App estimates bin fill to improve collections

The BabelBins app from ISB Smart Solutions is fully automated and can forecast levels inside waste bins with great accuracy using advanced algorithms. The app runs automatically in the background, and gives waste companies the visibility they need to achieve cost savings.

Bin fill levels are read at set intervals, and it then processes the data and forecasts fill rates. This enables operators to determine when the bin will reach its maximum fill level and define the best time to make a collection.

This provides maximum flexibility for the routing engine to generate routes that meet agreed customer service levels, minimises logistics and trucking costs and maximises truck load capacity utilisation. The carbon footprint is also cut thanks to reduced vehicle mileage.

The bin hardware, sensors and data collection service are provided by British Bins and SwissLogix, and the system uses Bluetooth beacons to track each bin’s location, Lora data transmission for high-density areas and radio-frequency ID for bin identification at the time of collection.
