxide. Within the strategy the public energy provider is furthermore developing a long range wide area network (LoRaWAN)  gateway system to enhance the local digital infrastructure. 

To optimize the waste collection routes the city administration is searching for a digital LoRaWAN  based sensor system for post-mounted waste bins in public areas. Most of the common sensor systems for filling level measurement are incompatible with the waste bins used in the city.

Sensor providers are sought for commercial agreements with technical assistance. The partners should accompany the introduction and implementation of the new solution.
