Given the rise in population and consequently waste across cities, traditional sweeping and waste collection methods are not currently adequate. Also in the name of mechanized sweeping, only the big prominent roads are cleaned using diesel operated, truck mounted cleaners which are too big & expensive to operate extensively across cities.
There is a need for the governments / municipal corporations to have a fleet of smaller, sustainable energy driven (battery operated), non polluting waste collection vehicles used extensively across all public areas and bigger housing societies. With the correct deployment, usage and monitoring of such fleets and their waste collection, greater efficiency in waste management at economical costs can be achieved and this in turn can make cities pollutant free. Add to this the technologies of IoT and the possibilities are endless.
