LED lights can also be embedded in the road when the zebra crossing? Demystifying the new direction of smart cities

   A new type of LED light traffic system embedded in the road has been put into trials in London. It can detect pedestrians and other vehicles, and changes road lights and pipeline signs in real time according to road conditions to alert drivers of possible dangers. Especially when there are pedestrians or bicycles appearing in the blind spot of the driver's eyes, the road will display a red light warning.led tube light

    This new type of LED-embedded road is jointly developed by Umbrellium, a British company, and Direct Line, a car insurance company. In addition to the embedded LED pavement, this system also includes a high-definition camera to capture pedestrian and vehicle information and assist the system in making real-time feedback.;led bulb light

   The zebra crossing and road safety have always been an important and complex part of the mass transit system. However, from the beginning of the zebra crossing design in the 1940s to the highly developed traffic, the way people cross the road has not changed much. The increase in traffic accidents has made perfect zebra crossings and pedestrian transportation systems a necessary consideration for future smart city design.

    Street lights are another application of LEDs in smart city traffic systems. According to Philips' survey data, there are more than 300 million street lamps in the world, of which less than 10% use LED bulbs, and less than 1% of them can centrally control switches and monitor streetlights.

    In the smart city of the future, LED street lights will not only become more mainstream because they are more energy-efficient and more efficient, LED street light poles will also be transformed into a multi-purpose one. American Tower and Philips Lighting have jointly developed a smart streetlight that not only provides energy-saving LED lighting, but also serves as a wireless network coverage facility for telecommunications companies. It also integrates into the urban landscape and functions as a landscape lighting.led flame bulb

    In San Diego, USA, smart street lights with sensing capabilities will increase from more than 40 pilots to 3,600. The detection range will reach 160 square miles, which is equivalent to half of the entire city. This street lamp is designed by GE's Current, and cooperates with Intel, AT&T, ShotSpotter and other manufacturers to provide more applications, including monitoring air pollution, surrounding traffic conditions and parking information, and can also track gun sound sources when a shooting occurs. .led street light

    In the United Kingdom, the government cooperated with clean energy company OVO and German technology company Ubitricity to transform a small number of streetlights to provide electric vehicle charging services. In response to the UK's 2040 prohibition of sales of gasoline and diesel vehicles, the government fully implemented the policy of electric vehicles and clean energy.

    In China, with the development of NB-IoT, smart streetlights have also accelerated its popularity. Intelligent control of future urban lighting will also become mainstream. Huawei, Shanghai Sansi and other vendors all provide smart streetlight solutions that integrate sensors, security monitoring, information release, network, charging, and emergency calls.
