Waste-Management System Rides Narrowband IoT Network


Sensoneo announces its readiness for the US’ first nationwide narrowband IoT network, which was launched by T-Mobile on July 19, 2018. The company has been testing its smart waste fill-level sensors in several locations across the USA to ensure 100% readiness of the devices once the IoT network goes live. 


As stated by T-Mobile, “NB-IoT is a low power, wide area network LTE-Advanced tech that offers benefits like low power usage, long battery life, and low device cost.” In addition to the NBIoT network, the Sensoneo solution is also compatible with other currently available IoT networks including Sigfox, LoRaWAN, BLE, and CAT-M. 


The Sensoneo system for smart waste management was developed in 2014. The company develops and produces several variants of inhouse-produced fill-level smart sensors that are able to monitor any type of waste in any type of bin. Fill-level information is transferred via all currently available IoT networks (or GRPS/GSM) to Sensoneo software, where it is used to provide users with data-driven decision making and the optimization of waste collection routes, frequencies, and vehicle load. The Citizen app is a free mobile application that informs citizens of the nearest available empty bin, type of waste, actual fill-level, and directions.  For more info, visit Sensoneo.
