Container identification is fully automatic. The system uses special RFID antennas installed on waste collection vehicle lifters to
automatically read RFID tags in containers while the containers are being emptied. No additional actions by the workers are required
and it does not affect the usual work processes.
Light and sound alerts
Signal equipment installed on the vehicle quickly informs the waste collectors of successful readings or reported irregularities
through antennas or peripheral units. It also notifies the waste collectors in case of missing or non-functional RFID tags,
as well as blacklisted users.
Automatic container emptying detection
The sensors detect the presence of containers on the lifters, i.e. the presence of RFID tags on the containers.
The second stage of detection is completed using sensors that respond when the lifter with the container is placed in the emptying position.
This finally confirms that the identified container has been emptied. The data is submitted to the server only after receiving confirmation
that the container in question has been emptied.
The system enables wireless transfer of blacklisted user data from the billing software (ERP) to the central EcoMobile computer
located in the vehicle. In case the owner of the container about to be emptied is blacklisted, the system will use appropriate light
and sound notifications to warn the waste collectors.
Data transfer from the mobile scale on the vehicle
EcoMobile system supports linking with a mobile scale on the vehicle lifter that weighs the bin or the container.
The user data and the weighed waste mass are submitted to the server in real time and are immediately made available
through the EcoMobile application.
Electronic irregularity reporting
The push button box system allows the waste collectors to easily report up to 6 different irregularities (overfilled containers,
improperly sorted waste, etc.).
Real time data transfer
EcoMobile central computer comes with an integrated GPRS module that enables full data transmission
in real time (emptied waste containers, reported irregularities, vehicle route, etc.).
Direct data transfer to user’s billing software (ERP)
After submitting and processing data, it is automatically input into user’s existing billing software (ERP).
Control unit installed in the vehicle comes with an integrated RF module for wireless data transfer from the peripheral
components (RFID access control, handheld RFID readers, etc.) within a 50-metre radius.
Satellite tracking of waste collection vehicles
GPS tracking provides precise information regarding the current status and location of waste collection vehicles, as well
as detailed listing of previous routes.
Driver and crew shift tracking
Central computer that is located in the vehicle cabin is also used for electronic login/log off for the driver and the rest of the crew,
which helps track the work hours for each employee. The employees use RFID cards or tags to easily login or log off.
Safe data storage
All data is saved to central computer’s safety memory, where it remains stored for two years, regardless of having been successfully submitted
to the server. In case of breakdowns or accidents, the data can be transferred manually using a USB stick or an SD card.
The communication (data transfer) between the components of the EcoMobile system is carried out through CAN (Controller Area Network)
communication protocol that ensures extremely high transfer speeds, as well as maximum security levels and data consistency.
Wireless software updates
The central computer has an integrated OTA (Over-the-air programming) system that enables wireless software updates.
