Los Angeles deployed road intelligent lighting system
Los Angeles lighting infrastructure in the forefront of the scale, but also one of the city's most important asset. This reliable, intelligent interconnected lighting system covers all types of public places for people's lives, work, travel, shopping, dining and social networking. "Said Ed Ebrahimian, director of the Los Angeles Streetlight Administration." If every street can collect the surrounding environmental data and make full use of it, the entire streetlight network will provide the people with richer value. "
"Intelligent interconnection lighting system is constantly upgrading, is fundamentally change the way the city operates. Street lights are becoming an important information node, it can collect, share data, the use of analytical results to promote the development of intelligent city," Philips Lighting Professional System Global Industry manager Susanne Seitinger said. "As a pioneer in the wisdom of the city, Los Angeles City is committed to promoting citizen, community and city interaction through technological innovation."
In 2015, the Los Angeles Street Light Administration began deploying the Philips CityTouch Smart Connected Road Lighting Management System. The system uses existing mobile networks and cloud technology to monitor and control the running of street lamps and analyze the running energy consumption of each set of lights. The new pilot project will be expanded on this basis, incorporating more sensors, testing new applications, and making urban infrastructure investments more effective.
The pilot project will be implemented in 2016 to evaluate new sensor-based applications, including:
Environmental noise monitoring
By adding new noise sensor modules to the Philips CityTouch street lights, continuous noise data is collected to help city management and planning teams more easily monitor, aggregate and visualize the ambient volume in different areas. The data collected will be used to monitor noise pollution, ensure rapid response to noise complaints, and ultimately improve the city's long-term planning decisions.
"We do not know much about the way in which public noise is spread, and Dietmar Offenhuber, an assistant professor at Northeastern University in the United States, says that" installing a sound sensor on a streetlight will break through existing limitations and interpret the city Through large data analysis, we can understand the way in which cities and sound scenes interact with each other.
Grid performance monitoring
Philips CityTouch street lights help a wide range of continuous access to key grid operating parameters to help public lighting management to assess the quality of power supply. At the same time, through these public data, grid managers can quickly learn of power outages, speed up the recovery process, reduced the residents and business inconvenience.
Improve street lamp maintenance
The Smart Connected Lighting System provides the Los Angeles Street Light Administration with data on lamp operation, improved maintenance plans and cost savings. In the future, it can be combined with grid operation information to achieve more advanced maintenance mode.
