APPLICATIONS


  • Waste Recycling Facilities

It is the services that are made within the scope of the studies for recovering the economies by separating the wastes collected separately at the source. Examples are electronic waste recycling systems and plastic waste recycling plants.

  • Smart Waste Containers and Carrying Systems

It is the container and carrier system service aiming to remove the inefficiency in the waste management processes, to minimize the damage done to the environment and to provide a more regular service.

  • Smart Irrigation

With the use of sensors, the values ​​such as temperature, humidity, pressure, soil salinity, pH, soil salinity, wind speed / direction, rain intensity are continuously measured and provided with necessary and adequate watering and monitoring systems. İzmir Şirinyer Hippodrome Irrigation application is an example of smart watering.

  • Smart Parking Management and Payment Solutions

It is a system that offers various ticketing solutions and automatic payment terminals for efficient parking operation in non-traffic areas.   Mongolia Trade Building car park is an example where these systems are applied.

  • Electric Vehicle Charging Infrastructure

Smart charging systems that can direct electric vehicles to charging demand are systems that will prevent severe damage to the existing electrical infrastructure by preventing the increase in loads that can occur during times when energy demand is high, especially in regions where vehicle charging is intensive.   The free charging stations for electric vehicles in Izmir are an example of an electric vehicle charging infrastructure.

CHALLENGES


  • High unit prices of technological products to be used
  • Strong planning of seasonal changes with material volume, type and quantity during operation
  • In terms of logistics, container and truck type identification,route planning, fuel usage and scheduling difficulties
  • Odor problem incontainers
  • High Investment costs
  • Competition of competing systems, use of different network standards
  • Inadequacy of regulations
  • Faster development of technology than regulation
  • Costs are long-term
  • Lack of a common interoperability approach
  • Pressure on the water system, such as population growth, increased water pollution, increased seller, longer droughts
  • Aging infrastructure concerns
