Hygiea

Hygiea is an Internet of Things Platform that improves the efficiency of waste collection by at least 30%. A total of 37 billion dollars is wasted by companies every year in the US alone. More importantly, in our interactions with Sutter Health and Stanford Healthcare, both have unanimously pointed out the dangers of untimely biohazardous waste collection causing overflowing or underutilized bins, which also hampers their customer experience. We solve this problem by deploying sensors in bins that detect fullness level and organic decomposition, and push the data wirelessly into our cloud. Then, we pass this data through our proprietary analytics algorithm that creates dispatches for janitorial workers via an app without them having to visit bins that are empty or sufficiently full. Over time, this will also be able to make bin utility and worker performance parameters available, which will help facilities to save time and
resources.
