Streetlights are a key asset in any city as they provide a sense of safety and security to the public, especially pedestrians, and increase the quality of life by artificially extending the day. Streetlights that are smart and operate intelligently and autonomously can provide added benefits of additional lower energy consumption and lower carbon emissions. Such an asset can also provide the extra connectivity and sensor data flows required to allow algorithms centrally or locally deployed to act on relevant information to optimise asset energy usage and provide a degree of automation of operation. This article will discuss a smart street lighting system developed by Autonomous-IoT, a UK-based SME.
