Efficient waste management is essential to maintaining a clean and green environment. To accommodate the increased waste generation of a dense residential area, NEXCOM's in-vehicle computer VTC 1010 has been used on garbage trucks with the aim to improve the efficiency of the collection, transportation and disposal of urban waste, while reducing operational expenses.
With VTC 1010 in place, several service and operational improvements have been achieved. Drivers no longer need to manually weigh or estimate the volume of waste collected, and document when and where the garbage bin was collected and which residence it belonged to. The information can now be digitally processed by the VTC 1010 connected to lift scales, GPS, RFID readers and cameras, allowing operators to easily and accurately calculate bills for each residence, and provide proof of collection images taken by cameras.
Moreover, with the VTC 1010 providing GPS, WWAN and CAN bus 2.0B connections, operators can track vehicle locations and driving behavior, dispatch jobs and provide optimal routes to landfills or recycling facilities to reduce transport costs and improve operational efficiency.
