ABSTRACT: Internet of things , in basic terms is Connectivity of different devices through wireless means.Today many tasks are based on IOT. Devices are becoming smarter these days , Cities for instance are becoming intelligent by implementing IOT. Smart cities incorporate obstacle tracking, Object sensing,Network sensing and control , tracking people around them , monitoring lights etc. The main objective of IOT in cities is to keep the cities clean using various methods such as Garbage management systems and the second objective is making people more responsible. Keeping this in ming “IOT based Intelligent Garbage Bin for Smart cities” has been developed . Garbage management is one major application of IOT.
