Owing to a paradigm shift toward Internet of Things IoT , researches into IoT services have been conducted in a wide range of fields. As a major application field of IoT, waste management has become one such issue. The absence of efficient waste management has caused serious environmental problems and cost issues. Therefore, in this paper, an IoT-based smart garbage system SGS is proposed to reduce the amount of food waste. In an SGS, battery-based smart garbage bins SGBs exchange information with each other using wireless mesh networks, and a router and server collect and analyze the information for service provisioning. Furthermore, the SGS includes various IoT techniques considering user convenience and increases the battery lifetime through two types of energy-efficient operations of the SGBs: stand-alone operation and cooperation-based operation.
It will be very useful and can be installed in the Trash Cans at public places as well as at home. Here Ultrasonic Sensor is installed at the top of Trash Can and will measure the distance of garbage from the top of Trash can and we can set a threshold value according to the size of trash can. Here we have set the Threshold value of 5cm in the Program code. Here we have used Local webserver to demonstrate the working of this Garbage Monitoring System. The Ultrasonic Sensor is used to measure the distance with high accuracy and stable readings.
