You’d be hard pressed to find someone who loves garbage more than Jason Gates, co-founder and CEO of San Francisco-based startup Compology.
In San Francisco, Compology is putting sensors in cans and tablets in garbage trucks to plan the perfect route.
Garbage collection can, unsurprisingly, be somewhat wasteful. Conventional practice dictates that trucks drive set routes through cities, picking up containers on a fixed schedule, whether they’re full or not.
The Internet of Things could solution by Compology uses sensors that detect garbage levels in city trash bins and notifies waste removal trucks when it’s time to collect.
