The Expo Park Automatic Waste Collection System (AWCS) spent its first 25 years with
distinction, fulfilling the initial objectives – safety, efficiency, robustness and operability. The leap into the future forces us to face new challenges that, from now on, society puts on the table, as well as the rest of the public services.
Prepare the mechanical infrastructure to face the next 25 years. Conform to the requirements of safety standards and conform to the strength of materials. Incorporation of Artificial Intelligence that will enable maximum efficiency in the collection process according to the current parameters. Optimisation of consumption derived from collection according to actual needs.
Improvements for users
To improve waste management services, user identification, individual aperture sensors and volume or weight counters are essential. Gathering and analysing data on waste will enable us to offer users comprehensive information about the service they can receive. This information can be accessed through websites or mobile applications. Using non-contact opening systems and information screens at the inlets on the street can also help improve the overall waste management efficiency. Additionally, incorporating new collection fractions can further enhance the waste management process.
