Slimbak

Slimbak is an Internet of Things system that optimizes waste management in cities and parks. How? By equipping garbage cans with sensors that measure the extent to which it is filled. The technology in the sensors sends the information to a server that then automatically determines the optimal route to empty the garbage cans. Slimbak is Lemon's own initiative, as well as its first IoT test project.

LoRa technology

Slimbak integrates the LoRa technology. This is a new radio technology that Internet of Things applications often use. And so does Slimbak! More specifically, the LoRa technology sends the data from each garbage can to a server, and that server then automatically determines the optimal route for garbage trucks. Drivers of these garbage trucks obtain the information in list and map views.

Efficiency

Cities not only save time, but also money when using this efficient waste management system. In addition to information about the contents of a garbage can, Slimbak also provides other insights. It is for example possible to obtain statistics on behavioral patterns in a certain neighborhood. With these statistics, you are able to answer questions such as “where are extra garbage cans needed?” or “which garbage cans are no longer needed?
