How a LoRaWAN-Based Waste Management System Works

LoRa Technology enables connectivity, real-timeAnalytics, Reporting and additional functions such as geolocation



1. Sensor embedded with LoRa Technology are placed on bins


2. Sensors periodically report the fill rate of the waste bin


3. Gateway sends information to the network where the data is analysed by an application server



4. Application server creates an optimized trash route indicating which waste bins need to be emptied


5. The optimized route is sent to drivers via computer or mobile, so that they only empty full waste bins
