Smart and Connected Streetlights

Deploying advanced technology for energy efficiency and safety

With smart and connected streetlights, Urbanova is defining how to develop and design a living laboratory as well as harnessing data to gain insights, empower people and solve urban challenges in new ways. The Smart and Connected Streetlights Pilot will help increase energy efficiency and public safety while also assessing the role of air quality in healthy cities.

The pilot enables the intelligent management and control of the streetlights using Itron’s OpenWay Riva™ Internet of Things (IoT) solution. The smart, connected sensor network provides the foundation for the streetlight pilot and future applications. The new generation streetlights not only save energy compared to predecessors, but they are also remotely controllable so that lighting conditions can be adjusted and optimized to improve public safety or urban ambiance.

The pilot also features a human-scale urban air quality R&D component, measuring the quality of the air and other environmental factors to assess air quality’s role in a healthy city. The streetlights are capturing other data, including ambient temperature, ambient light, peak noise level, motion detection and pole orientation.
