As global Smart Cities flourish, we continue to transform one of the least efficient core services – public waste collection. Recently selected as a top smart city application, Bigbelly sees growing momentum and desire to use our data-driven technology to shape the cities of tomorrow.

On Thursday, May 28 at 11:45, Kevin Menice, vice president engineering, will explore ways in which our smart waste and recycling system expands well beyond waste collection.

Each unit, seen by some as street furniture that occupies already allocated space for waste management, is in and of itself, a self-contained power plant to which one can attach applications and appliances that measure foot traffic, air quality, etc. Its connectivity can be expanded to offer free public Wi-Fi. Think urban development, public safety, and broad communication.

Kevin is responsible for the engineering initiatives at Bigbelly and further developing the software-based technology solution. He has over thirty years of senior engineering management experience leading the development of mobile technologies, speech recognition platforms, and web-based applications for the consumer and enterprise markets. Before joining Bigbelly, Kevin led the core and embedded engineering initiatives at OpenMobile, a company focused on Android compatibility. Prior to that, Kevin lead the Nuance development team on the creation of a back-end transcription service and previously led the implementation of Orange Communication’s speech strategy, successfully deploying many speech services into Orange’s international networks.Kevin received his BS degree in electrical engineering with distinction from Worcester Polytechnic Institute.

We hope that you can join us for Kevin's talk and the rest of the IoT Summit! Follow along on Twitter at #reworkIOT before, during, and after the event. Get event details, here: https://www.re-work.co/events/iot-boston
