Autonomous waste collection in your company
A 30% saving on the cost of collecting your company's waste. We want to achieve this by setting up an autonomous waste collection system, tegether with VIL (Flemish Spearhead Cluster for Logistics), FTSolutions, DSP Automation, Pixelvision, Indaver and Antwerp University.
As a production or logistics company, you want to be able to focus on your main task: producing or transporting as much as possible at the best possible quality. Unfortunately, most production processes also generate a lot of waste. For instance, Flemish companies produce about 16 million tonnes of primary industrial waste per year. This waste, which is often neatly separated, ends up in various types of containers on the company floor. These containers must then be emptied (usually on a daily basis). After a brainstorm with a number of logistics members, VIL identified a need for automating this process.
