Smart Bin Product Development
In city many times we see that the garbage bins or dustbins placed at public places are
overflowing. It creates unhygienic conditions for people. Also it creates ugliness to that place. At the same time bad smell is also spread.
To avoid all such situations we are going to implement a project called Garbage collection bin overflow indicator using GSM technology. In this project we are going to place a Ultrasonic sensor under the dustbin. When the Ultrasonic sensor reaches to the threshold value, a sms will be sent to the respective Municipal / Government authority person. Then that person can send the collection vehicle to collect the full garbage bins or dustbin.
In this project we are using ultrasonic sensor, GSM module for wireless communication. The
modem provides the communication interface. It transports device protocols transparently over the network through a serial interface. The GSM modem is a wireless modem that works with a GSM wireless network. A wireless modem behaves like a dial-up modem. The main difference between them is that a dial-up modem sends and receives data through a fixed telephone line while a wireless modem sends and receives data through radio waves.
We have observed that the municipal officer or the government authorized person will monitor the status of dustbin. Generally we see that they have a regular schedule of picking up these garbage bins or dustbins. This schedule varies as per the population of that place. It can be once in a day or twice in a day or in some cases once in two days. However we see that in case there is some festival or some function, lots of garbage material is generated by people in that particular area. In such cases the garbage dustbin gets immediately full and then it overflows which creates many problems. So in situations, with help of our project the government authority person can get SMS immediately. So they will get SMS before their periodic interval visit of picking up the dustbin. Then they can go and pick up the dustbins.
