Intelligent lighting that guarantees savings

Energy saving

dimmed lighting when not in use

The DigitalLightingTM system performs a second-by-second analysis on information of various types from the road and the surrounding area and decides whether energy consumption should be optimised by reducing the light intensity produced by individual street lamps.

Algorithms and sensors analyse the information

DigitalLightingTM, with integrated light sensors, cameras, radar, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, RFID and weather, reduces light pollution and saves electrical energy. With these technologies the system provides the optimum degree of lighting based on the presence of people, objects or special conditions on the road. The system is programmed on the basis of the astronomical calendar, for each day and individual lamppost, with unlimited lighting profiles and unlimited groupings of logical lighting points (i.e. street lights on intersections, roundabouts, straight roads, etc.). Finally, accounting for the hours of operation and consumption analysis make it possible to optimise maintenance and minimise costs.

Video surveillance and traffic monitoring

Safety

A very useful camera

A new frontier in security and smart savings. Camera surveillance and traffic analysis, simultaneous functions for efficient street lighting regulation. Object recognition, recognition of variation in scenes, special traffic situations can provide important information for optimising energy consumption.

Safety on the roads, an indispensable requirement

DigitalLightingTM ensures greater safety on the roads. In addition to “observing” the state of traffic from above, the builtin cameras can send images in real time to the supervisors, locally store high resolution videos available on request and analyse traffic of cars and people on the move, thus optimising lighting profiles. The use of integrated radar, in addition to or as a substitute, ensures operation of the system even in cases where low visibility can make camera vision less effective.

Full Wi-Fi coverage

services

Internet for everyone

Wi-Fi throughout the territory, broadband internet and communication with objects on the road. Analysis of the presence of people in motion with devices connected to the network and optimised street light management.

Free to browse

Because of the way it was designed, wherever there is one of its “nodes”, DigitalLightingTM, can extend the Internet HotSpot Wi-Fi coverage, at very low costs. The technology and integration used are the driving spirit behind a continually developing system. The imagination has free reign to think of new services for the people, making the most of the potential for "intelligent" objects (IOT, the internet of things) increasingly present in the streets

The “multi-sensory” feature at everyone’s service

services

Always up to date on what is happening

The DigitalLightingTM system uses various sensors to monitor the state of traffic, weather and road conditions. Information that can be used for various purposes.

Monitoring the traffic situation and more

To implement energy consumption optimisation strategies, the DigitalLightingTM multi-sensoryPP system can make a difference; analysing weather conditions, traffic and pollution, allowing for intervention on critical routes by suggesting possible variations in traffic organisation, for example, by optimising the functioning and timing of traffic lights: cameras provide information on the concentration of people and objects on the scene, radar controls the speed of movement, Bluetooth sensors pick up the travel times and flows on the roads, vibration sensors monitor the presence of heavy vehicles, Wi-Fi checks connections and the movement of people, RFID, ZigBee and “ibeacons” monitor the passage of elderly and children and those who use Apps for Smartphones, Integrated weather sensors measure the temperature, humidity and CO2, CO.

The solution to the problems related to parking

saving

Where find a parking space

The DigitalLightingTM system uses embedded sensors to verify the presence of unoccupied parking spaces and report them through Smartphone and Tablet Apps.

Mobility in urban areas: fundamental for the smooth running of any city

With the continuing increase in the number of cars on the road, the problem of mobility affects not only public space occupied but also the time and kilometres required to find a parking space. The DigitalLightingTM system reduces the search time, and ensures energy savings (fuel), but also the driver’s peace of mind when meeting commitments without wasting energy looking for parking. Providing drivers with accurate information on where to find available parking spaces facilitates the flow of traffic, thanks to software applications (Web Apps) that help locate parking.

The street light becomes an energy distributor

Services

Recharge the vehicle anywhere

The presence of a public lighting network means the providing of services for sustainable mobility, from cars to scooters and bicycles.

Communication and distribution network

There is an increasing presence of electric vehicles thanks to lower operating costs and their innate low-pollution design. The thing that is often missing is a station where they can “fill up” on energy. With the presence of street lamps along the roads, this problem can be handled through a network of recharge points links for vehicles. The DigitalLightingTM system manages user recognition, reports the user consumption, and searches for available parking space using the Web and dedicated Apps.

The service is ideal for locating people and providing assistance

Safety

Geolocation and communication with an integrated system

Children and the elderly can be located through the use of wearable objects (smart TAGs) that communicate with parents or with a service. All this improves safety but also lighting management.

Parents and children can feel more confident

DigitalLightingTM is also able to create coverage areas for communication with objects, such as Smartwatches, SmartTAGs, Smartphones and Tablets in order to decrease the distances between people. Children and the elderly can be “Localised’’ and therefore reached in exactly the place where they are located. A signal can travel through the network, and with the available application, reach the people involved. This mechanism can also be used to communicate the presence of people to the lighting network requesting that the local lighting be made brighter.

