Motivity Labs’ Smart City Waste Management System, a GPS-enabled IoT solution, will provide real-time information on waste collection throughout Hyderabad.
July 11, 2017, Hyderabad, India – At the inaugural National Waste Management Summit held at the Taj Krishna hotel in Hyderabad on June 28th; 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 collections. The system will track all activity 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 MotivityLabs said “It is an honor 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 app was built with a vision to improve the productivity of GHMC employees and increase efficacy of solid waste management. Now other cities across India can learn and benefit from this effort.”
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 Hyderabad. Motivity Labs’ experience with IoT based solutions developed this new system to help the GHMC in their goal of improving productivity of sanitation workers.
“We are very excited with the success in our Smart Cities lab to bring this system online,” said Prabhakar Reddy, CEO of Motivity Labs. “With the move to Smart Cities, Motivity Labs is prepared with tools such as these to help cities across the globe to target specific urban issues to increase efficiency, transparency, and quality of life.”
