Smart Cities:

Connected public lighting

Infrastructures and services play a key role in enabling cities to flourish. To be successful, Smart Cities must create an open, intelligent network of resources with central, comprehensive management via integrated software platforms and apps.


Public lighting plays a unique role, because it transforms the visual appearance of places, and can make urban areas accessible, usable, and safe at night. More than other city service, public lighting is closely interwoven with a place’s identity and character.

 

Public lighting can also play a unique role in Smart Cities. Because it’s already installed people live, work, play, and travel, it can serve as the backbone for a common services management infrastructure. The resources on these pages show you how the integration of light and data can make your city a Smart City.

2030: Smart
city life

 

The urban population is growing and by 2030, 60% of us will be living in cities. In these urban environments citizens will use new ways to access information, services and navigate spaces. Public lighting plays a unique role as it is already installed everywhere where people live, work, play and travel. It transforms the visual appearance of places and makes urban areas accessible, useable and safe at night. Our people-centric vision for lighting the connected city of 2030 illustrates why every city has the potential to ensure connectivity and sustainability, while enhancing the quality of life for its citizens.
