WSmart Route - Waste Collection Based on a Real Time Route Planning System
The WSmart Route project explores a new paradigm based on smart waste management, where real-time information plays a central role in changing the way operations are managed today. Recent advances in ICT make it possible to access information in real time through the use of sensors located inside the containers. However, access to the information collected by these sensors is not sufficient to increase efficiency in the waste collection operation by itself, making it essential to optimize the collection routes according to that information.
