The great advantage of smart street lights is to produce the right light levels at the right moment. Timed dimming programs work well on areas where traffic is predictable, like sleepy suburban estates. Timed programs don’t work for highways where traffic is less predictable. This webinar looks into traffic adaptive street lighting, how it can help to reduce energy consumption by up to 30% for roads and highways. And how the traffic data can also provide insights to local authorities beyond the lighting operation.
In this webinar recording, Richard Webster, from Suffolk County Council, tells how their network was first implemented in 2011 and also the benefits they got and also about the challenges that they faced. Richard will be joined by Alex Davies, lead analyst at IoT and wireless technology specialists Rethink Technology. Alex will talk about data handling and the advantages this will bring local authorities, as well as some of the risks. Keith Day from Telensa will give us the latest on smart technology application and the global market.
