The project aims at optimising waste collection by building an intelligent waste collection platform based on optimisation processes combining business, client and operational criteria. Using data provided by sensor technology directly integrated into waste containers, the platform will be able to track the status of decentralised waste collection stations, in particular regarding how full the various containers are, and determine what logistics operations are needed at the most relevant point in time.
