Smart Bin Sensor

Receive accurate measurements with our advanced optical flow sensor in your smart waste bin

WasteHero sensor

Optical smart sensor technology is the best choice

  • Optical sensing technology gives 16 referring measurement points, which allows for accurate evaluation of the waste volume and the review of 3D graphs of waste placement within your containers
  • Unlike ultrasonic sensing technology, optical sensors have no blind spots from 0-4 metres, allowing for accuracy in even the smallest containers

Ultrasonic Sensor

  • Ultrasonic sensors have just one referring measurement point and blind spots which result in inaccurate reports about waste volume and its placement
  • Ultrasonic sensors have blind spots up to 40cm from the device, which makes them unsuitable for small bins
