Secoval S.r.l. has asked GisUp to develop an application for the creation of pre-established routes and GPS navigation for waste collection vehicles within the municipalities of the Mountain Community.

It was made available to technicians of Secoval S.r.l. a tool able to manage the complex system of waste collection:

  • creation of predetermined paths;
  • calendar management;
  • control of the activities with the possibility of reviewing the executed paths;
  • obtaining statistics.

This tool allows operators to load the pre-established paths that must be carried out including messaging such as one-way directions, collection on foot, collection exclusively of the right side of the carriageway, etc. On the basis of a calendar created specifically to manage vehicle traffic in a simple and productive way, vehicle drivers use a Mobile App from a tablet they supply exactly as if it were a Web Mapping tool in which the route to be performed with turns and stops is indicated.

This tool, through the use of GPS devices from which it is used, allows you to keep track of the actual route taken, average speeds and stops, thus providing Secoval S.r.l. real-time statistics in order to be used as a decision-making tool for the efficiency and effectiveness of the entire waste collection system.

The system uses only open source products based on a PostgreSQL database with PostGIS spatial extension, which allows the management of geometric data such as points and arcs. Client side has been implemented a hybrid Mobile App that can be used by Android devices. The analysis and management of client-side routing was achieved through the use of Leaflet and Turf.js, a JavaScript library for spatial analysis on the browser side.
