Digitalization in municipal technology and waste management

As part of the digital transformation, municipal waste management companies and city cleaning services have been dealing with topics such as robotics, sensor technology, artificial intelligence, automation and user interfaces for some time. Digital level measurement is one of the smart solutions already used or at least tested in many places. In this context, intelligent sensors in waste containers and bins help optimize waste collection routes and make them more dynamic; in other words, they are based on how full the bins are.

The vehicles and offices of municipal companies are also becoming smarter due to remote maintenance, route selection, fleet tracking, order management, and line data reports, for example. Machine-to-machine communication is predicted to continue its high development potential.
