Brasov, ROMANIA, 06 November 2017
The UN Climate Change Conference is starting today in Bonn, and the city managers, together with Deutsche Telekom, wanted to make a statement: Bonn is becoming a Smart City. Part of the pilot project in Bonn, Deutsche Telekom is installing smart controllers for the street lamps, smart waste containers and air quality sensors.
Flashnet’s inteliLIGHT® NB-IoT street lighting control system has been selected to transform the existing lighting installation into a modern and proactive infrastructure. On the short term, the city management gains awareness and control over the entire street lighting grid, together with improved scheduling and maintenance optimizations. On the long run, everything is aimed to run more smoothly and efficient, aiming to significantly reduce the city’s environmental footprint.
The lights can be dimmed or even switched off in case of low traffic, by using a fixed timetable combined with motion-triggered adaptive lighting technology, thus minimizing the energy consumption. Furthermore, the system reports any malfunctions in real time, optimizing repair teams scheduling and lowering maintenance costs by an estimated 60%.
