How the IoT Can Reduce Waste

Living Green Technology

In particular, the Pew Research Center Internet Project indicates that the IoT will improve the efficiency of waste reduction. So how exactly can the IoT reduce waste? We used to define waste as a by-product and inevitable component of industrialization. This is where the IoT comes in. The IoT allows people to organize daily activities in a way that reduces excess. For example, wasting energy often happens because of human neglect.
