Relay Waste Management Case Study – Smart 50 Award Recipient

Smart Cities Are Here

Covid-19 has awakened a new awareness and discussion of what the city of tomorrow will be like – more bike lanes, fewer cars, better air quality, a constant search for efficiencies to facilitate that evolution, and an emphasis on environmental equity. Relay sensor technology is here today, fit invisibly in waste receptacles, measuring a range of actionable data while generating huge savings. For accurate street-level environmental sensing, for waste collection scheduling and routing, for reduced carbon emissions, let Relay technology answer tomorrow’s needs with measurable success.

Data From Every Street Corner

Identify disadvantaged neighborhoods with street level data from the facets of daily life that often go unreported. Observe trends in air quality, noise pollution, heat islands and pedestrian activity with Relay sensor technology. Determine if low-income residents or racial minorities are experiencing disproportionately harsher consequences in your city. With actionable data from every street corner,™ you can take immediate strides toward environmental equity.   

Smart Waste Case Study: The City of Pittsburgh Modernizes Their Waste Collection Process While Combating Climate Change

Using Victor Stanley Relay™ technology, Pittsburgh looked to the edge of innovation to completely modernize this crucial aspect of public works, using an approach driven by real data collected from the actual city streets. With the Relay system’s data, Pittsburgh is well positioned to lead the way on two fronts – the global, ongoing battle against climate change, and the seemingly simple task of improving the way they collect trash.
