IoT Street Lighting NodesLoRa based intelligent street lighting nodes

Street lighting is one of the largest energy expenses for a city, as 40% of the energy budget of a city is attributable to street lighting. Civil authorities and city planners have started realizing that shifting to smart LED street lighting is the need of the hour. An intelligent street lighting system can cut municipal street lighting costs by as much as 50% – 70%. Moreover, it contributes to a reduction in environmental impact. An intelligent street lighting system adjusts light output based on usage and occupancy, i.e., automating classification of pedestrian versus cyclist, versus automotive. An intelligent street light management proposes the installation of the wireless-based system to remotely track and control the actual energy consumption of the street lights and take appropriate energy consumption reduction measures through power conditioning and control.
