An ongoing research pilot at the University of Akron is boosting the resiliency the electrical grid in surrounding Akron, Ohio, and other nearby communities through an unusual source — data-collecting garbage trucks. J. Alexis De Abreu-Garcia, an electrical and computer engineering professor and lead researcher on the project, told StateScoop the project involves internet-connected sensors to the top of garbage trucks to collect radio frequency data from telephone poles as sanitation workers drive their weekly routes. The sensors are capable of detecting emissions coming from deteriorating pieces of electrical equipment, giving Akron and other participating cities a better picture of when it needs to be replaced.
