Circlon | group: Your partner for the digital transformation in the waste management sector

As a leading solution provider, the Circlon | group offers solution concepts and customised digitalisation options for waste management companies

Driver devices for the digital processing of driving jobs

For a well-known waste management company with 300 trucks and 145 service vehicles in its fleet, the Circlon | group supplied 250 industrial tablets as driver devices for the digital processing of driving jobs. The tablet is based on the Android 7 Nougat operating system and, in addition to telecommunications and navigation, provides all the functions that drivers need.

Digital process control

Instead of pen and paper, the company now uses the state-of-the-art digital control system for documentation purposes to optimise processes, thereby significantly minimising the error rate. In the test phase, the company is also using GPS location trackers with integrated warning systems to track disposal containers. As a solution provider, the Circlon | group is using the Graphmaster navigation software with swarm intelligence in a pilot project. The software generates optimised route suggestions for the fleet in daily traffic, thus saving time and reducing emissions.

Monitoring the waste containers by barcode

The driver devices of waste containers are an important issue for waste management companies. For this reason, the Circlon | group has introduced the marking of containers with weather-resistant QR barcode labels for identification at a large waste management company. Around 3,000 containers at a depot can now be precisely located and their condition checked. Costs due to stolen and unrecovered containers are now a thing of the past.

Driver devices optimise processes

The delivery of driver devices for the digitalisation of driving jobs is also being tested. The acquisition of vehicle data using a standardised interface contributes to the successful completion of a driving job. Once the dispatch department has set up the route planning, the drivers of a fleet receive their jobs on the mobile driver device. They can document the activities there or start navigation to the respective destination. In this way, processes are regulated and documented in a standardised way, and costs and time resources can be saved.

Access and departure monitoring with connection to the customer system

For a recycling company, the Circlon | group has implemented a solution for the registration of the fleet and its cargo on arrival and departure. For this purpose, an arrival and departure monitoring system for trucks and containers using RFID or UHF (ultra high frequency) identification was installed at this site. The company’s own trucks passing through the company premises at the entrance and exit gates are registered in the windscreen using an RFID windscreen tag. The respective containers carried by the truck are additionally equipped with a permanently installed UHF hard tag for identification and inventory. This is achieved via installed RFID outdoor readers with additional traffic light signals indicating whether the tags have been registered. The recorded data is then forwarded to the central customer system via an interface.
