IOT Based Smart Dustbin
As cleanliness is very important with the increase in population monitoring and disposal of the waste becomes an essential need. In the present era, to protect the environment is our first priority. Nowadays due to global warming, there are abrupt changes in the atmosphere. There is a sudden increase in temperature which extremely affects the animals & their habitat. In this paper, the smart bin is built on a microcontroller-based platform Arduino Uno board which is interfaced with GSM modem and Ultrasonic sensor. One ultrasonic sensor is used for the position sensing of the human for opening the lid of the dustbin and another ultrasonic sensor is used to sense the height of the garbage in the dustbin and compare it with the garbage bin depth. The system makes use of Arduino, GSM module for sending a message, servomotor to open the lid, buzzer, LED as an indicator and Solar panel of the street light. The system is powered by a 12V battery which gets charged by a solar panel. When the level of garbage crosses the set limit, the system puts on the buzzer. Once the garbage reaches the threshold level ultrasonic sensor will trigger the GSM modem which will continuously alert the cleaning staff and supervisor until the garbage in the dustbin is squashed. This system uses the solar panel of the street light as the power source which is the advantage of this project. A 12 V battery is also used in this system for the power supply which gets charged via a solar panel. In bad weather condition, the battery is used as a power backup. In our country disposing the garbage is a serious issue. Even educated people tend to throw the garbage outside the garbage tanks, this is due the presence of insufficient garbage tanks near the road sides. In the cities most of the road ends having garbage tanks, and most of the people use the garbage tanks in the rightful manner. But now the problem is when the garbage tanks over flow it smells a lot during rainy season. This issue leads to very speedy spread of diseases to the nearby places. In order to avoid this problem, the waste garbage will be sent for burning. But burning the garbage in incinerators releases highly dangerous gases, ash and dust which contributes to global warming a
