San Diego Broadly Deploys Cameras And Sensors On LED Street Light Poles

The city of San Diego, CA is currently deploying what is arguably the largest smart city and Internet of Things (IoT) project yet to be undertaken globally by a municipality. Already the city has deployed 2000 smart nodes based on technology from Current, powered by GE and Intel, and the size of the network should double by mid-2019. Some of the software and applications might still be described as trials or prototypes, but the project is a full-fledged, city-wide deployment with the nodes mounted on selected LED street light poles upon which the city had previously installed solid-state lighting (SSL) with integrated wireless connectivity. The new smart nodes include cameras and other sensors, connected via high-speed cellular technology, that are capturing anonymized data which the city will use to better serve citizens and visitors. That data will also be available to organizations and businesses located in San Diego. https://www.ledsmagazine.com/
