IOTA (MIOTA) –The Taipei city government that has only recently approved the implementation of IoT and blockchain, would have TWO install IoT sensors into the first three floors of their city hall building.
These sensors will measure the fill levels of their waste bins in real time and through the tangle network, store collected data to a protected and tamperproof ledger.
The government, which is smart city centered, has voiced plans for full building integrations in Taipei and will hold a future RFP to accomplish this task. This bodes well for IOTA because it is finally being put to real world use meaning that it can begin to directly interface with people and thus impact their everyday life positively.
Some might wonder why this is important until they realize the timeliness of this project.
IOTA (MIOTA) through TWOIOT is Saving Planet Earth from Extinction
With the growing population of human life on earth comes the increasing need to consume goods and where goods are consumed, wastes are bound to be generated.
The planet that sustains human life is in danger as a result of the wastes generated from man’s desire to survive.
In order to solve this problem of disintegration however, a team of developers have come up with a system that would help in more effective and efficient waste management.
IOTA (MIOTA) Smart City: TWO’s Solution
Moving with the current wave of reform in technology and consequently in the lives of people, Ham Karami, driven by the passion to change the way waste is managed, has come up with a system of waste management that would work using the Internet of Things and blockchain technology. He co-founded TWO with Michael Carmody and Andrzej Miller as the smart waste management company’s backend developer.
TWOIOT is an IoT hardware device that measures real-time fill levels of waste bin, considerably lowering the costs and resources incurred in waste management process. This approach is basically cost effective and is easily integrated. The device can optimize waste management in buildings as large as airports and can also be upgraded to smart city level deployments.
How IOTA (MIOTA) Comes In
Since what TWO does is to combine two things (Internet of Things and blockchain) to make waste management more effective, IOTA easily fits into the purpose of the project. This is because IOTA is the backbone for internet of things and also because it offers much more speed and efficiency than blockchain because of its tangle network.
TWO makes use of IOTA’s Tangle, thereby enabling it to have a new block-less distributed ledger that is scalable and lightweight.
IOTA provides this smart waste management attempt with the security, transparency and capability needed for future upgrades. When the time comes for micro-transactions to take place between bins and truck fleets, it wouldn’t be a problem because of the tangle network.
IOTA (MIOTA) Smart City: Amazing Results in the Nearest Future
It is amazing that the number of bins changed per day according to reports from Dublin airports has been drastically reduced to 93 instead of the former 1,200 and that is all thanks to the new bin technology.
The kind of future we stare in the face is one in which a truck comes to pick up people’s trash only when necessary, using tangle’s block-less distributed ledger. It also offers the opportunity of putting the waste collected to more resourceful use by recycling it faster.
The labour cost of having to dispose of your trash yourself also promises to reduce substantially.
