Abstract

Solid waste management is a major challenge in urban areas throughout the world. An efficient waste management is a pre requisition for maintain a safe and green environment as there are increasing all kinds of waste disposal. There are many technologies being used for waste collection as well as for well managed recycling. In this paper we have introduced an integrated system combined of Radio Frequency Identification (RFID), Global Position System (GPS), General Packet Radio Service (GPRS), Geographic Information System (GIS) and Web camera. The built-in RFID reader in trucks would automatically retrieve all sorts of customer information and bin information from RFID tag, mounted with each bin. GPS would give the location information of the collection truck. All The information of the center server would up-dated automatically through GPRS communication system. GIS map server is being used for truck monitoring. In this system, bin and truck database has been developed in the way that information of bin and truck ID, date and time of waste collection, bin and truck GPS coordinates information, bin status and amount of waste are compiled in a data packet and stored for monitoring and management activities. The results showed that the real-time image processing, histogram analysis, waste estimation and other bin information have been displayed in the GUI of the monitoring system. The performance of the implemented system have been analyzed and focused that the system has satisfactory performance in terms of high speed data transmission, precision, real time data communication and reliability.
