Abstract: The target of this project is to monitor the volume and the carbon dioxide (CO2) level of urban waste stored in a recycling container. Nowadays, environmental problems are known by everyone, so that is the reason of so many projects to reduce air pollution, among others, are being made. Monitoring of a recycling container allows to know the state it is and, therefore, it is possible to assess and decide, in an objective way, whether or not it should be collected during the route of the recycling trucks. Thanks of it, it is possible to optimize the collection routes, since thus, empty containers are not collected with the consequent waste of fuel and time. To know the fill level of a container, ultrasonic sensors are used, whose operating principle is through ultrasonic waves. These waves are sent and recieved by the sensor itself, calculating the distance by transmission-reception time. On the other hand, carbon dioxide (CO2) level is detected by electrochemical sensors, in which its internal resistance varies depending on the gas concentration level. Finally, database is used in order to store the data acquired in every container. Later, this data is processed by an application, the objective of which is to generate a list of the containers that must be included in the collection route.
