Smart Lights Will Monitor Wind, Traffic, Waste and Air

A street lighting installation in England will feature ‘super smart’ luminaires which will monitor their environment. The light fixtures in Essex and Hertfordshire will:

  • look for blocked street drains and even predict flooding it happens
  • instantly alert the highways team of high winds, and predict dangerous driving conditions
  • measure traffic flows and dim unnecessary streetlighting on empty roads
  • monitor how full waste bins are
  • detect air quality and supply street-by-street status reports

Oh, and they’ll illuminate the roads. The project, a partnership with Cambridge-based technology firm Telensa, will assess the potential quality-of-life and economic benefits of a range of smart city technologies.
