Vehicle Technology & On-board Weighing Overview Business Drivers Success Stories

More efficiency and higher revenues

Thanks to our AMCS vehicle technology, the next generation of fully calibrated, real-time and, robust bin management is here. Designed by our highly skilled team of engineers, on-board weighing, bin identification, and waste collection have never been easier. To date, this technology has registered over 5 million bins. And is fitted on over 5,000 vehicles across local authorities and industrial and commercial waste haulers.

You can profit from this smart, end-to-end solution. Even if you obtain our hardware without the use of our software. However, with our in-cab mobile app and on-board computer, you will gain more profit. In short, integrating our systems will result in a significant optimization of revenues.

Best in class vehicle technology improves bin and container management

As our customers will tell you, real-time route and bin data and mobile devices dramatically simplify tracking trucks, identifying collections, and monitoring collection progress.

RFID technology

RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) improves the validating, monitoring and optimizing of waste collections. With RFID you can:

ISO9001 and ISO14001

Since AMCS was formed in 2004 the core value of quality and process control has been central to the development of the company. As a company that understood that international growth was a key factor for the company’s success, the adoption of the ISO standards gave the international market a clear indicator of the company’s ambitions and commitment to process management and quality.

Gaining ISO9001 was an early achievement for the company and since then AMCS has built upon this certification standard and is now the holder of both ISO9001 and ISO14001. As a provider of weighing and identification solutions, AMCS used its background in quality and process management to attain and receive MID approval for its current and previous weighing solutions. AMCS was one of the first companies in the weighing and RFID market that were granted permission to self-certify its weighing systems at the time of installation and has since been granted permission to verify these systems in the field in UK & Irish markets. This is mainly down to the controlled processes that are currently in place in AMCS.

The Scope of the ISO 14001:2015 Management System includes:

“Design, development, and deployment of software solutions and weighing systems incorporating mobile computing and communication hardware and software for waste management industry in Ireland”

AMCS Vehicle Data Hub

The vehicle data hub is a complete on-vehicle solution. As part of the refuse collection process, it reads RFID tags and collects vehicle data. It consists of a single unit with integrated GPRS, GPS, and Wi-Fi. As well as RFID reading, it handles I/O signals and CAN-bus data.

This modular system is available in a variety of configurations. The RFID unit provides GPS tracking with GPRS communication. With RFID reading modules that suit each customer's application.

On-board Weighing

To control costs and increase profitability, the AMCS weighing and identification system enables automated capture of weight and identification data during collection.

Identification of containers can be achieved using either RFID or GPS technologies. These ensure all data is transferred in real-time to the office. The collection of containers can be blocked with the integrated stop listing feature. Typically, in the event of unpaid or overweight containers.

The cloud isn’t just vital for your business continuity, it is more sustainable too

The Cloud has helped many recycling and waste management businesses ride out the Covid storm by enabling remote working during the pandemic. These companies could continue to provide their services to municipal and commercial customers because customer service representatives, planners, and other office members were able to work from home.
