Abstract:
    Our idea is about automating the waste management system. Our solution will combine the smart sensors to monitor waste in real time and provide optimized routes to collect trash only when required.
What is the unmet need in society that your idea will fulfill ?
    Excessive fuel consumption and unhealthy living due to improper collection of waste. Because on average a truck following an optimal route could save approximately 7.5 liters of fuel per day and could reduce the harmful gas emissions promoting healthy environment which is an unmet need in society.
Who needs it ? How many would benefit ?
   Waste Management Organizations (Government, Private) , Commercial Establishments, Private Organizations, Medical Facilities.
How will the solution works
    Our solution combines the ultrasonic fill level sensor, weight sensor and gas detection sensor to monitor the amount of garbage filled, weight of the garbage and the release of harmful gases in real time.The collected sensor data is sent to our server and gets updated after every 15 seconds so that whenever specific garbage level is achieved or harmful gas is detected, truck driver is provided with optimized routes to those specific bins only, thus saving fuel,reducing gas emissions and cost.
Who are your competitors ? How is your solution different
    Our solution promotes enhanced cleanliness, provides dynamic routing, reduces gas emissions, reduces human time and effort along with minimized cost as well which gives it enough potential to be easily adopted by the waste management companies which are our primary beneficiaries.
