Modern street lighting which is connected with the internet, sensors and cameras will play a key role as a major lifeline of existing and future smart cities. It will offer a range of features that will allow the cities to become symbiotic organisms in which individual systems work in concert in order to make life easier for both citizens and city authorities. Read on to find out more about this and learn where you can meet the professionals working with these systems.
- Smart street lighting can help the cities reduce their utility costs. According to some estimates, just installing LED bulbs can reduce energy consumption levels for street lighting by almost 50 percent. In addition, LED bulbs allow cities to adjust the color, intensity and angle of street lighting.
- Maintenance costs can be additionally reduced with smart street lighting because faults are detected automatically. Smart lighting can reduce costs, energy and time required to locate and repair non-functional sources of light, thus saving additional energy and maintenance costs for cities as well as allowing for more advanced operational efficiency through the remote control functions.
- Smart lighting also helps security system deployments. Video surveillance cameras can be placed on smart light posts to keep an eye on public areas and take recordings of incidents. In addition, these posts can be homes to traffic and ambient parameter sensors which can collect data on road conditions, humidity, temperature and air quality.
