This research aimed at exploring the possibilities of technology involvement in household waste management facilities in existing high-rise residential buildings. This includes feasibility study for introducing specifically designed waste disposal/collection utilities operating as a network in which, all information related to disposed items are tracked, stored, and shared between resource management agencies and related authorities.
A virtual prototype was developed in this study. The prototype was used to conduct a user acceptance test target Sunway Property High-Rise Residential Buildings. With more than 96% positive response, this project is opening a new window to the next-gen household waste management facilities in High-rise buildings.
This research project was funded by Sunway University (research grant: INTS-2017- SOA-CRCDM- 03). For more details please contact the project principal investigator, Human Esmaeili.
