Summary

Summary: 
This Slovak company is a global smart waste management solution provider that enables cities and businesses to manage their waste efficiently, improve the environment and the wellbeing of people.

Description

Description: 

The Slovak company established in 2014 is dealing with a modern and user-friendly solution that delivers the continuous monitoring of waste levels in containers via ultrasound sensors built into each container. The sensors are robust, water resistant, shock resistant, while their life spam is 10 and more years. They are built to fully function in temperatures from -40°C to +85°C and are set to measure up to 4 meters in depth, which can be extended if needed. The sensors have a built-in fire alarm and a vertical position sensor that indicate if container has tipped over.

The sensors are available in two sizes: single and double.
The single sensor can be used for container of any capacity (even in small containers of 120 l). Single sensors are controlled with 1 master sensor, which can manage up to 60 sensors. The single sensor is currently the smallest sensor on market, able to monitor on this scale.

The double sensor is recommended for big capacity containers and its life cycle may last over 5 years. Measuring with a double sensor is „double-ensured“ as one sensor controls the other and it totally minimizes any potential outages.

Information is transferred via mobile internet to safe storage and then displayed to communal service operators using the mobile application. The application displays necessary information about container locations and levels in a structured and graphical way. The solution can be fully integrated into the existing information systems currently used by the customer. The company´s smart waste management has attracted cities and business around the world and the solution is installed in more than 40 countries on 5 continents.
