Smart Cities and Urban Infrastructure present a tough challenge for Local Authorities, Municipalities and Councils to identify the most cost-effective and sustainable paths to enabling intelligent city, town or village landscapes. The key challenge has been mainly due to the perceived widespread investment needed for technology infrastructure that can truly deliver intelligence at an urban-wide level.
Up until now, these have been too expensive for most authorities, and despite the wealth of benefits of individual ‘Smart City’ or ‘Internet of Things’ (IoT) applications, they have rarely merited the cost of deployment of the necessary wireless network.
Street lighting presents a highly efficient, commercial opportunity to achieve true Smart Urban status as they are ideal candidates for reuse as a city-, town- or village-wide sensory network:
- Found in urban environments across the globe
- Line the roads at regular intervals
- Connected to mains power
- Good height for wireless coverage
