London Connects 28,000 Streetlights to IoT

London’s financial district, known as the City of London (12,000), as well as the Borough of Barking and Dagenham (15,500) in the city’s northeast, will now control street lights remotely using so-called Internet of Things protocol. The lights could eventually become part of an IoT scheme in which they help collect information on things like traffic, parking, noise, and air quality. The mesh topology treats street lights as nodes in a network, allowing lights to relay information to each other and thus ease the process of remote switching and dimming. It also helps to monitor the performance of each light, cutting down on maintenance costs. The Starfish mesh is supplied by Californian technology firm Silver Spring Networks.
