San Francisco’s trash bins get smart
Starting this spring, 1,000 trash bins in San Francisco will be fitted with smart sensors that can detect how full they are. Optical sensors that will be mounted in the bins are part of a system that can track and learn from patterns of activity in the bins. The city can then use that information to make decisions on where to place the bins, when trash collectors should empty them and where recycling options might be needed.
