This solution is powered by photovoltaic (PV) panels and batteries, and monitors the temperature, humidity, ambient illuminance, and trash level inside a waste bin. It also can also detect human proximity and offers buttonless control. In addition, the Narrowband IoT (NB-IoT) module allows maintenance messages to be transmitted if the waste bin is full or in a hazardous situation.

System Benefits​:

  • New generation RL78 MCU with low-power performance and an enhanced capacitive sensing unit (CTSU2L) supports touchless button solution lessening concerns over contaminated surfaces.
  • High-performance and quality sensors can detect multiple environmental data.
  • Low power design and high-performance power system supports green energy.
