- Smart Toilets System
The smart public toilet system is mainly composed of three parts: data acquisition, data transmission, server application. Combining sensor technology, edge computing, wireless communication transmission, big data, cloud computing and other technologies, enabling the traditional toilet smarter and easier to manage.
- Sensors and controllers
The onsite sensors can collect different types of data, includes below sensors or more.
- Edge gateway
Bivocom TG462 has rich interfaces, such as RS232, RS485, relay, digital input, analog input, ethernet ports, 4G, WIFI, GPS, etc., which allows different types of sensors and devices connected to it, with capacity of edge computing technology, it can easily and fast transfer the data to remote cloud server.
- Smart Toilet Management Platform
The platform enables administrator of public toilets to monitor the status of all public toilets anywhere and anytime, which helps to improve the quality of city management.
