Intelligent Lighting Is Used In Northern Australian Cities To Reduce Energy Consumption And Cost

- Apr 08, 2019-

In recent years, the construction of "smart cities" has sprung up all over the world, aiming at building smart cities. As an important part, intelligent lighting plays an important role in intelligent city.


According to foreign media reports, the city of Darwin in northern Australia is about to adopt an intelligent street lighting system to replace nearly 10,000 lights on streets and public lighting networks with wireless connected LEDs.


These lamps will be controlled by a central management system (CMS), which is known to reduce energy and maintenance costs, and turn street lamp poles into "hubs" of smart city sensors by automatically reporting failures and improving service quality.


"Key infrastructure projects such as street and public lighting need the highest standards to ensure reliability and value for money," said Scott Waters, chief executive of Darwin. "With this system, Darwin can improve street lighting services while reducing costs, providing a safer, smarter and more effective environment for our communities."


Previously, Palmerston, Australia, has adopted an intelligent street lighting system to upgrade LED street lights.
