Description

Waste collection companies across the country collect millions of tons of trash and recycling from residential and commercial customers. Collection service verification is essential to operating efficiently and profitably. However, with any service, missed collections can occur, so companies need to be able to easily investigate and resolve a claim of no service before spending time and other resources to dispatch their assets a second time. The purpose of this project is to develop a software solution for the waste and recycling industry. In partnership with Top Mobile Vision (TMV), this project will integrate with existing cloud-enabled video hardware systems installed on trash and recycling trucks to extract the identifier of each bin as it is collected through the use of QR code stickers. The remote video monitoring system currently offered by TMV is not available when trucks are offline, and collection verification is infeasible without witnessing the bin lift in real time or downloading the videos afterward, which is not time-efficient. To resolve this, our solution offers a web application for complete awareness of what is happening with vehicles and drivers at all times while functioning as a reliable and user-friendly interface. In the future, QR code stickers will be distributed to more bins to reach more customers, which will save time and resources, resulting in higher customer satisfaction.
