German Town Taps Bluetooth-Enabled Outdoor Luminaires to Transmit Information About What’s Happening

The German town of Wipperfürth is using outdoor LED luminaires to transmit wireless information to residents and visitors about things happening in the city, marking the first known public deployment of Osram’s Bluetooth-based Einstone location-based service technology. Wipperfürth has installed about 20 of Osram’s Siteco-branded City Light columns in pedestrian areas and parks, each equipped with Bluetooth transmitters mounted within the luminaire at the top of the columns, which also include Osram’s new 540 Plus LED Module for illumination. Smartphone users who download the town’s free WippApp receive information about events, shops, promotions, restaurants, churches, and more in Wipperfürth The town controls the lights centrally with Osram’s Street Light Control (SLC) software, which can change light colors to provide different scenes, and which also provides remote monitoring of operations. http://www.ledsmagazine.com/
