Enevo provides smart sensor and analytics based logistics optimization solutions for the waste management and recycling industry.

The smart waste sensor is a core component in the Enevo ONe smart logistics solution which uses wireless sensors to both measure and forecast the fill-level of waste containers. The service automatically generates schedules and optimized routes for garbage collection.

The WE-008 container level sensor has been designed and built to accurately measure container fill levels in harsh environmental conditions. It uses ultrasonic sonar technology together with temperature and motion sensors  measure the container fill level, and detect important events that it then communicates to the Enevo ONe server using standard cellular networks.

”The key to success was to optimize the cost and battery life of the smart sensor without compromising reliability. This is achieved by attention to several design details, such as good cellular antenna design that saves in transmission power as an example”, explains Fredrik Kekäläinen, CEO of Enevo.

The Enevo smart sensor was tested in Espotel’s test laboratory in Jyväskylä. Check out the video.
