How IoT Solutions Can Improve Waste Management Processes


Waste disposal is a huge challenge for major cities. Today, government administrations in smart cities like Singapore, Dubai, Hong Kong, Amsterdam, Stockholm, Tokyo, Melbourne, Seattle, Chicago and Seoul have provided a massive push to incorporate technology into every aspect of their cities. The waste disposal process in many of these cities has transformed into a highly smart operation management activity. Today, civic waste management of any smart city is an interplay of on-field devices, or sensors, networked together to generate millions of data points; data thus obtained is then ingested into a cloud platform and fed through complex analytical frameworks to analyze and then to derive sensible, actionable inferences to better serve the citizens of that city. The whole process is automated with almost zero human interference.

Drone may have tracked tanker

The Japan Times

DUBAI - The "flying object" that flew over a Japanese tanker before it was rocked by a blast in strategic waters in the Middle East earlier this month could have been a reconnaissance drone, experts have said. The owner of the Kokuka Courageous said the tanker's crew saw a "flying object," just before a blast that caused a fire on board the vessel, sparking a crisis between Washington and Tehran. "The crew members are saying that they were hit by a flying object. They saw it with their own eyes," Yutaka Katada, head of Kokuka Sangyo shipping company, said the day after the mysterious June 13 attack. "We have received a report saying that something seems to have flew in, there was an explosion and it created a hole in the body of the ship," he told reporters in Tokyo.
