Traffic adaptive lighting for streets and highways
We help County Councils save energy and reduce light pollution without compromising road safety.
Make energy savings while maintaining road safety.
Street lighting that adapts automatically to traffic flow.
More energy savings with adaptive streetlighting
Managing streetlights in residential areas for energy usage can be easily done based on reasonable assumptions like that less people are outdoors in the middle of the night, but when it comes to managing streetlights on the main road arteries of a city, this is a totally different ball game. Energy consumption objectives cannot trump road safety and for that purpose you need to have live traffic information to adapt the street lighting according to the needs of vehicles circulation.
This is exactly what a County Council wanted to do and Urban Control designed the right solution for them. Urban Control integrated traffic flow monitors installed along the roadways selected by the Council and introduced the logic to adapt street lighting levels in real time according to the flow of traffic measured.
