Lidbot, a tech company geared towards turning wastes or recycle bins into a smart bin, has just announce the commencement of its new IOTA Tangle-based smart sensors that will be used in the waste management industry.
This marks the second batch of Lidbot’s smart sensors. It is five times larger than the previous one, and it can be used in the waste industry to evaluate the size of recycle bin and the level of waste.
Libdot, which solely depend on the IOTA Tangle, revealed the information on its official Twitter handle. The company noted that the new collection of sensors will be produced in quantities higher than the ones produced during the first set. 250 more units of the sensors would distributed around the world.
The last batch of the sensors were sold for $100 with one-year Lidbot’s data analysis free subscription.
In its broadcast on Twitter, it also said that the Unites States might likely make use of the device. The company has however urged interested persons to pre-order the device for just $100 by filling out a form provided in the update.
Libdot has a sensor that can be used to measure waste level or recycling bin in the waste management industry. As a measuring tool in the waste management industry, Libdot is used to enhance the processing of waste management by tracking the level of the waste in container.
The sensor gives notification when the waste bin container is filled, and the message is sent a predefined contact. By measuring the the distance between the lid of the container and the bottom, converting any bin into intelligent device of the IOTA ecosystem to achieve the project becomes easy.
In the announcement, the company said the next set of Libdot IOT sensors has begun and this time, it comes in quantities five times higher than the previous set.
The Lidbot intelligent sensor requires lesser time, weight and cost since it does not make use of routers. It can be used in almost any waste bin.
IOTA technology is known for its presence in a number of sectors around the world. The waste management industry is a typical sector where the IOTA’s use case is in use for inventing innovations and proffering solution to some age-long problems.
