System for automatic electronic identification of waste bins and containers, real-time wireless transfer of all information and data access from a remote location. The system enables individually charging users for waste collection depending to volume, number of collections or overall mass in accordance with valid laws and regulations.

EcoMobile-system components

Ease of use

Container identification is fully automatic. The system uses special RFID antennas installed on garbage truck lifters to automatically detect RFID tags fitted on the bins and containers. No additional actions by the workers are required; the system does not affect the usual work processes.

Pay per throw

Data about completed container emptying is submitted to a server after the sensors detect that the container was placed on the lifter and that the loader is in the emptying position.

Verifiable end results

After the sensors detect that the container was placed on the lifter and that the loader is in the emptying position, all data about the finished process is sent to a server.

Full data transfer in real time

All data is submitted to the EcoMobile cloud app wirelessly (GPRS) and forwarded to existing billing software (ERP).

Durability and adaptability

Each system component is made to withstand all weather and working conditions. The components are extremely adjustable and can be used with any type of waste collection vehicles.

Central computer

The central computer is installed in the vehicle cabin. It is used for storage, processing and wireless transfer of all data wirelessly to the cloud app in real time. The data is received from the controller unit that is connected to the antennas, sensors and irregularity report push button boxes.

Controller unit

The controller unit is installed in the back of the vehicle. A CAN bus hub is used to communicate with each system component and to forward data to the central computer. The controller unit (including the connectors) has IP67 level protection.

RFID antennas

The antennas are installed on the hydraulic lifter “comb”. The antennas automatically read RFID tags on waste bins and containers. They are integrated in robust housings made of highly resistant industrial plastic. The antennas can be used with all types of waste collection vehicles.

Visual and sound alerts

Alerts correspond to each process and they provide additional information to waste collectors (successful/failed reading, irregularity reports, blacklisted users).


Irregularity report push button boxes

The push button boxes are used for simple electronic reporting of any irregularities noticed during waste collection, such as improperly dumped waste in the container or overfilled waste containers.

Handheld RFID reader

EcoMobile handheld reader is an industrial-level RFID reader and barcode scanner intended solely for use in waste collection processes. Aside from the installed application for linking RFID and barcode codes, additional options are available, such as wireless communication with EcoMobile identification system for waste collection vehicles, EcoMobile Waste Access Control system, GPRS and GPS.

Automatic identification

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.

Black list

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).

RF communication

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.

CAN bus

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.
