Abstract
Protection of the environment is currently a high profile concern and this is resulting in more effective recycling and reuse of materials. This paper outlines a research project for developing and using a ‘Technology Hub’ framework combining Computational Intelligence – Rule-based Reasoning technology and Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) technology in the waste management sector. This framework has been developed using a case study based on a local waste recycling company. The project aims to help recycling companies in tracking, scheduling and intelligently handling incidents of waste movement in order to prevent fly-tipping and improve their management efficiency. Finally, the development procedure for a smart plasterboard waste management system is outlined, which includes a detailed discussion concerning the Rule-based Reasoning system design. This application provides a solution that a company can use to monitor the fleet/waste status and also generate decision support automatically in real time.
