ReSource International ehf. has carried out an initial study on what aspects should be considered in a smart bin project in collaboration with Reykjavík city and the partners from the Nordic Smart City Network (NSCN). The work showed that cities have common challenges in the field and that collaboration is a key component to accelerate the implementation of smart city solutions.

Reykjavík city and RSI have implemented a pilot project for smart bin solutions with different sensor providers (Sensoneo, Nordsense, Enevo). The sensors selected have different types of measurement and connectivity in order to test a full panel of solutions available on the market today. In addition, a LoRaWAN gateway was installed to test specific connectivity and network for smart city solutions. The Gateway/Network could be used to test other types of smart city solutions (lighting, parking, traffic, water, etc.).

This project was made in collaboration with:
