At MotoGP event, Thinxtra received a request from a local system integrator/consultant to monitor all the waste bins around the track (pavilions, stands & village) to ensure efficient service by the service provider (Cirka) during the MotoGP event on Phillip Island. Partnered with NZ device maker PiPIoT, Thinxtra delivered the IoT solution within a week, providing the location of the bins around the track and their fill level along the event day.
Bin management with the right decisions at the right time in Brimbank
Brimbank City Council’s first project was about ensuring that street litter bins were attended to at precisely the right time and avoid over servicing or under-servicing. There is a lot of variability in terms of usage of bins, highly dependent on time of the year, events, weather, etc. Having a standard service routine, will almost always mean servicing the bins either too early or too late, clearly less than optimal. To monitor bins, Brimbank was supported by Thinxtra to fast track IoT solutions towards more efficiencies via the Smart Council Program.
