Smart Garbage Bin Tracker using LoRaWAN

By Surya Igor | Internet of Things

Following my earlier post on Introducing the Microchip RN2483, I am writing this application blog post to showcase how LoRaWAN can be used for enabling waste management by means of a smart garbage bin. LoRaWAN provides long range wireless communication with ultra-low power consumption that enables very long battery life.

We built a proof of concept for garbage bin level tracking device, based on Raspberry Pi + Arduino Uno, and then optimized it further with a custom circuit to make a production grade bin level sensor(BLS) for smart city use cases. In this post, we will show you how you can quickly hack together a proof-of-concept of a functional smart garbage bin on Raspberry Pi using LoRaWAN. For more details about the custom BLS, please get in touch with us.
