Brasov, ROMANIA, July 10, 2018
Themed “Liveable & Sustainable Cities: Embracing The Future Through Innovation and Collaboration”, the 6th World Cities Summit in 2018 will explore how cities can be more liveable and resilient through better governance and planning, technology and social innovations, as well as collaborations with various stakeholders and with other cities. Through shared vision and active engagement, the public, private and people sectors can co-create innovative and integrated urban solutions for a more sustainable future.
inteliLIGHT presents its city sustainability vision and aim for flexible implementation and synergistic integration with other city systems. Street lighting control solutions have been around for quite some time now, but most companies have focused on closed, proprietary communications and software. Although integrated with different smart city services, sensors and even CCTV cameras, most of them are limited and do not offer much besides lighting control. Smart waste management, smart traffic management, smart parking – are just a few of countless smart services that a city can deploy today, but every one of these is mostly seen as a separate service, with its own communication infrastructure, software application and variables.
inteliLIGHT controllers do not use one, nor two, but six different open communication technologies, PLC and RF, private or public, that can be used individually or combined into the same project. And this is not all, the company’s R&D engineers are constantly assessing new IoT technologies that can be used for lighting control, preparing to expand even further the available options. Also, inteliLIGHT® comes with plug and play compatibility with major IoT/Smart City platforms, as companies like Cisco, Ericsson or Nokia are aiming to integrate individual smart services into real Smart Cities. It is no longer enough to control lighting and to gather sensor data. Integrators use big data and machine learning algorithms to make sense of it all, transforming data into actionable information and encouraging synergistic systems interaction.
“This is the first major event after ENGIE became the majority shareholder in Flashnet, earlier this month. It is a privilege to share our open street lighting control and smart city vision with ENGIE and to be able to present it to the world in the incredible city of Singapore. Singapore itself is a benchmark for what modern cities stand for, as we believe inteliLIGHT does for the streetlight control industry.” said Mr. George Zaharia, Business Development Manager of inteliLIGHT.
