Smart street lighting assigns to public street lighting. It adapts to movement by cyclists, pedestrians, and cars. It is also referred to as adaptive street lighting. The lights get dim when no activity or action is detected, but brightens when movement is perceived. It provides enhanced visibility, environment-friendly and energy saving solutions. It also helps in saving energy, reducing maintenance and lowering of costs. Some of the associated features are adaptability & compatibility, evolving & long-lasting solution, increased safety & visual comfort and evolving & resilience.
