SmartBin is a global SaaS solutions company, based in Dublin, Ireland, which provides intelligent monitoring solutions for many types of remote waste container assets.
SmartBin is collaborating with ALMANAC to develop a platform which can unite and manage a broad range of existing and dissimilar municipal applications, services and systems and thus overcome the hurdle of implementation of Smart City projects.
- SmartBin lets us access real-life data about the fill levels of waste containers. This is an ideal basis for testing the functionality of the ALMANAC platform. And this information is also invaluable for profitability forecasts and for the evaluation of business models, says Dipl.-Inf. Marco Jahn, from Fraunhofer FIT.
At the moment ALMANAC focuses on collecting data and on integrating existing waste management and water management applications, because here pollution and cost can be significantly reduced without fundamentally altering the existing hardware and software infrastructures.
