The city's sanitation department engages cleaning vehicles routinely, irrespective if the street was dirty or not. They manage the means and not the results, resulting in high cleaning costs and environmental footprint. Thanks to our cleanliness monitoring, the city can engage cleaning only when and where necessary. The monitoring is done accurately and automatically thanks to cameras and embedded AI processing on-board city's vehicles, respecting privacy by design. Major Swiss and European cities demonstrate 20% savings in costs and environmental footprint with data driven cleaning.
