The City of Irving has more than 40 collection vehicles that service approximately 42,000 locations, all of which will be a part of this pilot program.
Of paramount interest for the City of Irving during this pilot program is generating data for route optimization and management for its waste, recycling, and brush vehicles, as well as collecting data and documentation on the volume of material picked up for every route.
“The RUBICONSmartCity™ platform helps cities of all sizes leverage data to make smarter decisions about waste, recycling, and city operations, leading to improvements in sustainability and quality of life that map to an overall mission to end waste,” said Michael Allegretti, Chief Public Strategy Officer at Rubicon Global.
“Using RUBICONSmartCity™, the City of Irving will be able to take the data that is pulled from its fleet and determine route optimization, vehicle location, and streets that have been serviced-feeding important data back to the City and its citizens.”
“The City of Irving continually is looking to take advantage of technology and data that helps improve efficiency, maintenance and makes the city better for our residents,” said Irving’s Solid Waste Service Director, Brenda Haney.
“We think this specific smart city solution from Rubicon Global could be a game changer for our fleet, and we look forward to exploring its impact and application throughout our system.”
