Evaluation

By implementing IoT in portable toilets, the company has offered a stress-free system that not only tells users which units are unoccupied, but also gives the remote maintenance company updated information on the levels of water and septic tank. Designed specifically for porta potties, it offers convenience and an indispensable service in an area where the significance is often overlooked. It is developed with the use at large-scale events such as fireworks and music festivals in mind, but will sure become extremely useful at construction sites and in the event of emergency such as natural disasters. All the judges gave high appraisal for offering a lightly regarded but important service.
