It is understood that in order to match the various lighting management and maintenance needs in the main urban area of Chengdu, the Chengdu Lighting Internet of Things Big Data Center came into being. The platform can actively and accurately identify street lamp failure types, equipment identification, GIS geographic location, and other information. After receiving the fault information, the platform will classify the algorithm according to the road section, safety hazard, and fault category, dispatch it to the front-line maintenance personnel in the form of a work order, and collect and archive maintenance results to form efficient closed-loop management.
“Giving ID cards to street lamps is not just as simple as pasting signs,” said the relevant person in charge of the platform. Location and other information give each main light pole a unique identity, and through digital twins, the light poles can truly ‘live’ with us in the streets and alleys of Chengdu.”
Up to now, more than 100,000 light poles have been transformed, more than 100,000 single light controllers have been installed, and more than 800 smart monitoring boxes have been replaced, so that all light poles with certificates can be connected to the “network”.
It is an “ID card” and a “medical insurance card”, and the street lamp can also be “registered” automatically.
After taking out the mobile phone to scan the QR code on the “ID card” of the street lamp, you can enter the “diagnosis” page of the lamp post – Chengdu Street Lamp Repair WeChat applet, which records basic information such as the number of the lamp post and the road where it is located.
“Citizens encounter street lamp failures in their lives, and can locate the faulty light pole by scanning the code. If the QR code cannot be scanned due to contamination or missing, they can also locate and report the fault through the small maintenance program. Compared with the traditional telephone fault reporting and repair applets can help us locate the fault point more accurately and quickly.” said the staff of Chengdu Lighting Internet of Things Big Data Center.
The staff member said that the front-line lighting operation and maintenance personnel are like “doctors” who specialize in the field of urban lighting. Every day they will carry out systematic inspections according to the plan, and the lighting problems they find and solve will also form a part of the city. Lighting “medical records”, according to the characteristics of these diseases, the lighting Internet of Things big data center will continue to optimize the daily inspection plan, forming a closed loop of inspection “diagnosis and treatment”.
The light pole transformation work completed before is also particularly important at this time. A variety of intelligent diagnosis and treatment equipment, including single-light controllers, intelligent monitoring boxes, and water-logging monitoring sensors, have been transformed and constructed to replace manual inspections. The networked big data center alarms, and generates a “registration list” according to the pre-configured alarm algorithm or through manual assignment, and automatically dispatches the front-line personnel to go for maintenance. When the equipment maintenance is completed, the system alarm recovers, forming a closed loop of intelligent perception and fault reporting.
