Smart Street Lighting for Smart Cities

Matt Ball on June 26, 2014 - in Announcement, Maintenance, Smart Cities

Many cities have begun replacing their high-pressure sodium street lights with LEDs.  While the motivation for these replacements typically focuses on cost and energy savings from improved efficiency and longer lamp lifetimes, a growing number of cities are discovering the benefits of incorporating new sensors and networked control into their new lights.  Networked street lights provide an ideal platform for a range of innovative smart city applications.  With both power and communications available on poles distributed throughout a city, a range of sensors, cameras, and other devices can be deployed to provide information on traffic, parking, air quality, security, and more, offering benefits to city residents and potential revenue generating opportunities to city managers.

Featuring research director Eric Woods and senior research analyst Jesse Foote, along with Echelon director of sales Mark Carter and Martin Mercier, outdoor professional luminaire control category manager for Philips Lighting, this webinar will examine the adoption of smart street lighting in combination with smart city applications, the applications that various vendors are developing to maximize the potential benefits, and the market opportunity this segment presents.
