    Open systems and sensors improve quality of life for citizens

    The Los Angeles Bureau of Street Lighting and Philips Lighting have collaborated on a program that uses CityTouch connected street lighting management and connected sensors to obtain additional value from the public lighting system, which manages 110,000 street lights across the city. By adding sensors to the light poles and employing an open systems approach, the lighting infrastructure can now be used to monitor environmental noise for quieter streets and healthier citizens, and to monitor the lighting power grid for more reliable and responsive operations.


    The LA pilot projects demonstrates how a connected street lighting infrastructure and an open systems approach support evolving smart city applications for a more efficient and livable city.
