Simple start-up and low operating costs with READy
The genius of the garbage truck solution is its simplicity. In READy, Henning Bøgh Christiansen sets up specific groupings based on the waste collection routes, and the island's four garbage trucks then get a tablet or smartphone as well as a converter. The trucks drive around in pairs for one week at a time collecting waste while they simultaneously – and with no extra effort – read the water meters.
READy does not require any large investments and getting started is both quick and easy. As the remote reading is done automatically, it is not necessary to train the drivers on how to collect the data. The garbage trucks simply go about their normal routine, all the while the technology on board is reading all the meters it can along the way.
Every two months, the supply company then reads the remaining meters so that they have a complete reading of all their meters. Previously, meter reading was done just once a year.
