EYEfi’s Smart Sensor system, is improving the way City of Melbourne’s waste services manage rubbish collections, by utilising EYEfi sensors located in street bins across the central business district that automatically monitor bin fill levels, using ultrasonic sensors and the cloud-based application.

The system generates dynamic data on fill rates, fill profiles and other key metrics that helps ensure bins are positioned in the best locations to service demand. This in turn enables performance improvements and greater efficiency of the bin network and waste collections.

“The system provides entirely new data and intelligence for customers on their bin networks,” says  Simon Langdon EYEfi’s Managing Director.

Each sensor can  provide alerts to waste management teams when waste in a bin reaches a particular level, eg, 80%. The platform automatically calculates dynamic collection schedules and navigational information and delivers this to drivers on their smartphone, so collections can be executed in the most efficient way. The system’s proactive alerting features enable waste services to prevent rubbish overflowing onto streets, into drains and waterways, before it becomes a problem,” Langdon explains. “It also enables a more transparent and productive service while reducing operational costs.”
