HOW IT WORKS
Sensors are installed inside bins / bins are delivered with pre-installed sensors
When you receive the sensors, the sensors are preconfigured and running so that you don’t have to deal with sensor configuration, only focus on the application. Each sensor has a unique ID for identification and mapping to a bin.
Configure your bins
Once your bins are installed and in place, you login in your account and configure your bins by specifying bin zones, bin types and bins themselves. More specifically, for each bin is entered its type, allocation zone, address, and its mapped sensor ID.
GOOD TO GO!
You’re ready to start using the system. Optionally, you can install RFID tag s on the bins and RFID readers on the collection vehicle so that the system gets notified when a bin is emptied. Note that having RFID’s installed is not necessary in order for the system to function. If RFIDs are not present, the system can still produce reports for each bin and comparative statistics for overall zone statistics. The presence of RFID tags adds accuracy regarding the bin collection timestamp
WHAT IT CAN DO FOR YOU
Now that you’ve everything setup
Upon login you view the last state of bins. You can filter bins according to zone, fill level, waste material, etc.
You can view the history of each bin correlated with the overall history of the zone.
Access to possible alarms like those for low signal, open bin lid, etc.
Produce a report with a suggested optimal route for bin collection
Currently, there’s no management regarding bin allocation and bin collection. Collection vehicles follow a predefined static route stopping to collect each bin, regardless of its fill level. There’s also no feedback as to whether the bin allocation is optimal. This leads to:
Unnecessary fuel consumption due to not optimized Km-> Cost
Vehicle wear due to unnecessary starts and stops -> Cost
Collection takes more time than it should
Using Binalive, you gain visibility over your bin network. With the daily report, not only you know how many bins need emptying but the optimal collection routing as well. The savings from this approach can be up to 35%. In addition, by monitoring the behavior of bins in a specific zone, you are hinted as to whether you should change the allocation of the bin, add more bins or move slow-filling bins to another place.
End Result: Financial and Environmental Benefits
Financial benefits since
- Reduced number of collections
- Reduced number of trucks
- Reduced fuel consumption
- Reduced time required (labor cost)
- Reduced vehicle wear = servicing costs
- Reduced cleanup required
Benefits for the environment:
- Reduced CO2 emissions
- Reduced scattered waste
- Improved hygiene
Fully customizable User Interface
Any language can be provided, even non - European ones. In addition, reporting can be customized on demand if it is required.
Interface to 3rd party systems
In case you require Binalive to interface to a 3rd party system, we can provide it for you as long as it provides a standard interface. A typical example would be to export data to ArcGIS™ in order to allow for better bin spatial allocation by taking advantage of the GIS algorithms
We take the hassle of sensor configuration by providing preconfigured sensors using the settings of your choice so that you can focus on the application.
You can use your smartphone to receive alarms since our sensors will report anything unusual straight to Tweeter™.
