Let’s consider the example of waste collection and management. Deploying IoT and related technologies can address some of the predominant challenges in solid waste collection very effectively. IoT-enabled waste collection and transportation can bring in significant advantages in the overall implementation of waste collection solutions. Fuel consumption can be reduced with lesser truck trips to collect the waste if they know exactly when the bin is full and ready to be taken. Composting and compacting the waste would help solve the problem, again, a solution offered in smart waste management solutions.
Technology and the products thereof, are growing at a rapid pace since the last decade. For example, electric vehicles that are set to replace fuel run cars will turn the course of future cities. For which, smart city can provide a distributed network of charging stations.
Implementation of technology is not only oriented towards efficient lifestyle but also environmental benefits. Masstrans gives out a wide range of products that cover most aspects of smart cities. Approach with a problem and depart with an everlasting solution.
