When lighting devices appear in all areas of life, it shows an even more important role in optimizing resources to convert to a smart city, improving the quality of life for urban residents. town. The conference “urban lighting solutions 2022” will be sponsored by the creative media channel ledtvportal.info.
Smart city – inevitable development trend
A smart city is understood as a city that deploys innovative and advanced technologies in providing public services, making good use of databases to build a prosperous, sustainable and livable city. than.
Over the past decade, the concept of “smart city” has become a mainstream development trend of many countries to address the challenge of population growth in urban areas.
In European countries, the US, and Canada, the urban population accounts for about 80% of the total population. In Vietnam, every year more than 1 million people migrate to big cities to study and work. The rapid increase of urban population leads to the problem of ensuring infrastructure and people’s quality of life.
In that context, technological initiatives applied in smart cities allow people to easily access and use public services such as electricity and water supply, transportation, health care, etc. At the same time, applying science Technology also improves the social and environmental management efficiency of city officials.
Therefore, urban development trends based on scientific and technical progress such as smart cities are increasingly welcome. If a smartphone (smartphone) can bring about a global revolution in just 15 years, imagine what a “smart city” can do more than that.
Smart lighting “guides” the smart city
In the transition to a smart city, “smart lighting” is a factor that affects all core aspects from traffic and environment to economy and life.
Smart city lighting includes street lights, sidewalks, pedestrian walkways, bridges, parks and squares.
When using a smart lighting system to control all city lighting devices, authorities can integrate with data collection software for urban management; thereby optimizing the process of monitoring, operating, receiving feedback and supporting citizens in a timely manner.
With experience in implementing Interact smart lighting systems for cities, Signify group – formerly Philips Lighting – has recognized the positive steps that smart lighting can contribute to this transition.
Specifically, an Interact system can save up to 80% of energy consumed for urban lighting; improve the efficiency of city lighting operation by 50%; Reduce the time to turn off lights due to problems to less than 1% thanks to the ability to report errors and handle problems in a timely manner.
Accordingly, urban spaces really become more livable for all citizens when smart lighting systems can reduce accidents by up to 30%, reduce crime rates by 20%, and improve safety. for traffic and pedestrians; up to 80% reduction in CO2 emissions; follow up and solve problems in time before receiving complaints from people; secure manager’s data from the risk of unauthorized access…
What does smart lighting need to meet the smart city?
Smart cities in general and smart lighting in particular must be human-centered. Applications of smart lighting not only save time and effort in urban operation, but also need to reach a higher goal: optimizing existing resources to improve the quality of life.
