Recently, Mumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) started project for installing GPS Vehicle Tracking System for its garbage collection to monitor the movement. The decision came ensuing the complaints of residents that garbage is not collected regularly. To monitor their vehicle movement BMC started a pilot project in 2012 in some parts of the city and now it has decided to implement across city. The project is proposed to get complete in two phase, in first phase, all private contractors garbage collection vehicles will be covered under the project then subsequently BMC owned trucks will be equipped.
“We will now expand the project to other wards. In the pilot project, we faced technical glitches and identified gaps that need to be plugged. For example, data fed into the system kept fluctuating. It was not certain if this was a manual problem or a technical glitch. Now that we have a better understanding with several trial runs, we are expanding the software to all parts of the city,” said Deputy Municipal Commissioner Prakash Patil.
With vehicle tracking system installed on collection trucks, BMC can monitor real time movement of trucks on designated route and it will ensure that collection are done regularly, time taken to reach different points of collection and time it takes to load and unload the garbage.
