HYDERABAD, India, July 17, 2017 /PRNewswire/ --
During the inaugural ceremony of National Waste Management Summit held at the Taj Krishna hotel in Hyderabad on June 28, the Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation (GHMC) unveiled the Smart City Waste Management System which was developed in partnership with Motivity Labs.
The Smart City Waste Management System was designed to improve waste collection. The system will track all activities and provide information to a new website and mobile app. Collection bins and vehicles are tagged with RFID; the vehicles are also outfitted with GPS to track collections made along all routes across Hyderabad. With this system, GHMC will have transparency in tracking regular collections to ensure efficiency and minimize missed collections.
GHMC Minister K Taraka Rama and Mayor Bonthu Rammohan took the opportunity to introduce the new system during the inaugural National Waste Management Summit as vital in sharing best practices with other participants in attendance. GHMC Commissioner B Janardhan Reddy said, "The objective behind organizing the summit was to create a platform to share best practices used in different municipal corporations to hopefully inspire self-transformation and willingness to learn from others."
Raghu Kumar, Co-founder and Managing Director of Motivity Labs said, "It is an honour to have the opportunity to partner with GHMC to deploy our IoT based solution to improve the field efficacy of waste collection." He added, "This application was built with a vision to improve the productivity of GHMC employees and increase efficiency of solid waste management. Now other cities across India can benefit from this solution."
With the launch of the Smart City Waste Management system, the GHMC is focused on leveraging advanced technologies to help improve processes and achieve results of improving the city of Hyderabad. Motivity Labs' experience with IoT-based solutions developed this new system to help the GHMC in their goal of improving the productivity of sanitation workers.
