Rugged in-vehicle computers with built-in telematics from Mobexx are powering Waste Collector from Bartec Systems. This efficiency-boosting system is used by local authorities throughout the UK to provide a direct real-time link between waste collection / street scene crews and their offices via the in-cab Mentor Ranger PC.
The Mentor Ranger provides the live wireless connection between the vehicle and the back-office system and eradicates paperwork and makes mobile phones and radios redundant. The computer also provides an allin- one system for real-time vehicle tracking and navigation, data capture and voice communications.
The system enables each waste collection operation to be live monitored by the office and it allows crews to relay issues such as damaged or missing bins back to the depot or call centre at a touch of a button. This information can then be used to help customer services staff deal with queries from the public as it instantly updates customer records as to why their bin may have been taken or a collection missed.
The system provides a comprehensive set of visual tools for real-time planning, maintaining and analysing collection rounds and routes. The system can be used for single-vehicle rounds, zonal collections or one-off collections.
