Existing waste containers are equipped with a small sensor that measures their fill levels as well as a variety of other data points. The small footprint and sophisticated technology of our sensors allows them to be placed in any type of container, regardless of their shape, size or their contents. Thanks to our proprietary technology, Nordsense is first company able to measure the fill levels in waste bins lined with plastic bags.
High accuracy 3D topology
Our optical sensor is equipped with a 256-pixel resolution that enables it to produce 3D depth maps of a bin's content. This dramatically increases the accuracy of the sensor as it provides multiple reference points, rendering false positives a thing of the past.
The sensors are able to detect movement and orientation within the container. This allows you to detect when the containers are being emptied, which provides you the transparency to see whether the services you are paying for are being performed.
Size and Content Agnostic
Being able to read targets up to 5 meters away and not being affected by the contents or shape of the container, whether solid or liquid makes the Nordsense POD a great choice for all use cases.
The length and width of our smallest POD are similar to that of a credit card, with a depth of only 3cm. This, coupled with their black color, allows the sensors to be very discreet when installed. Despite the small size, battery life is over seven years.
No blind spot
Unlike ultrasonic sensors, which are unable to measure any object in the first 25-30cm, our product has no technological constraints, making it perfect fit for even the smallest of bins.
