Intelligent Street Lighting
Smart Lighting for a Smart City
Streetlights are a vital part of every city, providing citizens and business with safety and security. But what if we could use our street lighting network in a more intelligent way rather than the simple on-off system that currently exists.
Through our Future Cities demonstrator, Glasgow is leading the way with the trial of intelligent street lighting, looking at ways to add more control and efficiency to our lighting network while harnessing the power of real time data to improve both lighting and safety throughout the city.
The introduction of intelligent lighting offers several key benefits to a city including environmental, financial, safety and security:
The Demonstrator will be tested in three locations on a "proof of concept" basis, looking to show how the city can use its streetlights to improve lighting quality, quality of life, public safety, energy and maintenance efficiency.
A Dynamic Lighting System controlled by sensors, reacting to citizens, producing the safe use of our cycle paths and open spaces, promoting Active Travel for the city.
A Modern Lighting Network, controlled and managed via the internet. Sensors that provide “Real Time” data on sound , air quality and footfall to improve our understanding of how the City works. Dynamic lighting linked to the City Operations Centre providing a safer environment for the City Centre.
Smart Lighting providing a bespoke lighting service for both residential and commercial areas. Promoting the city’s night time economy by linking lights to the City Operations Centre providing a safer environment for Glasgow’s premier entertainment hub.
