DISTROMEL offers since 1999 advanced technological solutions in the field of systems engineering for the control and management of urban services. This experience makes to this company a benchmark in the ICT sector in urban services on the national scene and one of the creators of vertical platforms for Smart Cities in Spain in the sector of the technification of urban services.

DISTROMEL designs, produces, implements and performs maintenance on all its products and has R&D departments in mechanics, electronics and computing. This complete development of the product endows the company with agility and efficiency in customer service, evolving into a complete and specific product for the management and visualization of the evolution of the cleaning brigades, the collection of solid waste and the correct maintenance of the public space and its equipment. Thus, DISTROMEL has managed to develop the complete solution aimed at the management, control and optimization of urban services through the implementation of advanced technologies and always within the framework of sustainability. To do this, it has different technical departments such as R + D + i laboratories (electronics, computing and mechanics), mechanical workshop (machining and welding centers), electronic production, computer support, logistics center and its own technical service.

Control systems for urban services


Distromel has a comprehensive system for the modernization of urban services. This solution was born with the objective of unifying all the processes of the urban environment that are capable of management, control and optimization through the information obtained by the devices installed in the vehicles.


SiGEUS platform


The siGEUS platform combines management software, mobile applications, a data processing center and all electronic devices (Hardware) installed in vehicles and urban furniture. Thanks to carrying out the entire design, development and production process, together with experience and the latest and new developments, this platform meets the demands of companies and public institutions that manage urban services in municipalities, associations and regions.
With the Distromel software, it is intended to absorb the entire cycle of urban space management (MSW, street cleaning, personnel and machinery management, location of fleets, etc.) in a single system allowing.
– Inventory of fixed assets.
– Management of incidents.
– Definition and optimization of routes.
– Analysis of different indicators to save costs and care for the environment.
Based on our products we can obtain indicators that will help us save costs and analyze the service performed.
The siGEUS software platform offers maximum power to extract maximum performance from the system. It integrates all the processes for an optimal management of the urban space, from the management of the container park, the wastepaper basket park, vehicle fleets, collection routes, analysis of this data or even the planning and control of services, thus constituting a valuable tool of urban space management.


In addition, it allows to visualize, on a powerful cartographic engine, all the evolutions and associated data of the DISTROMEL electronic devices, one of its main characteristics being its modular design together with the ability to integrate the entire system. Its visual interface is characterized by being highly configurable, light and with an attractive visual design, which facilitates interaction with the application by the end user.


The systems designed, produced and installed by Distromel provide an exhaustive control of urban services allowing their improvement and optimization. For this Distromel has designed over 20 years different systems in order to serve the market according to existing needs. Due to Distromel’s experience and R&D department, all these systems can be installed on all types and brands of collectors on the market. Some systems are:


  • GPS / GPRS location system BFC-Lite: location and geo-position device for fleet control designed to obtain real-time information. These systems are used for any type of vehicle used in the management of urban services such as collectors, sweepers or vans. Street cleaning vehicles can incorporate an activity signal to find out, for example, when the sweepers are activated.
  • RFID container identification system: these systems allow monitoring of all waste collection data such as the collection site, date and time, and inventory of the entire container park.
  • Container weighing system: with weighing systems it will be possible to know the net weight of the waste collected by zones, areas or municipalities. In this way, data can be obtained that will allow, among others, to analyze the behavior of citizens regarding recycling by fraction and by area. Different types of systems that will allow coupling to any type and brand of elevator.
  • Volumetric container filling sensors: These electronic devices for the control of container filling incorporate digital technologies for sending data via wireless with the aim of optimizing service by reducing collection frequencies as it allows us to know the percentage of filling in the moment you want, such as before collecting.
  • Urban Services Management App: through the Android App it is possible to manage containers, wastebaskets, incidents, fleets and collections of industrial containers. This App allows to control from a Smartphone or Tablet the entire cycle of space management through the location of work teams as well as to manage urban elements such as maintenance of containers or litter bins (washed, high, low) or incidents in the same elements.
  • Can Bus connection: through the FMS (Fleet Management System) interface it is possible to obtain the Can Bus data such as the fuel used, hours, revolutions, torques and temperatures of the engine,% pedal operated (brake and acceleration), relative times of driving.
  • Buttons for entering information: the introduction of information by operators such as the percentage of filling that is displayed in the collection or an incident found in the container provides statistical data that will show indicators to be taken into account by service companies and public administrations.
