Beta City YEG is looking to redeploy an open-source Internet of Things sensor system designed to monitor the fill level of municipal trash cans. This sensor system incorporates a cloud service that stores historical
data and triggers SMS alerts. This is based on a pilot project from San Luis Obispo, California by Timothy Ambrose, Corey Ford, and Michael Norris. It was brought to our attention by Greg Hermann, an employee of San Luis Obispo.Evaluation shows that the system operates reliably in realistic conditions.
