IOT. Smart trash cans that remotely warn if they’re full, if they smell bad, or if they’re being set on fire. Values are sent to ThingSpeak

To help city councils or another government institutions my students have created a system that send different information about the public waste bins. This is a prototype.

This system send periodically information to ThingSpeak about:

Level of trash
Quality of the air
In function of these values actions can be done. For example, if the trash is full or the quality of air is poor would be interesting to send the trash truck to pick the same. With Fire signal you can monitoring if the trash bin is burning and send the firemen.”
