THE PANDORA PLATFORM
Currently, most municipal and commercial waste collection operations focus on emptying containers according to predefined schedules at a set frequency. This system is inherently inefficient, with half-full bins being emptied, poor use of city assets, and unnecessary fuel consumption. Sensa Networks utilizes machine-to-machine (M2M) wireless communications to allow for the automation and optimization of these waste management operations. This, in turn, enables organizations to achieve significant cost savings and operational efficiency.
Sensa can track equipment and system performance over time and indicate if your assets are working correctly and efficiently in real time. By tracking compactor/machine performance, service calls can be scheduled well in advance of an actual breakdown, thus reducing repair costs and leading to fewer replacements. Patterns or trends can also be identified among a network of machines. The remote sensing equipment enables managers to detect and rectify misuse of company assets – a common cause of breakdown.
