Testing asphalt made from wood waste (mixed with lignin) on the territory of Mustamäe State High School

A smart buoy, allows you to measure wave height (with an accuracy of 1 cm), wave direction, wave period and other important wave parameters in the sea, ocean and inland water bodies. The aim of the project is to provide city residents, tourists and users of the Tallinn sea area in general with real-time wave information from Tallinn's ports (i.e. wave conditions in the immediate vicinity of the ports

Ibiot's solution envisages the installation of sensors in waste containers, which would then allow the waste transport operator to change the emptying of the containers based on need. The sensor was installed in the waste water tank of Mustamäe Park, 100 bus stop trash cans in the Mustamäe district will be digitized in August. Pilots also with the Tallinn Waste Center (collecting big data from special types of waste containers) and with Tehnopol and Tallinn Waste Recycling Center (digitalization of waste transport)
