Reducing energy use and providing insight into the multitude of data about the city

Smart Street Lighting

NEC Smart Street Lighting uses LED technology and centralized control to reduce energy usage and costs. The deployment of an IoT network will ensure efficient street light maintenance and management. Smart Street Lighting is a sensor network infrastructure that efficiently collects data about the city in response to requests from various organizations. The system can be leveraged to create safe and secure cities, improve convenience for residents and visitors, and extract and analyze data to revitalize and grow cities.

Features and Benefits

Cost reduction

Converting to LED street lights can substantially cut energy use.

LED:Reduction of 70%! Finely controlled:Total reduction of 75%!

A lighting IoT network makes it possible to finely adjust clusters of lighting at once, leading to further power savings.

Lighting can be finely controlled by size and area

Efficient maintenance support

IoT sensors constantly monitor performance status, making it possible to promptly and efficiently repair and replace lights.

Basic set/Options

Scalability enables diverse and advanced utilization

Safe and secure cities

Remote cameras are used to monitor locations where street lights are deployed, allowing operators to address situations appropriately using LED signage or speakers.
In the event of an emergency, the network can be separated from the LTE network. The system can also be used as a service station to collect on-site information and guide people toward evacuation shelters.

Revitalizing cities by grasping the actual condition (Increase profits)

Captured images and data from cameras and sensors are analyzed to provide insight into the intensity of traffic, pedestrian traffic in relation to temperature and weather, and other parameters. The analyzed data can be used to prevent the occurrence of potential risks, and help spur revitalization of cities.
Guidance based on this data can also be provided via the LED signage and speakers.

Improving the efficiency of infrastructure

The introduction of Smart Street Lighting will enable municipalities to respond to requests for data from external organizations in the public and private sectors in an efficient manner without the need to invest in duplicate infrastructure.
