A new study shows the benefits that smart lighting and wireless sensors could bring to Smart Cities.
For example, a smart lighting network has been installed in the United Kingdom. This system is composed of 400 LED lights connected to servers that register changes in the levels of sunlight in order to adjust brightness from midnight until sunrise.
The provider of the system stated that it helps reduce the city’s energy consumption by 40 percent while also reducing maintenance costs and light pollution.
The city plans to replace more than 100,000 traditional streetlights with LED systems.
