How intelligent lighting leads IOT applications

Security Exhibition] it has been powered on, connected to the network, and has really existed

ask anyone who works in the field of autonomous driving: some driven projects may take longer to achieve than optimists expect

in contrast, it is also an IOT driven technology, but it can provide rapid return on investment and produce immediate results

according to a Gartner report in 2018, intelligent lighting is the fourth mature technology in the IOT technology field, and it is also one of the fields close to universal adoption. Navigant also praised the rapid return period and great potential of intelligent lighting, and pointed out in its recent report that a fully deployed intelligent street lamp project can save 80% of the energy of traditional street lamp systems

as the Navigant report suggests, the entry-level case for smart street lighting is usually energy efficiency. This kind of lighting uses high-efficiency LED street lamps equipped with sensors without experiments, which can provide lighting according to the traffic needs of pedestrians and vehicles. When the streets are empty, the lights are dimmed to save money and resources

however, although energy efficiency is a huge advantage of intelligent lighting, it is only the tip of the iceberg. Like Navigant's so-called backbone network, the function of intelligent lighting is equally important. On this basis, various outdoor and indoor IOT solutions can be formed

outdoor lighting in smart city

let's start with the smart city outdoor being defined by IOT

the possibilities here are amazing. The IOT function embedded in the smart light pole can notify the emergency personnel at the first time by reporting the gunfire on the dark street, or when a witness finds that a nearby building is on fire

less noticeable is that integrating sensors and other IOT devices into the intelligent street lighting infrastructure can provide drivers with automatic updates of parking space availability, thus changing the driving experience in the city. The sensor can also detect which streets need to be cleaned, so that sanitation workers can go directly instead of driving heavy vehicles to patrol the streets as usual

the value of intelligent sensor networks in collecting operational data from urban environments has been fully affirmed. However, there are still questions about which sensors are suitable to be integrated into the intelligent street lighting system and which sensors are more suitable to be deployed as independent systems. In some cases, the answer is related to the sensing height above the street. For example, the appropriate height of the rain sensor is 9 meters, which is higher than the height of the standard lamp pole. On the other hand, the temperature and humidity sensors perform well at a height of 1 to 2 meters above the ground, which may facilitate pole integration. As cities gain more experience in such applications, the ideal plastic granulator will also cause serious environmental pollution, and the sensor/street lighting combination will become clearer

health problems

indoors, intelligent lighting has a powerful set of health functions that can be adjusted in different ways throughout the day to improve alertness and comfort

in the bedroom, intelligent lighting can stimulate the body's natural wake-up mechanism by simulating the hue of sunrise. After 14 hours, it can help you prepare for bed by providing a low light level and suppressing the light experience of blue wavelength. There is evidence that this helps to promote sleep. (from iothome) throughout the day, the IOT sensor embedded in the lamp can communicate with personal fitness equipment to enhance the circadian rhythm, so as to provide a more consistent and natural lighting stimulus curve

in the workplace, the construction manager can adjust the light angle to reduce glare, improve mood and enhance attention and alertness. With occupancy sensors, intelligent systems can direct high-quality light to areas where employees prefer to work and gather

indoor positioning gives full play to its potential

at the same time, indoor positioning provides one-stop services from design to manufacturing and processing for automotive enterprises, which is one of the most eye-catching projects of the lighting IOT. In fact, Gartner believes that indoor positioning is the second most mature IOT technology, and can give full play to its full potential in less than two years

in recent years, large-scale indoor location solutions have mainly focused on warehouse location, office internal employee guide and other employee oriented applications. However, with the maturity of technology, from supermarkets to hospitals, from hotels to museums, public oriented venues see potential not only in the convenience and accuracy of the indoor positioning system for customers and tourists, but also in the rich data it collects

for example, what is the way to arrange store planning to lead shoppers to where they most need to buy goods? And even sensors and cameras can accurately tell retailers. Where does the wheeled hospital equipment tend to be concentrated in a day? What can we infer from it about the needs of patients? These data can provide clues

citizens will also benefit from standardized indoor positioning solutions deployed in public buildings, making it easier for them to navigate and access services. In other words, the lighting based IOT solution provides an effective method (at least in part) to alleviate citizens' dissatisfaction with government services

already here

lighting is an eye-catching platform on which the next generation of people-oriented services can be built. The reason is very simple. No matter where people go, lighting already exists. It is also usually located overhead, which is a convenient location to provide comprehensive coverage

using intelligent lighting to enhance the lighting infrastructure of cities, industrial parks or stores will not damage the beauty or function of the space, nor will it require new architectural design

the intelligent lighting industry is paving the way for a new delivery model including lighting as a service. This method can almost eliminate the capital expenditure of intelligent lighting projects, and adopt the subscription mode, which places the reliable supplier and nut fastener at the center of intelligent lighting maintenance and improvement. This would be an attractive deal for both the public and private sectors

some more dramatic innovations driven by IOT may take some time to emerge. However, especially in our streets and workplaces, IOT is making rapid and stable progress in improving our lives. It is carried out in cooperation with reliable technology, and we are so used to this technology that we even ignore its existence: lighting
