Bin fill level monitoring is perfect when used in conjunction with an artificial intelligent routing system, as its all based on set criteria and what if scenarios. It's not just a case of when the compactor is 70% full they should be added to a route and then optimized for collection - its more based on what has previously happened, customer inputs, seasonal influences, industry standards / norms and then an automated action.
The bin fill monitoring hardware sensor that goes into the bin is called Fill X1 and we have 2 different Fill X1 sensors, the first is the 3G version for the compactors stationed in far flung locations (building sites or hospitals for example) and the second is the LORA / NB-IoT version for large business (shopping malls, service stations, restaurants, etc). With the LORA / NB-IoT version you only need 1 SIM card or Wifi connection to communicate the fill level to the back office, while with the 3G version you will need 1 SIM card for every device. The benefit of the 3G version is that the singular GPS is also sent to the back office as the compactor could change location.
