Binscope was commissioned by the department ‘Schoon & Heel’ from the Town of Amsterdam and assigned by ‘HvA’.

We had the task to clearly visualize the data from the garbage bins in the city.

Our solution

We created an application for the management that displays the fullness of the garbage bins and tells when they need to be emptied.

We also developed an algorithm that predicts the individual fullness of the garbage bins, that uses old data and the amount of people in the nearby region.

We designed the interface and made a prototype which you can see here (no login required). The project was nominated for the Golden Dot Awards.
