Smart Lighting for Smart Cities

The winds of technical change are blowing through cities and communities. Digital networking is not only providing municipal authorities with considerable benefits but is also making cities safer and better places to live.

As far as outdoor lighting for cities is concerned, it is not just the light that is important but also adapting the light to meet the actual requirements in specific situations. Intelligent light responds to the individual needs of people and adjusts to them. Connected light enables cities and local authorities to go one stage further. For example, dangerous situations or emergencies can be quickly and easily alleviated by the lighting system on the basis of communication between individual components.

Tridonic has produced a microsite containing information about the internal workings of an outdoor luminaire. In addition to the smart city trend, the site covers topics such as flicker, thermal management and energy reduction, and invites users to take part in a “Trialogue” discussion forum. http://www.tridonic.com/int/trialogue/
