Android terminal installed in waste collection lorries
Many boroughs in Brittany, France, are investing in the best computing technology to optimise various services such as household waste collection. Already established in the region, Mobil-Inn is equipping an increasing number of waste collection vehicles with their iSmartCollect solution. The platform chosen by Mobil-Inn to complement this software is ARBOR’s 8" IOT-800 rugged Android terminal.
The iSmartCollect software provides simplified collection management, including seasonal variations, smart control, allowing circuit modifications, and all the while reducing operating costs. iSmartCollect achieves this through real time maps sharing, comprehensive human and material resource management, and even enables real time route modification.
Suitable for in-vehicle applications, the 8” IOT-800 terminal offers GPS navigation for geolocation and driver guidance, as well as a SIM card reader for communication with the collection centre. Furthermore, the IOT-800 has an integrated NFC reader which allows employees with authorised badges access to the system/truck.
With a wide 12-24VDC power input, CAN 2.0b / OBD-II support, 2 x USB, RS-232/422/485 and DIO 4 x 3.3V GPIO the IOT-800 is a suitable HMI for a wide variety of in-vehicle applications.
The features of the IOT-800 terminal has led to a long-term partnership between Mobil-Inn and our distributor 6TA, with the intention of equipping all major waste collection companies in the French territory with ARBOR Technology.
