Sensoneo is a global enterprise-grade smart waste management solution provider that enables cities and businesses to manage their waste cost-efficiently, be more environmentally responsible and improve the well-being of people.

Through its unique smart waste management technology, Sensoneo is redefining the way waste is managed. The solution combines unique ultrasonic Smart Sensors (Single, Double, Quatro and patent-pending Micro-sensors) that monitor waste real-time with sophisticated software (Smart Analytics, Smart Route Planning and Smart Waste Management System) providing cities and businesses with data-driven decision making, and optimization of waste collection routes, frequencies and vehicle load. This results in overall waste collection cost reduction of at least 30% and carbon emission reduction up to 60% in cities.

Smart Hardware

Sensoneo designs, develops and manufactures its own sensors. They are ultrasonic, robust, water and shock resistant, and have a lifespan of over 10 years.

The sensors are fully functioning in a wide temperature range, and are set to measure from 15 cm to 255 cm. The sensors are flexible and can monitor any type of waste: mixed waste, paper, plastics, glass, clothing, bio waste, liquids, electronics, metal in containers of various types and sizes.

If required, the sensors can be outfitted with a built-in fire alarm and a vertical position sensor, which indicates if the container has tipped over.

Smart Software

Sensoneo Smart Waste Management

The data from Smart Sensors is processed and stored in the Smart Waste Management. Smart Waste Management System allows you to setup and configure sensors, monitor real-time fill level in bins, see planned and executed collection routes, deal with reports from citizens and manage your waste smarter.

Sensoneo Smart Analytics

Truly understand your waste with Smart Analytics. Learn how much and how fast city or business produces waste, what is the separates and general waste ratio, how effciently you use bins and collection routes. You can make data-driven decisions about capacity, separates and general waste ratio,and location of the bins.

Sensoneo Smart Route Planning

Smart Route Planning enables an automated management of the waste collection routes based on detailed pre-defined data related to waste collection vehicles, depots and landfills. This tool allows the operator to manage the collection routes by one click and utilize collection vehicles and FTEs the most effcient way in terms of time and costs. 

Smart Route Planning navigates vehicles via shortest, completely safe and fully accessible routes.

Citizen App

Sensoneo Citizen App informs citizens of the nearest available empty bin and enables them to be more environmentally responsible. By providing real-time feedback, they can help reduce overflowing and messy bins, making the city greener, cleaner and free of litter. Download Sensoneo Citizen App and get access to real-time data about the waste management in your area.

Nitra town

Nitra now saves up to 30% on the waste collection costs thanks to the Sensoneo solution. 

Problem

Company description

NKS - Waste management services of Nitra (98 employees) is a modern supplier of waste management services who regularly updates its fleet of waste collection vehicles, centralizes the container stands by using large-capacity and semi-underground bins, and intends to optimize its processes to minimize the cost and environmental impact by the deployment of smart technologies.

  • 48,500 Tons of waste collected
  • 23,500 Containers under NKS management
  • 150,000+ Inhabitants live in the area that NKS manages

Problem description

An Instant increase of large capacity & semi-underground bins motivated NKS to implement a solution that would maximize the benefits of these types of containers. NKS has also set other goals that would enable them to manage their waste more effectively and efficiently: 

  1. Identification of opportunities to reduce the costs related to fueling vehicle wear and working hours 
  2. Avoiding collection of empty and half-empty containers 
  3. Elimination of an excessive environmental footprint  

Solution

Solution

1.step:  Smart Sensors and Smart Waste Management System

In march 2015, we installed the first 130 ultrasonic IOT Smart Sensors to monitor the levels of waste in the semi-underground bins. The sensors are manufactured by Sensoneo, and are built to the highest standards to ensure 100% functionality and security. Having verified the functionality and the benefits of sensors, NKS decided to expand the pilot project in 2 additional stages in 2016 and 2017 and also installed sensors in their glass containers.

  • 134 Sensors monitoring semi-underground bins
  • 192 Sensors monitoring containers for glass

The data from Smart Sensors is processed and stored in the Smart Waste Management System power by Sensoneo. In addition to the overview of actual waste levels, the tool provides semi-automated planning of optimal collection routes along with different types of statistics, reports and predictions.

2. step: Smart Analytics

The data acquired from Smart Sensors are further processed and evaluated to enable the client to truly understand the waste they manage. Thanks to Smart Analytics, client sees in very detail how specific parts of the city are producing waste - how much and how fast, what is the ratio between separates and general waste, what is the average level of the waste and how effciently they use bins and collection routes. Client is thus able to wisely plan capacity, ratio and location of the bins based on real data.

Results

 Nitra now saves up to 30% on the waste collection costs thanks to the Sensoneo solution.  

Thanks to deployment of the Sensoneo solution, NKS was able to significantly decrease the number of collection routes and so to save the costs related to fueling, vehicle wear and working hours. Sensoneo identifies the containers which need to be collected and suggests the optimal collection routes. As a result, NKS is collecting only those containers which really require to be emptied. Thanks to this approach, NKS do not unnecessarily block the streets with the waste collection vehicles and eliminates the environmental footprint of the waste collection process.

On the other hand - thanks to the monitoring system - the company is able to act quickly in case of a sudden fulfilment of the containers. The citizens thereby benefit from clean city free of litter and constant availability of containers with suffcient free capacity. As a long-term goal, NKS plans to install another volume of sensors to monitor small bins placed in the city centre area and would like to implement another Sensoneo service – Smart Route Planning, which would enable the management of waste with the focus on the highest eciency, waste type and vehicle type. The intelligence includes fleet, depot and landfill management.
