Outdoor Lighting as infrastructure

Outdoor lighting infrastructure – shortcut to Smart City

If you want to obtain economic advantages and make optimum use of existing resources, lamppost are the perfect and obvious place to start implementation of the Smart City.

The street lights are connected to the power supply and have the advantage of height, allowing the installation of sensors high above cars and pedestrians. They are widely installed across most cities and easily collects all the necessary observations, which turn your vision of Smart City into reality.

But how does it work?

Exlumi Consulting has developed a model, that builds on the use of the citys lighting infrastructure to establish the Smart City.

Phase 1: Observations/sensors

Phase 2: Communication

Phase 3: Big databases

Phase 4: Intelligence layer

Phase 5: Use-case/application layer





“The lighting installation in the urban space is the most important piece of infrastructure in realising the smart city”
