From Connected Street Lights to Smart Cities

How Intelligent Street Lighting Provides a Platform for Urban Innovation

Smart street lighting is being adopted as a spearhead application for smart city initiatives around the world. The next frontier for public lighting is the increasing deployment of controls technology and a transition to citywide platforms for smart city applications. Intelligent controls can reduce the energy consumption of street lighting and additional benefits come from reduced maintenance costs. However, even greater value comes from integrating street lighting with other intelligent systems, including traffic monitoring, security cameras, environmental sensors, and digital signage.

Eric Woods, research director at Navigant Research, moderates a discussion with Troy Harms, vice president of Infrastructure Sales, and Terry Utterback, vice president, Product Market – Outdoor Controls, from Acuity Brands and Dan Evans, director of Product Management at Itron, on how cities can reap the benefits of a platform-based approach to smart street lighting. The panelists explore how intelligent street lighting can help reduce energy costs, improve public services, and create a connected city. They also look at how some cities are overcoming the financial and organizational barriers to adoption.
