Smart Bin Sensors

Your waste containers are equipped with a small sensor that measures their fill-levels as well as a variety of other data points. Sensors can be placed in many different types of containers and used in a variety of bin sizes and shapes.


Smart sensors can help you embed data-driven decision-making in your waste management. Smart bin sensors provide you with full transparency of your waste operations, providing in-depth data insights that can help you improve your services. Data can be used to optimize your resources, cut back on costs, reduce your carbon footprint, improve your collection routes, create a better working environment for drivers, and measure the impact of sustainability initiatives.

Features

High Accuracy 3D Topology

Our optical sensor is equipped with a 256-pixel resolution that enables the production of 3D depth maps of a bin's content. With multiple reference points, false positives are a thing of the past with this high accuracy sensor.

Service Verification

Sensors capture accelerometer data every 15 minutes. This enables you to detect when containers are being emptied and provides you with full transparency of your services, so you can check whether the services you are paying for are being performed.

Benefits

Many Sizes and Content Types

The Nordsense sensor can read targets up to 5 meters away and can be used with the majority of container types and shapes, regardless of whether the contents are solid or liquid.

Small Footprint

The length and width of our smallest sensors are similar to that of a credit card, with a depth of only 3cm. With its black color and small size, the sensors are very discreet when installed.

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 the perfect fit for even the smallest of bins.

Frequently Asked Questions

Thanks to our choice of technology and its small footprint, a sensor can be installed in most container types and used with both solid and liquid contents. Our team will conduct a thorough pre-assessment of all your containers to ensure our sensors can match your waste needs. For containers with an open top (i.e. no lid), we will provide suggestions and designs for a bracket.
The sensors are very easy to install. They have two holes on the sides that are used to mount the sensor to the container. We provide a drilling template as a guide to secure the sensor to the container by using either nuts and bolts or rivets. It typically doesn’t take more than one minute to install a sensor. A user-friendly mobile application will guide you through the installation process.
Our sensors use the cellular network to communicate with our platform, and we currently operate in Europe, Israel, and North America. However, we have a worldwide roaming agreement with one of the largest telecom operators in the world, which excludes only a few countries that do not allow permanent roaming, such as Brazil and Saudi Arabia. Special agreements to use our sensors in these countries can be made upon request.
