Quamtra aims to foster innovation in waste management by demonstrating the potential of IoT technology for optimising waste-management operational methodologies.
The collection of solid urban waste is an often non-optimized public service based on fixed, predefined routes and schedules. This leads to the misuse of equipment (over or under-utilized), and inevitably to wasted energy and higher economic costs (e.g. empty containers collected, non-optimized routes). The Quamtra Smart Waste Management System uses Q sensors installed in 286 containers to measure their fill levels and compiles and analyzes collected data in the Quamtra software platform.
