Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


The creation of circular economies calls for automated processes of handling goods and natural resources, including waste. Accurate knowledge about disposed waste types facilitates their smart processing and maximises the reuse potential. This requires components such as precise sensing, an appropriate architecture to gather sensed data and gain insights with low latency, and brokering tools to connect waste collectors with processors and collection points. This paper describes a smart waste detection prototype that has been designed and assembled to investigate the automated processes with those components. Its design is centered around a continuum computing architecture to align energy-efficient edge sensing with the shared aim of circular economies to reduce the ecological footprint.
