Efficient Garbage Disposal Management in Metropolitan Cities Using VANETs

Narendra Kumar G., Chandrika Swamy, and K. N. Nagadarshini
Abstract—Rapid increase in population, has led to improper waste management in metropolitan cities resulting in increased pests and spreading of diseases. An efficient method to dispose this waste has been designed with Wireless Sensor Networks (WSN) using VANETs. IEEE 802.11p has been adopted and multicast routing has been proposed to be implemented in Garbage Collecting Vehicle’s (GCV) On Board Units (OBU) for effective communication. Road Side Units (RSU) and sensors have been made use of in the response system. Filling up of multiple bins at the same time and usage of reserve GCVs has been considered. The prototype VANET based efficient garbage disposal system is induced in a metropolitan city environment and has been simulated in NS2and the results are encouraging for implementation.

Index Terms—Garbage collecting vehicle (GCV), road side unit (RSU), vehicular Ad-Hoc network (VANET), wireless access in vehicular environment (WAVE).
