Philips Teams With Cisco and Dutch Energy Utility Alliander on Smart Lighting Project

The threesome teamed with a private-public group called Amsterdam Smart City, Dutch telecoms giant KPN, and others to install a connected lighting scheme and public Wi-Fi at Hoekenrodeplein, a large modern square with shops, hotels, and music that’s near Amsterdam Arena — the city’s main soccer (football) stadium and mega concert venue. Intelligent lighting taps wired and wireless information technology networks to allow users to remotely and dynamically change lighting brightness, colors, and the like. It also embeds sensors into luminaires and lighting fixtures/accessories such as lamp posts to note everything from crowds, traffic, parking conditions, air quality, and much more, and to feed that information to systems and users who could benefit from it. The Dutch project provides an early example of how the lighting industry and the IT and energy worlds are trying to cooperate on intelligent lighting. http://www.ledsmagazine.com
