There is an on-going rush to substitute all light bulbs with LED elements due to environmental and energy savings reasons. By combining LED technology with communication and sensing capabilities, in the same lighting infrastructure, city authorities not only drastically reduce energy consumption and overall city OpEx, but also generate revenues to fund the transformation & modernization of critical city infrastructure. At the same time, they provide smart services to their citizens such as Internet Access, Smart Parking, Physical Security, Waste Management and Location-based Content Push.
Autonomous and continuous monitoring of noise levels in the city 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, based on sensor measurements. Real-time information is provided on the monitored areas and alerts are generated when threshold noise limits are exceeded or specific noise patterns are identified.
Bluetooth-equipped light poles can serve as emergency hubs: by pressing a personal Bluetooth Panic Button when a citizen is threatened, the most approximate light switches to full brightness, while alert messages are dispatched to the operator, triggering further security actions.
Advanced device-counting functionality, supported by Ultra Sonic sensor verification, can detect and count, in real-time, cars and humans passing by. Congestion conditions can be sensed or predicted and analytics-driven corrective actions can be triggered. Integration with related external traffic data sources provides for increased accuracy of the system, further ensuring the traffic conditions of the City.
Strategically placed ultrasonic sensors, located in selected lighting poles, detect the presence of cars parked in the monitored Smart City areas in real-time. A centralized GIS environment visualizes both occupied and free parking slots, in order to inform citizens for available parking spaces, as well as authorities for potential parking violations.
Smart Waste Management sensors are placed in every waste bin to alert city authorities to collect and disseminate everyday wastes. As a result, littering during transfer to the Recycling Units is prevented, while speedy transportation of the waste is allowed, minimizing disruption of the City traffic conditions during peak hours.
