FULL DESCRIPTION

An innovative spin-off coming from a consolidated engineering SME based in Torino has developed a waste management solution. This product can quantify and measure waste bins filling level allowing a better management of waste and empowering people education in terms of sustainability (pay as you throw system) and making cities smarter.

The smart lock can be opened by people enabled through the system as the product is managed by a user friendly management software which can be integrated into third systems. The start-up is interested in commercial agreements with technical assistance with business organizations operating in the ecological and waste sector with a strong outlook on sustainable development.

This product is reliable and unique.
The quantification smart bin uses a patented optical technology, capable of monitoring waste without contact and without moving parts.

This waste management solution comes from a technological research and development company with many years of experience in designing and creating advanced solutions for the automotive, logistics, transport and industrial automation sectors as well as the most modern applications of the so-called Factory 4.0.

Aware of the complexity to be managed, the company has transferred the research and technological development know-how to the waste management sector to help waste management companies to better perform their business.

The product is the ecosystem of advanced and reliable technologies to organize, control and optimize waste management services in an integrated manner.

The study of these products, which are technologically advanced and patented, brought to the creation of a dedicated spin-off. The patented optical technology for waste collection is suitable for road waste collection, ecological islands, building shared waste collection.


Partner expertise sought:

- Specific area of activity of the partner: The ideal partner is a business organization operating n the ecological and waste sector with a strong outlook on sustainable development.
The company expects to guarantee immediate answers to ecological issues in compliance with current legislation. The ideal partner should consider waste as a resource.


Advantages & innovations:

The monitoring level smart bin checks the fill level using a patented optical technology. This technology integrates the most advanced algorithms to allow a reliable measurement in any bin, even in presence of bulky or irregularly shaped waste. This product overcomes the reliability limits of traditional solutions that are not able to make a correct assessment of the bin's fill level in many common situations.
The smart lock controls the opening of the waste bin lid, allowing the container to only be used by users authorized by waste management companies. The electronic smart lock is safe, reliable and suitable for any type of bin, it can be installed on new bins or on those already owned by waste management companies.
