Widget Brain and Ecube Labs sign partnership agreement

2016/11/30

Widget Brain and Ecube Labs announce today their partnership to make cities worldwide smarter, cleaner and more sustainable. Ecube Labs is a leading provider of smart waste management solutions. Their smart bins and sensors are helping municipalities to collect waste-related data to optimize waste collection operations. Widget Brain develops innovative algorithms to optimize operational processes. Widget Brain and Ecube Labs are collaborating to use this data in order to help cities increase recycling rates, reduce collection costs and prevent bin overflow.

Widget Brain

With waste generation rapidly increasing across major cities worldwide, more and more municipalities are investing in smart waste management solutions to cope with rising demands of public service while maintaining fiscal discipline. With this partnership with Widget Brain, Ecube Labs can deliver greater value from waste-related data, resulting in higher demonstrable waste management savings and cleaner public areas for cities.

Roger Kim, COO, Ecube Labs

The data flow from these bins will be used to help municipalities to create an intelligent and dynamic operation to keep the streets clean. Together with Ecube Labs, we are implementing advanced forecasting algorithms to detect patterns in behaviour. E.G., when it is raining, bins in pedestrian areas are filling up less fast.
