Light is essential. We need lighting fixtures in every environment: roads, parks, airports, bus and train stations, shopping malls, schools, hospitals, offices, industrial buildings, warehouses, etc. – basically anywhere and everywhere. Research and technology have brought us the understanding that there is more to it than just light. Nowadays we do not only think about lighting, but also how light can have positive effects on people, our safety, security and wellbeing. Lighting has changed dramatically, and LUMENIA is at the forefront of these developments by integrating new technologies that address various needs. Such technologies allow us to systematically capture and analyse big data, offering us a valuable insight needed for efficient and sustainable development.
Smart cities are nowadays a huge challenge for governments, private industry, non-governmental organizations and other stakeholders, to determine collectively how to realize a smart city vision that meets their needs and accords with their local values.
Most of the time the connection is wirelessly to a cloud-based control application via a different number of streetlight-mounted base stations and from there we have an access to all the data which sensors gave us. These include using connected street lights as a communications hub for sensors such as traffic radar, to connect new control applications such as smart parking, or integrating lighting-based analytics with other smart city systems. With implementation of Smart solutions in cities or anywhere around us, we are recovering a footprint, and also we get the opportunity to watch analysis at savvy application of big data, via connected networks and use them to improve a city’s overall performance.
