If you are thinking about Streetlight 4.0, there is much more.
The diagnostic function, which in case of doubt signals a failure of the LED, also provides the data channel for the acquisition and evaluation of further sensor data: It is possible to see whether pedestrians, cyclists or cars are moving. And adjust the light in intensity.
It is possible to detect free parking and to report accidents. And all these events can be communicated in real time, directly or via cloud. Weather data would also be possible.
From the WLAN cuff for stocklights to the complete package with WLAN, SOS and charging station for electric vehicles are possible.
With option for more sensors, which are currently also developed as an add-on for old lamps. Smart City not by tomorrow, but already 2017.
3 High-performance solar glass Glass modules vertically around the lamppost mast ensure the self-sufficient supply via a special power bank (rechargeable battery).
The EU and the German Federal Ministry of Economics and Energy will provide comprehensive support for cities, municipalities and private investors, builders and companies.
Whether Streetlight 4.0 becomes a reality, is the responsibility of municipal administrations and the citizens who have to contribute and point to an increase in efficiency and cost reduction.
Up to 100% of the current costs can be omitted.
Some mayors have already decided and have drawn consequences to make the urban environment ripe for Streetlight 4.0
As early as 2017, smart street lighting could increasingly shape the road image.
Then still with WLAN the digital Natives to use or charging stations for e-bikes and e-cars, does not involve much more. The infrastructure stands.
For example, the 0.8 per cent of the energy costs that are spent on street lighting could result in 100 per cent satisfaction for the citizens.
But it takes courage for investment.
How a Wlan street lamp works
SOS identification: The integrated light signal shows when the emergency call system is activated from afar, where help is needed.
Self-sufficient energy supply: A need-oriented improvement of path lighting with energy-saving LED technology ensures 100% safety in remote, less frequented areas.
WLAN: With smartphones and tablets the demands on the Internet connection increased. Public WLAN in the city offers the user high comfort through a free and fast Internet connection without data limitation.
In addition, it forms the basis for the integration, networking and control of future technologies.
Environment: The integrated environmental sensor system measures, among other things, fine dust load and temperature around the clock and provides measuring data, which, for example, help to control traffic in a manner that is appropriate to the needs.
Microphone & Loudspeaker: The microphone is not only used to measure the volume level but, together with the loudspeaker, offers the possibility of communication between the emergency call center and the user in emergencies.
Emergency call button: An integrated emergency call system provides a direct connection to the nearest emergency call center within a matter of seconds, in order to provide rapid assistance if necessary.
Display Charge: The charging procedure for an electric vehicle can be started by identifying with the user card on the RFID sensor. The Charge display shows tariff information of the user and further information about the charging process during the entire charging process.
