The internet of things (IoT) attributes to uniquely identifiable objects and their virtual designs in an Internet-like structure; for instance, a waste bin could be “online,” allowing fill level data to be collected in real-time by the bin servicing company. Access to simple yet essential knowledge like this ensures tasks are performed to the highest possible efficiency saving money and decreasing costs.

Recently, Telensa, the world leader in smart street lighting and smart city applications, started working with FarSite Communications to combine its wireless bin monitoring into the Telensa smart city dashboard.

By expanding FarSite wireless netBin sensors, local governments and their contractor partners can get an immediate snapshot of the performance of their waste services, to improve efficiency and quality of service. Telensa is expanding netBin sensors as part of a test of smart city technologies in Essex and Hertfordshire, which also incorporates traffic, ravine, and environmental monitoring.

FarSite’s netBin is a wireless monitoring method for commercial and communal bins. It consists of wireless monitors stored inside each bin to measure fill level, tilt, and temperature, combined to a central management system that issues alerts, creates a portentous fill model and optimizes obtaining routing.

Telensa PLANet is a wireless central management system (CMS) that facilitates centralized remote control of outdoor lighting. It is made up of wireless nodes connecting individual lights, a wireless Internet of Things (IoT) interface, and a central management application. Data from light post and street-level sensors can be incorporated in the Telensa data hub, visualized by the Telensa dashboard, and made accessible to other city apps by the Telensa API set. Telensa technology already measures 1.5 million streetlights globally, including one in ten of the UK’s lights.
