Sensors4Bins

  • sensor devices
    • strain gauges to measure the actual tonnage
    • humidity sensors to detect holes in the bin
    • gps to track the bin's location

Sensors4Bins

gateways connect over Low Power, Wide Area Networks (LPWAN); e.g., LoRaWan

the server serves the app and sends notifications and alerts
