Smart Garbage Bin An IoT Platform for Smart Waste Management System in Pakistan


Internet of things (IoT) is an emerging field which is increasingly becoming influential instrument in daily life. It endeavors to provide comfort and easiness in doing day to day activities in life. Moreover, it has increased the effectiveness of tasks by reducing the time span of the activity and augmenting its accuracy. It is being done with the help of internet service. IoT connects the activities with internet where it becomes easier to watch and monitor the process and the progress of the activity. Internet, the most important phenomenon of the 21st century, has become a common norm in the society. Thus, IoT is making use of this dynamic feature of human innovation to add more innovative techniques to human lives. Besides all these innovation, human race has been subject to daunting and detrimental challenges which are putting its survival at risk. The problem of accumulating garbage is the most important one. The gigantic amount of waste material is also a big threat to climate of the earth. It is sine qua non to have a special mechanism to deal with the hectic task of collecting and transporting garbage in cities, however, recycling is another dimension of this huge problem. The focus of this research is to come up with a remedy for the problem of ever-increasing garbage. Here, an IoT based costeffective system has been developed. It has the capability to monitor the garbage in real time by using smart technology with the help of WeMos and Ultrasonic sensors. This system makes use of electronic devices and ThingSpeak platform to minimize the expenditures and time duration in the collection and transportation of the waste. This concept is unique in itself as it makes garbage bins able to communicate their status, periodically, to the authorities. This data can be seen on internet and it is not bounded by any specific location as internet is a global phenomenon and so do the proposed system.
