The netBin bin network in Milton Keynes has become the first to start sending encrypted big data to the MK data hub.
This is a massive step in the right direction for the Milton Keynes smart city project. Sending secure encrypted big data to the MK data hub along with data from many other smart city solutions will give crucial insights into the way Milton Keynes behaves as city.
FarSite’s netBin solution monitors fill level, tilt angle and temperature of the waste bins enabling reductions in heavy lorry road traffic, pollution, congestion and unsightly overflowing bins.
Milton Keynes Smart City Project
The consortium of leading technology companies, UK Technology Catapults, Milton Keynes Council and the Open University have signed a Memorandum of Understanding to build a city-wide, open access, demonstration network for Machine to Machine (M2M) communications and the Internet of Things (IoT).