Ongoing pollution georeferencing

Services

Reducing pollution is not an utopian dream

DigitalLightingTM network can collect information relating to noise, temperature, humidity, CO, CO2, PM10 and more. Access to this data makes it possible to direct traffic toward less congested routes.

A network of sensors analyses the air and takes decisions

Through a georeferenced representation, the system can instantly analyse values and trends. The processed data can help those who analyse road network viability to send messages to motorists to divert traffic to less frequented routes. The analysis can be done either on the basis of statistics or time, in other words, changing routes in real time.

Variable automated message signs

Services

Real time information

The data processed by the DigitalLightingTM system can be shown on variable automatic message signs to keep citizens informed, but they can do more.

Any “object” along the way can communicate

Information coming from the street and from the Internet can be shown on panels of various dimensions affixed to public lighting poles and other structures. In fact the flexibility of a wireless system is precisely that it is not bound to a single power source. In addition to information of public interest, these panels can be used as advertising space that can be sold to third parties, giving a faster return on investment.

Territory monitoring to prevent disasters

Services

Promptly report possible danger

The DigitalLightingTM integrated detection system works round the clock, regardless weather conditions, ensuring reliable and uninterrupted detection.

Watercourses and fire hazard areas under control

Information on water levels in rivers (level sensors) and the state of forests (temperature, humidity and intensity of solar radiation) reach the processing system that generates reports on exceeded thresholds, through the DigitalLightingTM network. In addition, the built-in camera allows for the immediate visualization of the critical situation.

Enhance your area

Services

Additional services for tourism

The DigitalLightingTM enables targeted management of lighting, preferred routes, directions on variable message signs and communication with the tourist.

The classic and the technological

The enhancement of Italy’s vast cultural heritage is essential for revitalising tourism, but also for the inhabitants themselves to experience the city. Thanks to DigitalLightingTM, cultural heritage information that can be used by proximity services (Bluetooth) can be put online. In addition, the collection of information on movements and preferences of tourists can be helpful in improving the offer. Surveillance, with cameras, and Wi-Fi connectivity, complete the package of services for safety and entertainment.

Mobility with low environmental impact

Saving

For leisure or for work

New services for locating available bikes but also for managing their position (and their recharging) in an integrated and distributed system.

Bike sharing is showing its potential

Bikes in the city are undoubtedly the cheapest, greenest and healthiest means of transport. DigitalLightingTM makes it possible to communicate with the bikes to know their position and status (in the case of electric bikes). The parking areas can be smaller and distributed throughout the town so that it is easier to pick up and return the bikes. Special services, with video and web terminals, indicate the presence and position of available bikes.

Why DigitalLighting?


  • It is a point-to-point management system for lighting and SmartCity services such as: video surveillance, Wi-Fi hotspots and sensors, all in a single device
  • The economic savings, in addition to those savings achieved with intelligent management, are also due to the lower cost of purchasing a single integrated product
  • The network of street lights is managed by wireless nodes with broadband connection which make it independent from the power supply and distribution panel. The distribution of these devices enables internet coverage that is extended through the deployment of Wi-Fi hotspots throughout the city
  • The high performance cameras (5Mpx with interchangeable lenses) integrated with the node, in addition to video surveillance for increased security, perform real-time analysis of traffic with the aim of dimming the light where no movement is detected
  • The network has no limits in terms of: number of nodes installed, creation of daily lighting profiles and groupings of lighting fixtures. The street lamp operates autonomously, even when there is no connection to the network
  • Providing SaaS (Software as a Service), without the need for installation at the customer’s site, makes the system easy and fast to use via Smartphone, Tablet and PC. A single user interface (GUI) for the integrated management of lighting systems, video surveillance and SmartCity services, provides a greater level of usability
  • The analysis of presences and movements using: cameras, Doppler effect radar, interfaces, Bluetooth and RFID/NFC. The same interfaces also make possible to track people, objects and manages such services as BikeSharing, EasyParking and charging of electric cars and bikes
  • The system has a very high level of expandability and scalability and the return in investment can be very fast, or even exceeded, through the sale of advertising and information services

  • Return on investment (ROI)

  • The rate of return on investment depends on the characteristics of the installation, by the number of light points and the type of light/lamp installed. Experience has shown that by installing a management system, it is possible to save 20% compared to the conventional system, which pays for itself in 3-7 years. The return on investment for a smart DigitalLightingTM management system is reduced to 2-5, but the sale of services, advertising and information in the area, can reduce that time even further, to the point of eliminating operating costs.
