Public lighting accounts for between 40% and 70% of municipalities electricity bills. Many cities are also already upgrading their lighting infrastructure to energy-efficient light-emitting diodes (LEDs) along with IoT device integration, enabling efficient remote management of public lighting.
Smart connected lighting provides on average more hours of illumination, but with dimmed power, optimally adjusted to the momentary local need and preferences of citizens. From a technological point of view, the digitalisation of lighting is based on three pillars: 1. sensors and actuators, 2. connectivity and 3. data processing.
Converting conventional lighting into a connectivity platform could further facilitate the provision of services that can help address current and future environmental, mobility, energy, and safety challenges.
Thanks to the generation of data produced by sensors and the application of predictive models using artificial intelligence, it is possible to know energy consumption with greater precision, carry out more efficient maintenance and save between 50% and 70% of energy.
Telefónica Tech has a set of solutions that allow us to guarantee the implementation of intelligent luminaires, taking into account the technological and economic aspects mentioned above.
