What Is Intelligent Street Lighting?

Intelligent street lighting is expected to become an important breakthrough in building smart city. The future in the wireless WiFi, charging pile, data monitoring, environmental monitoring, poles and other fields, can rely on street lights and intelligent control platform to achieve.

Intelligent street light is the application of advanced, efficient and reliable power line carrier and wireless GPRS / CDMA communication technology, to achieve the remote centralized control and management of the street. The system has the functions of automatically adjusting brightness according to traffic flow, remote lighting control, wireless network coverage, fault active alarm, lighting cable security, remote meter reading and other functions, can significantly save power resources, enhance public lighting management level, the use of urban road intelligent lighting System, operation and maintenance costs will be reduced by 56% per year.

National Bureau of Statistics data show that from 2004 to 2014, the number of urban road lighting from 10.5315 million to 2301.91 million, the city road lighting industry to maintain rapid development trend. In addition, in recent years, China's total electricity consumption of lighting accounts for about 14% of electricity consumption. Among them, the road and landscape lighting electricity consumption accounts for about 38% of lighting electricity consumption, becoming the largest area of lighting. Traditional street lamps generally sodium-based, high energy consumption and high wear, and LED lights can reduce power consumption, the overall energy saving rate can reach 50% or more. After the intelligent transformation, the intelligent LED lights comprehensive energy-saving rate is expected to reach 70%.

As of last year, the number of China's intelligent city construction has reached 386, the wisdom of the city by the concept of exploration gradually into the substantive construction stage. With the acceleration of the construction of the wisdom of the city, as well as Internet of things, cloud computing and other new generation of information technology widely used, intelligent street light construction will usher in rapid development opportunities. Expected by 2020, China's LED intelligent street lamp market penetration will increase to about 40%
